To quote (short version) a certain book:
"YOUR God, YOUR rules, YOU burn."
I always wondered if hell was all fire and burning and heat, would you eventually get used to the heat, kind of like a hot tub? Eternity is a long time, I think you'd eventually get used to it.
Also if satan or the devil are evil, why would they torture other evil people? Wouldn't they welcome their evil brothers,maybe treat them to infinite hookers and blow or something?

Yes, i gave the oversimplified version of the text and the idea.
You are correct IMO about doing the right thing.
Personally i´ve always loved the way that Bruce Joel Rubin put it:
"The only thing that burns in hell is the part of you that won't let go of your life: your memories, your attachments. They burn 'em all away. But they're not punishing you,' he said. 'They're freeing your soul. If your frightened of dying, and your holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. If you've made your peace then the devils are really angels freeing you from the earth.”

I know Iam I do a moral job not many people could bare, I help others blah blah blah.
But at the end of the day If I meet my God I will question the heck outa him and argue things from my perspective If he sees wrong in what I do.
But If he/she threatens me with Hell I will denounce that God.
Only religion has Hell, God wouldn't.

No your mind has made those visions,because that is what you were taught, a Hindu will have Elephant God visions and If you were brought up in Japan it would be Shinto spirits.
The human mind can make those visions in times of stress...all to do with which cultural religion you have been brought up with.
You have been taught to believe you have not figured out the mind of God..none of us have and never will, nor will we know the big why? question...maybe If we die and meet God but God is no religious God..how do I know this?
I used my own God given free mind to figure it out I didn't fall for another mans version of it all.
We all know about going to Heaven and how it is supposed to happen. Not many people talk about Hell, however. If you do believe in literal Hell, how does one know one is going to Hell after death? I am talking about the transition to Hell, from the moment of death to the beginning of the punishment.
