    I have read the whole Bible...there are many verses that say the opposite of what other verses say

    You haven't read Romans one, apparently.

    Jesus did not make His teachings hard to understand.

    It says the invisible things are clearly seen.... that is about as true as "ask anything of the father in my name and it will be done"

    That is why Christians are so divided

    What is it that "ungodly" men do?

    Romans 1:18–20

    God's Wrath on Unrighteousness

    For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. [19] For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. [20] For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (ESV)

    I have met Christians who are divided over whether or not a person is in agony forever in hell...hell could be a place where a person is burned up and ceases to exist

    You have met some people who hold those views, I'm sure.

    What is amazing is not that God should punish sinners eternally, but that He should spare me and that the Lord Jesus should suffer so terribly to redeem me eternally.

    The remarkable thing is not that God should hate Esau, but that He should love Jacob.

    God says:

    And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”

    For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people,

    And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’”

    For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.

    And through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

    On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined. And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken.

    God gave His own Son to die in the place of sinners, and yet they keep on rejecting Him, spitting on Him, and so God is permitting them to go to Hell, for if they despised Jesus here, Hell to them would be around Him forever!

    .
    I am a desperately wicked sinner. You too are a desperately wicked sinner. God is pure and Holy and He truly is love: but He won't tolerate sin in His presence. You and I deserve His justice. You and I deserve Hell. But God loved us so much that he made a way for us to have eternal life instead of eternal death. He sent His only begotten Son to die in our place.

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Why do we love Him? Because He first loved us. see 1 John 4:19
