Here's what I believe. God made us in His image to love and serve Him. He gave us free will and choice to pursue Him or to pursue worldly gains. God wants us to choose Him, but does not force Himself on us. To me, hell is the absence of God, not necessarily a specific place.

If you believe that God created 'us' and you believe that God knows all that is, that was, and that shall ever be...then the idea of 'free will' is ludicrous. He "creates" with the knowlege of every door we will open, every thought we'll have, and every choice that we'll make...because that's the way he MADE us!
