No sin is heinous enough to deserve that level of existence. There is absolutely no justice in that.
I agree and think that the Scriptures indeed teach that the wages of sin are death, not a perpetual state of life in torment.

What did you think of the arguments in the thread I referred you to? Are you open to the possibility that the Scriptures teach annihilation and not eternal torment?

I am open to the possibility of annihilation, sure. It's far better to have non-existence. . . . especially if it IS true that a spirit/soul has not rights to accept God after it is apart from it's body of earthen dust. It is a much better way to treat those who want no part of God.

That does not mean it's not real. The Bible speaks of it other wise

The pages of text that were included in Canon have many passages that are figurative language. I see "fire" as an often used analogy.
