"The existence of hell brings home to us with terrifying clarity the fact that God is just, and that His justice is not to be separated from His mercy.  We must stress with special emphasis, however, that hell is not a blind destiny into which the sinner plunges unawares, but is his self-chosen and fully deserved portion."
