Does Hell Exist?
CCC1035 The teaching of the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity. Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of unrepentant mortal sin descend into hell, where they suffer the punishments of hell, "eternal fire."
Who goes to Hell?
Persons who die in unrepentant mortal sin.
Such souls are devoid of sanctifying grace and charity - the love of God.
God sends nobody to hell, they go there of their own accord, to that which they have 'loved'.
Why did God create Hell?
God did NOT create Hell.
Hell is the result of sin and free will.
Self love v's God's love.
