 The Brothers Winchester have died more often than most main characters, so while it’s disconcerting, it’s not particularly unusual for them to die again in violent fashion. It does remind the audience that there are plenty of hunters with a bone to pick with the brothers, and it also serves the purpose of sending the boys to the “Supernatural” version of heaven.
I think a lot of those who criticize the depiction of religious concepts on “Supernatural” display an unfortunate level of insecurity in their own beliefs. Fiction doesn’t have to conform to any specific religious interpretation; it only has to be self-consistent. In terms of how God has been portrayed on the show, this is consistent.
Personally, I think it’s a bit of a lost opportunity. Why bring God into the equation, if you’re not going to pull that trigger? I have offered a scenario in the past in which God essentially tells Sam and Dean that the idea is for humanity to find its own path to salvation, along the lines of “God helps those who help themselves”, but this is a bit of a cruel way to do it.
