What Glorantha: Intro p47 says is that because of the Great Error, the Malkioni during the age of the Fourth Action (Duplication) could only interpret the oncoming Fifth Action as Destruction. Malkion did not replace it with Sacrifice, he showed everybody what its real meaning was.

Hell is the world of the Fifth Action. The Plane of Joy has no corresponding Action.
