God doesn't owe us a thing except his wrath. It is only by his unmerited Grace that we are shown any consideration at all. We all chose Satan and his ways at the fall and if God chooses to save any of us it is by his Grace and to our infinite good fortune. The rest of us get the fate of our master, an eternity in hell.
