It may seem (to a traditionalist Christian) that Romantic Christianity is a soft-centred tissue of self-gratifying wishful thinking - an excuse to do whatever we happen to want to do, and pretend it is Christian.
But this is only the case if Romaticism is temporarily adopted, and is not followed-through. If Romanticism is adopted as a genuine principle, it has, on the one hand, the potential to be self-correcting. And on the other hand it has some tough and perhaps startling implications for the question of damnation.
The Romantic idea includes such aspects that Imagination may be a kind of knowledge, that intuition is the bottom-line, and that therefore each person must-and will make a personal and subjective evaluation and decision on all major issues.
But this subjective decision is also objective: that is, it relates to reality.
The implication is that the modern person has, in actual practice, in real life, and inevitably, made a subjective decision about major issues that is having and will have objective consequences.
Given what modern people assert about moral issues, and the nature of reality - for example modern mainstream sexual ethics, and the modern idea that this world is meaningless and purposeless, or the idea that morality is reducible to feelings - we need to take seriously that such assertions are genuine expressions of what many/ most modern people Really Think.
And if this is the case, then it seems probable that most people have already damned themselves, and have chosen not only to reject Heaven but actively to embrace Hell.
It has happened. Of course, this can be repented, then changed, at any moment - But that is exactly the current state of things.
Thus - Romantic Christianity is tough in a very individual and personal way; because we can no longer plead that we didn't know the truth, that we were misled by the lies of the mass media and bureaucracy - we cannot argue that we 'couldn't help it' and are not responsible for our personal judgements.
But We Are Responsible - here-and-now people have made up their minds and they are absolutely responsible for their decisions about fundamental matters.
Now there are No Excuses.
