With all the cruel punishment being received by sinners all though out hell, many question the mercy of God that is being preached. But those skeptics refuse to accept that every human was warned of the consequences that would result from their actions before they ever even thought about committing that sin. Not only that, but they are also given a chance to repent and find their way back to the right path, but they refused to.
