Piekło nie jest przegraną Boga. Stanowi natomiast dowód, że Bóg jest nieskończoną miłością, która pragnie każdemu stworzeniu zapewnić dobry los, napełnić go pełnią szczęścia zgodnie z jego naturą oraz że wolne stworzenia są przez Boga kochane właśnie jako wolne. Trzeba znać miłość Boga, aby zrozumieć, co Kościół katolicki ma do powiedzenia na temat piekła.


Sketch to the theological approach of hell. About the darkness of hell in the “light” of personalism


Hell is an invitation from the evil one to eternal solitude: without love, without community and happiness, because to be in hell is to be without God. God invites us to something different (cf. Ps 68: 6-7). He himself is preparing a home for man and makes for him a “feast of rich food” (Isaiah 25: 6). Man should not thinks about how to avoid hell in eternity, but should thinks how to avoid the disastrous influence of Satan and his demons in an earthly perspective. The house of the creatures is their Creator, “our citizenship is in heaven” (Phil. 3: 20). The Father is waiting for us. Because Satan and his angels have definitively and freely refused God’s love to them, they are homeless and that will never change (cf. Jn 8, 44). There is hell, because God truly loves. There is hell, because divine love can be refused by the free creatures. There is not hell, where God is, where His glory is present. If you know God’s love then it is possible to know what the Catholic Church says about hell. The Church proclaims “how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him” (Acts 10: 38).
