We all like to think we are good and deserve a happy ending. As N.T. Wright says, “We want to hear a nice story about God throwing the party open to everyone. We want (as people now fashionable say) to be ‘inclusive’, to let everyone in. We don’t want to know about judgment on the wicked, or demanding standards of holiness, or about weeping and gnashing of teeth.” But, like it or not, that is exactly what we do hear in the Bible.
