The concept of hell appears in numerous religions and mythologies. According to religious beliefs, hell is a place of horror, pain, suffering, and torment meant to punish those who sin or rebel against the laws laid down by God.
Christianity explains hell as a state in which souls of the damned suffer eternally for their sins. It is also considered a place of separation from God.
“They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might.”
2 Thessalonians 1:9
