There is a reason why so many don't want to believe in HELL. Its offense to believe in it.
In the hands of Pastor Keller, the sin of “living life for yourself” becomes even more of an offense than the characteristic sin of the damned that Christ portrays it as:
For Keller, Hell is a sentence to self: self-absorption, self-direction, self-justification, self-pity, self-centeredness for all eternity. Hell is simply God giving man over to his selfishness confirmed in perpetuity: the selfish man is left to his ego, his pride, his vanity. God no longer pursues or calls the narcissist back from his black hole of ego, but rather abandons him to himself.
Our view of Hell reflects our understanding of sin and Keller makes this point when he writes, “The idea of hell is implausible to people because they see it as unfair that infinite punishment would be meted out for comparably minor, finite false steps (like not embracing Christianity.) Also, almost no one knows anyone (including themselves) that seem to be bad enough to merit hell.”
