Those who do not want to be saved, who fight being saved; who reject the Gift of the Saviour… they will typically suffer. In a sense they should suffer, because suffering is their only hope.
We, as individual people, shuld not make them suffer – they do that for themselves – but we should not unthinkingly or always strive actively to alleviate self-imposed suffering – that may well be to harm the other person: harm them soon and forever.
Alleviation of suffering is not an imperative – and we should never allow ourselves to be persuaded that it is.. In a sense they should suffer, because suffering is their only hope.
-thus Bruce Charlton
