From the Paper:

"These options show that going to heaven is better than oblivion, and that oblivion is better than eternal torment. Therefore, the best option is to believe in God. This argument is supposed to be a last resort for converting non-believers by scaring them with the possibility of going to hell. However, the argument is flawed because it made certain assumptions that are still controversial such as the idea that God rewards believers (what if God is indifferent?) and that God is a Christian God (if there are other gods, then there might be other possibilities of going to heaven other than the options above)."
