8 John Hick was a British philosopher who developed his own version of the Irenaean theodicy.

9 He argues that the only relationship worth having is one that is freely chosen. This means that real consequences have to be available. If a person cannot be hurt, then others are not free to hurt them. Inversely, if everything in the world is perfect, then I cannot choose to help you.

10 Here Hick departs from Irenaeus. While they both believe that this growing will continue into the next life, Irenaeus is in no doubt that some will suffer in damnation and hell whereas Hick believes that eventually everyone will enter heaven, hence universal salvation.
