Embarrased of Hell

From Albert Mohler's blog:

In a apologetic gesture, the doctrine (of hell) is essentially lamented.

What does this say about God? What does this imply about God's truth? Can a truth clearly revealed in the Bible be anything less than good for us? The Bible presents the knowledge of hell, just as it presents the knowledge of sin and judgement: these are things we had better know. God reveals these things to us for our good and for our redemption. In this light, the knowledge of these things is grace to us. Apologizing for this doctrine is tantamount to impugning the character of God.

Do we believe that hell is a part of God's justice? If not, we have far greater theological problems than those localized to hell.
