God’s Greater Love


How can a loving God send anyone to Hell?

Surely you’ve heard the question. Your answer?


  • Good question!
  • That’s not the way it works
  • If everybody winds up in Heaven what’s the point?

In his book on Heaven, Randy Alcorn offers a memorable response:

“He so much wants us not to go to Hell that he paid a horrible price on the cross so that we wouldn’t have to.”

John 3:16 (NIV)
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

  1. I think people choose hell; or rather, they choose a path that would make Heaven into hell.

    Like with unforgiveness…forgiving is not a box we have to check to get past St. Peter, it’s like having lungs…with unforgiveness in our hearts, Heaven would suffocate us.

  2. Shirlee Abbott says:

    Hmmm, interesting as always, Andrew: unforgiveness is spiritual asthma for the heavenly soul.
