I don't think that is what 'most' religious people believe. I think 'most' are responding to God's love and a personal relationship.<quoted text>
That's your interpretation of god. The majority of religious people in the US believe that if you don't love and worship god you burn in a lake of fire for all eternity.
That's not love - that's an abusive relationship.
I do however think that being apart from God would be very unpleasant, but that is your choice, right?
