I'm not saying that he is lying, but I dont believe or follow anything he or anyone else says about taking trips to hell/heven. If you have read/studied the bible, you will find that it is against personal revelations. The bible pretty much says that personal revelations should be exactly that, PERSONAL.

Because he wanted you to choose your own path. It wouldn't be that fun if you knew what everyone was going to do...would it? It is a given that people will stray away from their beliefs, all he wants is you to do is go back to him. No matter what kind of sin you committed, as long as you repent and try to better yourself by realizing your mistakes, he will forgive you.
I like when people ask this question, because majority of Christians don't know how to answer it. The best gift God gave for us is free will. People think it is marriage, but truly it is free will. He wants you to be happy but at the same time you should know evil will try to corrupt you. He wants you to follow your own path, at the same time he wants you to be good. He is like a father. He wants you to do things on your own, learn on your own, and grow on your own. He gives you enough tools to reject evil, the rest is all on your own.
Because like God, satan wants to take credit for leading as many of his followers away as possible. At one time, God and Satan used to be in harmony. Satan was jealous of God because all the angel worshiped him. So Satan lured 1/3 of God's angels away, and so he was cast out. God did not want to destroy something that was so beautiful.
