When we look around and see so much evil, it is hard to think that it could be worse. The Apostle Paul tells us that sin is being restrained at this time. There will come a time when sin will not be restrained…can you imagine? I would not want to be around at that time.
2Thess2.6 And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.
This is also how it will be in Hell. Everyone in Hell will be separated from God therefore there will be no good in anyone. When a person chooses against God, God says okay you can be without me. Now if you were there alone you might imagine yourself doing okay. But, when you are accompanied by everyone else that wants their own way and there is nothing there to restrain sin, it will then be a living Hell.
