    I don't believe that 99% of people will be in hell. None of us really know the figures. If it is the case that greater numbers will be in hell, and it may be, I think the problem is not so much that God is not loving, but rather man has a nature that is opposed to love. The cross however offers every man woman and child an escape from hell, an act that demonstrates God's love to us.

    Gen 6:5-6 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

    None of us really know how bad humanity can get if left to itself. When God made man even He did not know they would as a general rule oppose Him. We also see God put age limits on man, due to the fact that age did not result in greater repentance:

    Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

    I have in the past struggled in a similar way to you about hell, but I came to the conclusion, we have the sight to see the cross, an act of forgiveness, why throw away God's forgiveness. If I a lifelong sinner, can see the power of the cross to save me and free me from sin, so too can others. I just need to trust in God's mercy for each man. That He will do the same for them as He has done for me. God is love, He is merciful, we only have to look at what he has done for us. He is attempting the same for others.

    I see.

    On the another point, it is my pyre. Red, it certainly is not. And if white, only in a limited way. Do only as the Lord leads for I do not want to see another brother burn on my account. The wood has been lit. Maybe it will just smolder, LOL. Let he who has ears....
