But it does suck to know that all those wicked corrupt politicians and bankers will just be getting away with murders and atrocities.

A failure because he gave every person free will to do as they please? I mean... how fun would life be if everyone were just automatons? What would be the point?

None of us agreed to accept your god's impossibly high standards from day one.
No loving God would demand that we glorify Him/Her/It. I think that seeing us grow and flourish and love each other would be enough. Therefore, I call the Christian god, precisely as it exists in the mind of Christians, a false god.
None of us chose to be born on this planet. None of us agreed to accept your god's impossibly high standards from day one
"On your day of gladness, we [Christians] neither cover our doorposts with wreaths, nor intrude upon the day with lamps.
At the call of public festivity, you consider it a proper thing
to decorate your house like some new brothel.
We are accused of a lower sacrilege because
we do not celebrate along with you the holidays ..."

CHRISTMAS AND PAGANISM; The Winter Solstice
"Familiar to early Christians was the Saturnalia,
an ancient Roman festival celebrated during the
last days of December in honour of Saturn, the god
of agriculture. The Saturnalia...was diametrically
opposed to the teachings of Christ."
- Hidden Truths About Christmas
"To the pagans, the Saturnalia was fun.
To the Christians, the Saturnalia was an
abomination in homage to a disreputable god
who had no existence anyway."

Bro, most chistians are going to end up in hell. Why? Because the Protestant Reformation failed. Martin Luther failed to complete the Reformation. Even today most christians celebate holidays like Christmas and Easter when the firest 3-4 generations of christians refused to celebrate.
16 Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good[e] Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?” 17 So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good?[f] No one is good but One, that is, God.[g] But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” 18 He said to Him, “Which ones?” Jesus said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ 19 ‘Honor your father and your mother,’[h] and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”

Who are you to say who is going to hell? That's a blasphemy against your ''lord'' in itself.
Also, why would most of us go to hell? I thought your lord was all forgiving and merciful. And as you sit here being the hypocrite you are, what makes you so sure that you will be in heaven yourself?
What have you done that makes you stand out form ''most'' of us. Before sitting here acting like you're Jesus himself. Check yourself, my revelation to you, is I'm sure you are no saint yourself. What comes of telling people they will go to hell? That's hate. Hate inside you.
Now you, go repent.
