  1. Wow, I’ve never thought of hell as a measure of God’s protection. Butler’s idea of hell leaves less room for criminalizing God. Just last week I received the following question:

    “If the sole purpose of all creation is to glorify God why are billions of souls burning forever in hell? Does God get pleasure from that?”

    The framework Butler offers is helpful in that it makes hell a means of God’s restoration of what is good. Of course he is not “happy” to see people rebel against him and be cast from his presence but he is glorified in the redemption he accomplishes (will accomplish).
