self-imposed hell

Thursday May 7th, 1 John 4:  13We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God. 16And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. Wow, if “anyone” acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God??????  For some that should strike up the feeling that the Bible is way too inclusive.  The next thing you know, God will extend the time limit on that way beyond our comfort level.  What if heaven was not complete until the likes of Adolf Hitler finally succumbed to the love of God????  That would mean that God’s love can also be for us.  I believe people do go to hell.  I believe that God so loves humanity that we are even granted that freedom, we are just not left there.  We are not left alone in our own self-imposed hell in this world or in the next.  The seeking God of love will seek us out and love us until we turn, tears in our eyes, and respond to that love.
