Pathetic attempts to evade the topic being discussed. I told you several times to quote the Bible to prove your case.

Three would be enough, but solid ones. This is a great example of how Christian apologists boast about having evidence and proof, but once you scratch under the surface, you find that there is nothing under. I remind you that you have STILL NOT QUOTED ONE SINGLE VERSE. Give me solid, Biblical proof that even the unsaved are granted immortality. That's all I'm asking, yet you keep avoiding to do it.

That's bullshit.

John 5:29, 2 Cor. 5:10, 11:15; James 2 almost entirely, Matt. 7:21, 24, 16:27, Rev. 20:13, 23, 22:12; 1 Pet. 1:17, Luke 20:35, etc.

I'm not arguing against this, if I assume that Christianity is true. I'm arguing that infinite suffering is unwarranted and unsupported by the Bible.

To prove your credibility? Out of those "many" verses, it would be good that you, for the sake of your own reputation, provide at least a few solid ones.

I found it always appealing that the Bible teaches simple trust in god while each other religion I've encountered says that doing something(s) saves one's soul, pays karma, eradicates ignorance/enlightens, etc.

The Bible can be made to teach anything. It's only the matter of which verses you pick and hold to.
