Can't I still believe in endless hell and God's unconditional love?
I still believe in endless hell, but I also believe God's love is unconditional and totally committed. What's wrong with just loving and trusting God and leaving all mysteries in His good hands?
That is a good attitude to adopt. That is, if you're absolutely certain you can prove that endless torment is an essential yet mysterious doctrine taught in Scripture. And it's a worthy attitude if you're sincerely convinced that God's prophetic word, as well as His will, purpose, and desire to redeem His whole creation will be thwarted forever.
We all must be prepared to give a reason for the hope that lies within us, according to Paul. How do you explain your hope to people who ask, "Why would a loving God create people whom He already knows are doomed for endless agony?" How do you assure them of God's unconditional love-and total commitment-from a Scriptural basis?
