Who told you this? Is this one of these stories that has been passed from mouth to ear, then pen to paper for thousands of years claiming to be the true word of some invisible deity? Or do you claim 'special' powers in that you can know the mind of said deity (how you know that it's the one you think your worshipping I don't know)

So by threatening us with eternal damnation in the pit of hell is the best incentive that it could come up with. No thanks
The saints had God in them, so they are all full of God. Its hard to explain this, but he wants us not to worship like drones, but like chilren to a father.
