Heck, no.

In many mythological, folklore and religious traditions, hell is a place of eternal torment in an afterlife, often after resurrection. It is viewed by most Abrahamic traditions as a place of punishment. Religions with a linear divine history often d... epict hells as eternal destinations. Religions with a cyclic history often depict a hell as an intermediary period between incarnations. Typically these traditions locate hell in another dimension or under the Earth's surface and often include entrances to Hell from the land of the living. Other afterlife destinations include Heaven, Purgatory, Paradise, and Limbo.Other traditions, which do not conceive of the afterlife as a place of punishment or reward, merely describe hell as an abode of the dead, a neutral place located under the surface of Earth. Modern understandings of hells often depict them abstractly, as a state of loss rather than as fiery torture literally underground, but this view of the concept of a hell can, in fact, be traced back into the ancient and medieval periods as well. Hell is sometimes portrayed as populated with demons who torment those dwelling there   more

What does morally nice mean?

What the *expletive* does "nice" have to do with anything? He is just, He shows compassion and mercy to human beings, but the Bible doesn't mention God being "nice".

Wow Vox_Veritas someone is asking you to think for yourself that must be a challenging for you

I agree that "morally nice" should have just been "nice", but the God of the bible is most certainly not nice.

Hmm, good question. I've never met him and I don't know what you mean by morally nice.

Seriously, what does morally nice mean?
ClashnBoom says2015-09-03T02:03:22.6872399Z
Is God nice and moral according to the Bible? You can have great morals but not show that your nice.

Good is not always nice. I think that's the main issue that people have with this debate.

God is angered by sin but He is love. Where you define 'nice' as kind, yes he is.

I cannot vote, as the question makes no sense. "Nice" is not a moral position. Someone can be just as nice while they are committing morally wrong actions as when they are doing good. "Is God morally just?" would make more sense, and to that question I can answer yes. He is a God of mercy but also of justice, of righteousness but also of righteous anger, and while he loves his creation, he also cannot abide by sin and therefore is a God of wrath as well as of love.
