Nothing But Proportion

“We often talk as though Hell were nothing but a gigantic miscarriage of justice, the end result of God somehow losing all sense of proportion. We want to think of the Last Judgment as requiring an impressive explanation and defense because we think of it as that day at the end of the world when God loses His temper. And would He apologize for that at some point and let everybody into Heaven? But actually the doctrine of Hell is the doctrine of nothing but justice. It is nothing but due proportion. That’s why we really don’t like it” (Mere Fundamentalism, pp. 56-57).
