• The Bible says that God will reconcile all things in heaven and all things on earth to Himself, having made peace through the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross. Could hell, which is described as a place of endless torture for the vast majority of people, be in the remotest way considered as reconciliation of all things, and a means of bringing PEACE between God and His created people? (Colossians 1:20)
Traditional Christianity argues that it is God's justice which causes Him to throw multiple billions of people into a hell of Eternal Torture. If this were true, then it would be the strangest and cruellest type of justice one could ever imagine. What type of justice would it be for an all knowing, all loving God who knows the end from the beginning, and foreknew that man would sin, then proceed to create multiple billions of people in His own image, who would end up being punished by Him eternally for their sins committed in the few years of their temporary existence in this life?
Thankfully, the true God of the Bible is an absolutely just God, whose just plan will ensure that ultimately all people will be reconciled to Himself because of the loving sacrifice of Jesus Christ who died on the cross, not only for the sins of believers but also for the sins of the whole world.
