Escaping hell: divine motivation and the problem of hell

  • ANDREI A. BUCKAREFF (a1) and ALLEN PLUG (a1)
Abstract

We argue that it is most rational for God, given God's character and policies, to adopt an open-door policy towards those in hell – making it possible for those in hell to escape. We argue that such a policy towards the residents of hell should issue from God's character and motivational states. In particular, God's parental love ought to motivate God to extend the provision for reconciliation with Him for an infinite amount of time.
