According to Calvinists, hell is part of God’s design. In fact, the doctrine of hell has recently been defended quite vigorously by Calvinists. It reminds us that there is a deep sense of self-abandonment that operates in Calvinist theology. It is a conviction which says that it is right that God should determine the fate of every human being. ‘God and hell’ asks important questions: isn’t God love? Why doesn’t God save everyone? Why doesn’t he covenant with the entire human race, predestining everyone to eternal salvation? Why didn’t God stop the fall of Adam and Eve from occurring? If God is love, how can he reprobate some to eternal damnation?
