It's an amazing thing that our Creator does. He lets us choose to be apart from Him for all of eternity. He actually gives us what we want rather than forcing His will on us. It's the kind of tolerance that atheists rave about.
“Go to hell; see if I care.”
Well, not exactly. Jesus has done everything possible to make sure you don't have to endure eternity without Him. In fact, if you choose to go to hell, you're going to have to step over Jesus' dead body in order to get there.
We are profoundly spiritual beings. We are created to be in a healed and forgiven relationship with our Creator, made in His image, made to love Him and to be loved by Him. We are made to spend eternity in His presence, but some simply don't want that. They don't want anything to do with Jesus now or ever. They see Him as a monster.
Atheists have been given the right to choose, and they'll be damned if they're going to miss the opportunity to reject the God they don't believe in.
They take their right to choose to do wrong.
They rage at His justice for punishing sin and evil and
They rage at the injustice of His Grace which forgives sinners of their evil.
It really does take a fool to reject one's Creator in order to rage at the freedom He gives to live apart from Him for eternity.
