Hi all. My husband (a Christian) and I (a Buddhist) were talking the other night about the doctrine of eternal hell. (We Buddhists have hell, but it isn't eternal, among other things.) I'm curious as to how people work with the belief/teaching of eternal hell if that is present in your religious tradition. How do you get comfortable with the idea that your faith teaches that some people are going to hell for eternity? Does that sit well with you? Will you be comfortable going to heaven knowing that others will be in hell? I know this is a potentially hot-button topic, and I hope very much that everyone will try to stay civil. It's a genuine inquiry, NOT a condemnation of anyone's belief system. Thanks so much for your responses.
