Yes, I have known about this for about 40 years. The book that tells the story of a bus ride, between Heaven and Hell, is called The Great Divorce, by C.S. Lewis. This is where I read him discussing this premise.
Actually, as a Catholic, then as a Lutheran, I came to picture hell, as us being chained to the decay of this world, without God. Our Spirits, locked in our bodies, dependent on the laws of nature, which would be for us to decay and turn to dust, eventually. That was my version of where "'the worms that eat them do not die, and the fire is not quenched.' Mark 9:48. And, yes, I believed it was us who chose to go to hell, by refusing to accept Jesus, not God sending us to hell. I was taught that, by my teachers, in Catholic school, as time went by, and God was viewed more as a loving God, than a vengeful one. At least this thought acknowledged that Jesus died to save all mankind.
But, that changed on Pentecost of this year, when I accepted Christian UR.
In my journey to UR, I did my own scripture study, with the assistance of a Christian UR friend, and I came to see just how loving our God truly is. As much as I believed that God and love were interchangeable before, I came to believe this, even more.
There is a Christian song, called, HOW CAN YOU SAY NO TO THIS MAN? I believe, when we are at the judgement, and those who did not believe in Jesus, see the God, the father, as He describes himself in the story of the prodigal son, they will not be able to say no to Him.
Moderators, please give me your input here, as well as my fellow seekers, but, perhaps, that is one of the differences between men and angels.......angels, or Lucifer, are able to say 'no', to God, but, because we are created in God's image and likeness, and we were created to be His children, there is this intrinsic relationship, that we will know the 3 persons of the Trinity, when we see our God, without 'the glass, darkly', (1 Corinthians 13:12) and respond to the Love of God.
