Easy.  Stockholm syndrome.

But seriously, you need to get that idea out of your head.  How can you parade around an image of the Divine Mercy on this forum and have a view of such a merciless God?
He loves you, He is not going to punish you.  Sinners punish themselves.  Cling to Him and you will not go wrong.

Exactly. We all have free will. In essence, Hell is the logical result of our own choices. We can choose to follow God, or we can choose to reject him. There is no gun to our heads forcing us to sin. God wants us to be in heaven with him. Jesus suffered unspeakable torment, all because of our sins.
