  1. Is God most glorified in destroying people in hell? The reason why I ask this is because dont Calvinists think that God gets atleast equal glory through his justice as well as his love? But we have to ask, isn’t the devil trying to keep the most glory from God by blinding people from Christ’s glory? 2 Corinthian 4:4. If the glory of his justice is equal to the glory of his love, then Satan is helping to bring more glory to God through the Calvinist reasoning. Since most people are going to hell, it would stand to reason that God would predestine most to heaven so he would get the ultimate glory, if Calvinism is true. But that’s not the case. What do you think of this reasoning? I could be wrong, give me your ideas.
