From a chapter on hell, C.S. Lewis in The Problem of Pain concludes:
The doors of hell are locked on the inside. …They enjoy forever the horrible freedom they have demanded, and are therefore self-enslaved: just as the blessed, forever submitting to obedience, become through all eternity more and more free.
In the long run the answer to all those who object to the doctrine of hell, is itself a question: ‘What are you asking God to do?’ To wipe out their past sins and, at all costs, to give them a fresh start, smoothing every difficulty and offering every miraculous help? But He has done so, on Calvary. To forgive them? They will not be forgiven [because they choose not to be]. To leave them alone? Alas, I am afraid that is what He does.
How ironic! Those that demand freedom, complete and total freedom from obedience and any sense of authority, end up the most un-free of all.
