God, being good, would not punish a sinner with a punishment beyond what he deserved; and I suggest that, despite majority Christian tradition, literally everlasting pain would be a punishment beyond the deserts of any human who has sinned for a finite time on earth. To punish a man with such punishment would be horribly vindictive, and a good God would not do that.
Richard Swinburne, Emeritus Professor of Philosophical Theology at Oxford and foremost Christian philosopher living today
Swinburne is right, certainly right, as right as the one who says 2+2=4. And if we don’t see that, then we aren’t thinking well.
