So was Peter, James, John and Jude. None of them preached the truth about what happens to those whose names are not in the book of life. Apparently they are all tormented for eternity. So whose fault is it that none of them preached this doctrine to the Gentiles?

Why did the Apostles not preach the truth of eternal torment?

If you contend that the Apostles did preach "the truth of eternal torment", what do you understand to be the nature of that "eternal torment"?

I wonder if he thinks John had anything to do with Jesus, since he wrote about it, or any
of the writers of the gospels, since they quoted Jesus for us.

The question is where in Pauls letters, did he explain to the GENTILES THEN AT THAT TIME, about the dire consequences of eternal torment of not knowing Christ etc? The word torment does not exist in Pauls letters.
"And to you who are being afflicted, rest with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with the angels of His power, in flaming fire,
Rendering vengeance to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
They will pay the penalty of eternal destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His strength When He comes to be glorified in His saints ..." (See Second Thessalonians 1:7-10)

Does eternal torment exist? Yes or no? You said no. You said "...it doesn't exist".
So where does that leave "the truth" of what the Apostles preached?

In one of the earliest of his epistles Paul taught of eternal destruction and eternal judgment.

No one should take a chance.
Obey the Gospel of Christ to believe into Christ.

Do you believe they preached something different then from what sonship argues the Book of Revelation says?
