Yeah he desires that you not perish in hell, but he requires that you believe that Jesus is his Son and that he was raised from the dead and is not seated at his right hand making intercession on your behalf.
I do not believe. Period. If Jesus ever
existed as a human being, I do
believe that his mortal remains lie in a mass grave outside Jerusalem. The reason for this is quite simple: To the best of my knowledge, the Romans were not in the habit of handing over the bodies of convicted criminals for private burial.
Furthermore, I do not think that he, or anyone else, ever came back to life.
And I reject the concept of someone dying for me for any reason whatsoever. Given the choice between accepting substitutionary atonement in lieu of paying my own debts, and going to Hell... Bring on the flames. I choose of my own free will to go there, in solidarity with all
other sentient beings so condemned. For me, Heaven is permanently off the menu on moral grounds.
Edited to add: All the above is a moot point. I do not actually believe in either Heaven or Hell, nor do I believe in the god of the Bible.
