If god put people on earth to test their faith but needs hell or promised rewards does it already prove the people aren't loyal?

if you need scares or bribes to keep people in line doesn't that prove they aren't faithful in the first place? Wouldn't a true follower follow you without the needs for threats or bribes?

    Hell is for serious crimes. Not petty ones. And there are different levels of hell.

    God gave people free will. That means souls can decide to follow Gods rules or not. Hence why Eve gave in to temptation and knowingly disobeyed Gods rule. God wants his people to believe in and follow him but he knows they dont have to.

      wouldn't god want people to be faithful to him without needing heaven or hell as motivation?
