Good for him... (and probably for many evangelicals.)
I am not knowledgeable enough to speak about the theological implications of what he says or believes in fuller detail (haven't read any books of his or about him), but I personally believe that there is a need to maintain belief in the existence and "threat" of hell, however dichotomous to the all-loving God it might seem. At least for me personally, there is a need to maintain this. (And if for me personally, I imagine there to be a lot of other people for whom the belief "personally" should be held. I am not Orthodox of course, so I can't speak to just myself only and anticipate that all others will be saved, a concept I've read elsewhere on these forums.)
Why the need? Because I am a lazy, self-absorbed, rather narcissistic person. (I apologize if anything in that sentence is grammatically incorrect.) That is me most of the time. When I said above that I am "not knowledgeable enough", it means in large part that I am very simple-minded, and cannot reach to the heights of contemplation to see things from a pure mind-frame of selfless, disinterested love that only sees the good in other people and none of the bad *without* translating that 'only seeing the good' to myself. That might be like 'black and white' thinking that gets a lot of flack from intellectual people, and from myself too sometimes (when it is other people doing that sort of thinking, less so when yours truly, unfortunately.) Anyhow, for the simpler-minded folk (not the general type on this Internet forum it seems) how is one to get the motivation to "strive" for the Kingdom - both in oneself and in others, emanating out - if not, in part, by drawing on the ancient and long-enduring dichotomy between salvation and damnation, Christ and Satan, heaven and hell? Orthodox prayers (that I love to read) often contain lots of "fear" of condemnation in death and begging for mercy/saving from the Lord.
I apologize, too, if my thoughts here are not suitable to what the quotation lends toward in thread discussion. A thought of mine is that if "hell" (eternal damnation even) had a place in preaching and exhortation by great Orthodox Fathers and ascetics through most or all centuries down from the 1st until perhaps the middle of the 20th century, why is it now taken for granted that - apparently - the Orthodox Christian ethos has moved away from the dichotomy of 'heaven and hell', so much so that some will lampoon conservative evangelicals (or 'fundamentalist' Orthodox, or Roman Catholics) who presume to preach [the existence of] hell and the fear of such? (I know that what can certainly be lampooned is the "once saved always saved" concept that many evangelicals seem to have - confess Christ one and need no fear of hell evermore, but aside from that, I'm thinking of a more literal implication of the "Behold the Bridegroom" hymn.)
