Free Will and the Doctrine of Hell

The only will in the universe that is truly free is God’s will. And even His will is not totally free. It’s gloriously bound by His moral perfections. It is bound by His love, His goodness and mercy. According to the doctrine of hell, His perfections are not constant. They are not infinite, eternal and unchangeable as our confessions and catechisms suggest. If the doctrine of eternal torment is true, His love eventually turns to hate. Most in this life, who were supposedly once the objects of His love and goodness, eventually go to the place of suffering where they will forever be the objects of His wrath and fiery rage.
