Three Perspectives on Hell: Tim Keller, JI Packer, and Rob Bell

Tim Keller: Hell is “God banishing us to regions we have desperately tried to get into all our lives.” – “The Importance of Hell” http://www.redeemer.com/news_and_events/articles/the_importance_of_hell.html

JI Packer:Scripture sees hell as self-chosen . . . [H]ell appears as God’s gesture of respect for human choice. All receive what they actually chose, either to be with God forever, worshipping him, or without God forever, worshipping themselves.” (J.I.Packer, Concise Theology p.262-263.)

Rob Bell: “Love demands freedom. We are free to resist, reject, and rebel against God’s ways for us. We can have all the hell we want.” – Love Wins
