My sister says that Yahweh will make her forget me. True?

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. Revelation 21:4

I told my sister how it offends me that she will go to heaven and look down on me in hell and be ok with it. She says it's not true. She says that Yahweh will make her forget me, and forget that anyone is in hell. She knows this, because she knows that there is no suffering in heaven, and the knowledge that her brother is in hell would cause her tremendous suffering.

I have to say that my sister is at least being as compassionate as she can. But still, this is really, really offensive. She knows that Yahweh is going to do something terrible, something that will rip her apart inside, but still she follows him. That doesn't sound like love. That sounds like abject servitude.

Do Christians really believe that Yahweh will make you forget all of us billions in hell? Or will you know, and just look down callously on us and cluck your tongues over our "choice" to go to hell?

Best answer, posted by "Jeffrey":

You choose to go to Hell! Why the hell would you want to go to hell. God sent his son so that you could go to heaven and you want to go to hell. That's Crazy. Your causing all that pain on your sister because you want to go to hell. Where's your love for your sister. She already showed you her love for you by showing you what God did in love for you. And you want to dump all this on your sister. That's mean!

My response:

The best part about this answer is that it is so not-even-wrong that I can't tell whether you're joking! Thanks for the, uhh, laugh, well, I chuckled a bit and raised a bemused eyebrow.
