either way his dad is gone and he's left with the miserable things to face. God will be merciful if you have faith if not He land upon your head all the miseries there is just as he did with Satan whom he created. If he can punish Satan with FIRE what makes you think he won't punish those little humans who defy HIM. Fear God or you'll face the brunt of His meriless wrath just as he did to the JEWS. Don't underestimate his wrath or confuse His love for He is JUST!
