The most defensible position on the doctrine of hell, these days, includes the notion that God doesn't SEND people there so much as they choose to go and to stay. This, while attempting to avoid the problem of an overly malicious God, creates a problem of potential incredulity. Can we fathom someone CHOOSING to stay in hell? Can we fathom someone, even if they were given a chance at a new beginning, turning it down in favor of utter filth and unhappiness?
Then I watched the show Hoarders and decided it is fathomable.
