Could it be that there is no hell?
Hell has always been out of character for a loving God.
Hell comes from dualistic thinking.
God is good and if we are good we go to heaven.
But if there is a heaven for good people there must be a hell for bad people.
This is simple dualistic thinking.
It also contains a temptation.
The temptation to threaten people with hell in order to get them to do what you want.
The old Machiavellian carrot and stick.
But God does not punish us.
God punishes no one.
So there can be no hell.
