Why Hell is Good 

Think Hell is silly and just proves that God is vengeful and capricious? Think again:
Hell is simply the direct and necessary consequence of really free creatures refusing to choose God rather than themselves. They chose or preferred a world they thought they could make for themselves. Put in positive way, the doctrine of Hell is the guarantee of our individual and personal dignity. Without what it stands for–namely the basic seriousness and importance of our lives–we evaporate all concrete meaning from our existence.

Hell is necessary because people, exercising their free will, choose to turn away from God's love. I mean, those people have to go somewhere away from God, because if they had to spend eternity with someone that they turned away from, wouldn't that be miserable for all involved?
