Here’s an argument proposed by David Bently Hart against eternal rejection of God (hell)
1. Our free actions are based on our desires.
2. All desires are rooted in goodness ultimately. It is the distortion of goodness that leads to sin. No one is evil for the sake of being evil. Every evil act is based on a misunderstanding of goodness (for example premarital sex is a misunderstanding of the goodness intended for marital sex)
3. God is the source of all goodness.
4. Therefore, all desires are rooted in God whether knowingly or unknowingly.
5. Therefore, once all ignorance is erased, one cannot freely reject God for eternity, as there would be no motive. All motives have to be grounded in God’s goodness.
6. Therefore, eternal rejection of God is incoherent.
For those who want more clarification, here is a video of him explaining the argument. Skip to 38:41 for the relevant portion, which ends around 48:56
Is this a good argument? Is there an adequate rebuttal?
