Is it really possible for nice people go to Hell?
To answer that question, we have to define the word “nice.”
Picture a spectrum of holiness. Abject evil to one extreme and pure holiness to the other. The Hitlers of the world would be closer to the pure evil side, while people like Mother Teresa would be to the other extreme. The rest of us probably fall somewhere in between and could rightly say, “I’m no saint, but I’m no mass murderer, either.”
With that worldview, our standard of “goodness” is reduced to shades of gray.
