Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness (goodness) is intended to lead you to repentance? Romans 2:4
Although it is undeniable that Jesus and the later New Testament authors taught about a literal hell, Paul says in Romans that it is the Goodness of God that leads people to repentance.
The world needs to see the Father’s goodness lived out through our lives for folks to come to repentance. Sure we can talk about the fate of those who do not believe in the Son (John 3:36), but it is us showing God’s goodness that inches them towards the face of God.
