The End of the Wicked Contemplated by the Righteous
What happens to the finally impenitent in hell for all eternity? What will the response be by loving Christians toward those enduring the eternal punishment? How can there be happiness in heaven when there is so much sadness in hell?
These are just a few of the perennial questions Jonathan Edwards addresses in his other famous sermon on hell. Discover what it means to profess that Christians worship a holy God and how God must punish sin in this small work on a difficult but vitally important subject. For anyone questioning how a loving God can punish sinners, here is the classic defense of the traditional position on hell, suffering, punishment, and divine justice.
Whether you agree with Edwards’ conclusions or not, this is your starting point for understanding the traditional Protestant view of eternal conscious punishment in hell.
