Freedom, damnation, and the power to sin with impunity

Religious Studies 37 (4):417-434 (2001)
Abstract
I argue that the idea of a freely embraced eternal destiny in hell is deeply incoherent and implies, quite apart from its incoherence, that we are free both to sin with impunity and to defeat God's justice forever.
