"They just burn up.  No eternal seperation from God or anything."
Again, I'm going to stress that I'm more curious than anything.  Your logic makes sense, but I"m still kind of confused.  I DON'T WANT TO DEBATE.  I just want to know if you can elaborate on this a little:  So sinner just, like, *poof*, gone?  Or...what?  Sorry, I'm confused.  And I think I asked this before, but...purgatory?  Does this have anything to do with that?  Or do you not believe in purgatory (which, again, I wont/can't argue).
 
No One in Particular:  I think the reason God doesn't just come down and make us understand everything is that it would take away our free will.  We have to freely choose God to truly love him.  If we don't have free will, we're not really human and therefore not capable of that.  God already has lots of animals who he can sha-zam into loving him, but we have a greater capacity for loving him if we have the abilty to do so freely.
 
hehe....sha-zam.  That's a verb now, u guyses.

I'm back!

To everyone I skimmed over: Sorry, It was too long, and looked like a tangent.
Des: Okay, now that I have Wi-Fi again I can discuss the... whatever it was that we were going to discuss. Oh yeah, Justice and Punishment! I think it depends on the situation. I'll post again when I think up an example. :)
