QUOTATION: Christ's Vision of Hell

Peter Kreeft
Those who object to the dogma of Hell on the grounds that it would mean that man would suffer more than God, do not understand God “descended into Hell” on the Cross and in the Garden of Gethsemane more deeply than any man could. The vision in the garden that so terrified Christ that He sweated bloody tears and asked His Father whether it was possible to avoid this “cup” was probably a vision of Hell—a vision of all human souls suffering eternal torment after having rejected Christ’s love.
