Wouldn't you still love them when they didn't go with your rules?
Or would you tell them "Here's your free will, do whatever you choose, but here are my rules, you have to listen to them or face eternal pain"
How is it really free will if you are facing hell for not going with what he says??

Ah! You will still love them, but would you condemn them to an eternity of suffering and pain because of the choices they made? Say they did stay out all night and participated in a drunken orgy, would you tie them to a chair and stab them over and over until they died as punishment?
I don't see how any loving, good and kind God would punish his creation in that manner simply because they refused to believe in him or love him. Sounds like an angry, needy, juvenile, tyrannical, egotistical psychotic to me.
You say God has a plan and yet you turn around and say everyone has free will. You can't have both... or else your saying your God knew head of time he'd have to send you to hell for the choices he allowed you to think you made and he was just peachy keen with that idea.

God does not teach that you will go to hell for not following His rules. You go to hell by not accepting Christ. Christ has already paid the price for our sins. All you have to do is acknowledge that fact and accept the gift He has given. Salvation has nothing to do with rules.
