I read in The Silmarillion that the Valar forbade the Númenóreans going to the Undying Lands. Was this rule made by Eru himself and did he love Elves more than Men? Both Elves and Men were the Children of Ilúvatar.
I found it hard to explain to people that God abandoned Men in Middle-earth by removing Aman from Arda and the fact that Valar did not go to Middle-earth to destroy Sauron like they did to Morgoth.
Edit: I found some evidence that Mandos really hated Men in the Undying Lands, when Eärendil went to the Undying Lands for the Valar's help against Morgoth:
It is told among the Elves that after Eärendil had departed, seeking Elwing his wife, Mandos spoke concerning his fate; and he said: 'Shall mortal Man step living upon the undying lands and yet live?' But Ulmo said:' For this he was born into the world. And say unto me: whether is he Eärendil Tuor's son of the line of Hador, or the son of Idril, Turgon's daughter, of the Elven-house of Finwë? And Mandos answered: 'Equally the Noldor, who went wilfully into exile, may not return hither.'
