Some people recall being taught about the importance of “choice” or “free will” in Sunday school. This type of choice is the go too choice for some people to reconcile the problem of evil, in the face of God.
The general idea was that if someone “choses” something other than what is being taught, they should go someplace else where they are “free to choose” something different.
The “other” choice is usually something of lesser value. It may be a lesser kingdom, or worse, something like hellfire and damnation. In other cases, the lesser choice results in one eventually simply dissolving away or ceasing to exist.
