God's Righteous Judgement.

The Bible records that God's judgements are such that people will learn righteousness (Isaiah 26:9).

Will a child of God (of which All humans are) learn righteousness by watching God who is LOVE endlessly torture their mother or father, brother sister, spouse, son, daughter grandmother or grandfather friend or even someone they considered their enemy, who did not know there was "sinner's prayer", let alone pray it, in the torture chamber of hell fire forever? James records that “mercy shall triumph over judgment” (James 2:13). Yet according to most (if not all) christian denominations, the vast majority of God's created loved people will NOT receive God’s mercy, but be eternally damned to hell in which there is NO mercy.

According to scripture, ALL people were consigned to death because of Adam, but according to religious tradition, only a handful will receive eternal life despite the fact that Paul repeated stated in his writings that ALL mankind would receive eternal life through Christ’s single act of righteousness on behalf of all mankind. (Rom. 5:15-21, 1 Cor. 15:22, 1 Tim. 2:3-6, 1 Tim. 4:9-11, 1 Cor. 15:55, Col. 1:16-20, Eph. 1:10, Phil. 2:9-11, 1 Cor. 15:28, 1 Cor. 3:15, ROM 11:15, Heb. 1:2, etc.)

In both testaments the recorded original languages do not, let me repeat...DO NOT... contain such a despicable understanding of God’s punishments or God being such a diabolical monster.

There are English Bible translations which do not contain the concept of Hell nor eternal punishment. Some of these Bibles are: Rotherham’s Emphasized Bible (Kregal Publishers), Young’s Literal Translation of the Holy Bible (Baker Book House Publishers), Concordant Literal Translation of the N.T. (Concordant Publishing Concern), Scarlet’s New Testament (Nathaniel Scarlett, 1798), The New Testament (Abner Kneeland, 1823) Emphatic Diaglott (Greek/English Interlinear), The New Covenant (J.W. Hanson, 1884), New Testament in Modern Speech (Weymouth, 1910), The Restoration of Original Sacred Name Bible (1976), The Twentieth Century New Testament (1900), The New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Anointed (James L. Tomanek, 1958), The Western New Testament (1926), The New Testament, a Translation (Edgar Lewis Clementson, 1938), The People’s New Testament (Arthur Overbury), The Holy Bible in Modern English (Ferrar Fenton), The New Testament, A New Translation based upon the Oldest Manuscripts (Johannes Greber, 1980).

There are other translations such as the Companion Bible King James Version, American Standard Version (1901), the Newberry Reference Bible (Still published by Kregal Publications), and the Riverside New Testament by Ballantine (1934) which contain footnotes, marginal readings and appendages which point out that several key Greek and Hebrew words have been Mistranslated by such Bible versions as the King James Bible.

Shouldn't that pose enough evidence to search where the concept of a place of everlasting burnings in literal flames in a place called Hell comes from to see if it is a figment of man's imagination polluted with Greek mythology,  rather than the heart of God.
