A friend made the comment today that it does not quite seem fair that we are condemned to Hell or be taken to Heaven for eternity when we die. My friend is a Christian but he said consigning a person to either for eternity does not seem fair.

My response was that we do not understand eternity, nor are we truly capable of understanding it. We look at eternity as a period of time but eternity is the absence of time. Time is for us, God does not dwell in time and, after we die, neither do we.

The other thought is that God does not condemn us to Hell. We make the choice during our lives and God simply honors our choice. We decide where we want to spend eternity. God does and has done everything to show and convince us to accept Christ. It is our choice to do so.
