...all the details of the agonies of each person's hell that they will face in the process of repentance, before their old self crumbles away and the new self rises like a phoenix from the ashes. But let me ask you this:
If a person as horrible as Saul of Tarsus who was committing religious genocide against others could find redemption on the road to Damascus; if a person like the thief on the cross could find redemption after a life of crime; if Jeffrey Dahmer himself could have repented of his old self on this side of death and received new life, despite the horrors of his past -- why are all these reversals and reconciliations possible on this side of the journey and arbitrarily impossible and unthinkable on the other side of the journey?
But maybe if you don't believe in redemption through Christ on earth, then this is all nonsense to you, regardless. :) [Edit...sorry, I hadn't read your other comments above yet, which clarified that you do believe in that.]
