Many of the more careless sort, using the loving kindness of God to increase the magnitude of their sins and the excess of their disregard, speak in this way, saying: There is no hell, no future punishment. God forgives all our sins.
I have always held that it would be a miserable universe without eternal punishment. Every act, good or evil, must carry its consequences. and the fact that our punishment must go on forever seems to me a proof of the everlasting love of God. For an evil deed to go unpunished would be to destroy the moral order of the universe. … Without eternal punishment we should have no touch with God, the world would be Godless, God-forsaken.
