Why Chan Can’t Erase Hell

Why Chan Can’t Erase Hell

Chan and I agree wholeheartedly on a few things, and this is one of them – what God wants, God gets. In the opening pages of Chan’s “Erasing Hell”, he makes the point very clear: “God has the right to do WHATEVER [emphasis not mine] He pleases. If I’ve learned one thing from studying hell, it’s that last line. And whether or not you end up agreeing with everything I say about hell, you must agree with Psalm 115:3. Because at the end of the day, our feelings and wants and heartaches and desires are not ultimate – only God is ultimate. God tells us plainly that His ways and thoughts are infinitely higher than our (Isa. 55:9). Expect then, that Scripture will say things that don’t agree with your natural way of thinking.”
