I understand and accept the fact that those that go to hell are there because of their own karma.
But as has been written 'The abyss is filled with people who have good intentions.' Many of these same people would probably not be in hell had our humanity spent as much time preaching the virtues as they do the vices. So many of these well intended people would love to be truly good people but have never found the knowledge... due to karma yes.
However, the whole concept of Hell and the suffering that these poor well intended souls go through is not easy for me to accept, it just seems so unfair in many cases.
Personally, I wouldn't wish hell on my worst enemy, or the worst tyrant, for even a day.
If I was a Creator God, I would rather strip these poor souls naked, and surround them with 30 Masters of Compassion who can truly teach them the errors of their ways by tenderness, love, and kindness, by example. How many souls never even get a chance to feel these feelings this life time, karma aside.
Due to the love God has for us, we here on earth have been giving the free will to create illusions that have nothing to do with God should we choose. God would be a tyrant if he didn't give us this free will. So in this way, was the one who created this Universe with these painful hells a tyrant?
Many of the earlier Gnostic writings seem to elude to this. I know on a personal level the tyrants that they talk about are our own inner tyrants. I'm just really trying to come to terms with Hell. Its like the jail systems here on the planet, they only make inmates fall deeper into sin in most cases, but we as a humanity could make so many better ways to heal and help those that are suffering.
