Is Hell a Just Punishment?
Is hell a just punishment? I hear this question many times from skeptics, and that "No human being deserves such a punishment." How would I combat this claim?
The Church reminds us that hell is the “definitive self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed” (CCC 1033, emphasis added; see 1033-37).
For further perspective, see this previous response in which I explain that the fallen angels basically said, “To hell with heaven.”
