Comment: So if you...

In reply to comment: HA! That statement really (see in situ)

So if you...

...accept for a second the premise that God is indeed the definition of true Love, true goodness, true joy, true peace, etc., how could you expect that using freedom to depart from such true Love, goodness, etc. would result in an equally loving, good, joyful, peaceful situation?

Sure, people can choose to hang out in the 'outer darkness' if they really want to; but I don't think it will be that long for any soul to cry out for the return to Love, goodness, etc. When the defiant fist is finally lowered, and the clutching and grasping for selfish desires ceases, I believe all will return from that outer darkness, through the purifying fire, back to the unquenchable Love they were created for.
