Question posited on Reddit forum: “How do you justify people being sent to hell? I don’t think anyone who has ever lived or ever will live deserves to go to hell.”
Actually, concerning God’s sovereignty, it does not matter what any human being thinks as this is God’s creation and He is God. Hell was NOT created for mankind but God created Hell specifically for Satan, the fallen angels (Matthew 25:41) guilty of the rebellion in the Kingdom of God that initiated the creation of Time, this Universe, the human genome; Satan, the Beast, the False Prophet and the fallen angels (demons) that allied with Satan will be relegated to Hell and suffer eternally subsequent to the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ (Revelation 20:10).
Mankind will enter Hell subsequent to the Judgment of the Condemned (Revelation 20:11-15) by first climbing directly over the Cross of Jesus Christ who suffered and died to provide you and to provide me a pardon from death in sin and death in Hell (John 3:16-18). God the Father does not desire that anyone perish in Hell but that every man and woman be saved and come to a knowledge of the Truth (1 Timothy 2:4); unfortunately, mankind is obstinate, arrogant, narcissistic, foolish; therefore, the Scriptures tell us that “many” will choose to die in Hell and only a “few” will humble them self before God the Father, repent of their sin and sincerely believe and trust in Jesus Christ as God who died to pay their sin-debt and find life in the Kingdom of God (Matthew 7:13-14). This is NOT God’s doing nor is it His will, this is mankind’s decision via free will in obstinance and arrogance and unbelief to reject life in Jesus Christ and choose death in Satan and Hell by default.
Hell, the Lake of Fire, Gehenna, is necessary because God the Father is NOT going to permit your unrepentant sin and its destructive potential to enter His Kingdom subsequent to the death of your body in Time (Revelation 21:27); therefore, mankind will deal with their sin now in that Age of Grace by grace (unmerited favor) through faith (trusting-believing) in Jesus Christ as Mediator for that sin (John 3:18) – or – mankind will reject Jesus Christ and serve Satan by default and die in sin (John 8:24) and die the “second death” in Hell (Revelation 20:11-15). There are no other options available to human kind (John 14:6; John 8:24) The choice is yours to make.
