"Wouldn't a truly benevolent God simply hand us the gift of eternal life if we accept it rather than keeping tabs of our rights and wrongs?
I think so."

Not if "accepting" that eternal life involves making a blind guess of faith regarding which religion to follow. If God sends people to hell based on their religion, most of the people that make it to heaven are there simply by virtue of the fact that they were born christian, and that is simply not fair. A far more fair and wide-encompassing requirement is to make life as liveable as possible for all fellow cellmates.
