(I am inspired to re-work and re-post this piece on hell based off of two things I have seen in the past 24 hours. The first was this picture on Drudge:
This picture IMMEDIATELY reminded me of this detail image from a fresco depicting hell by Fra Angelico, which inspired the original writing of this piece:
Then, I saw Fr. Z blockquote and link to a PJMEDIA piece by J. Christian Adams who was inside the Senate when the Kavanaugh vote took place, describing the demonic noises that the “protesters” were making:
I was in the Senate gallery this afternoon when Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed. You would have thought I was at an exorcism in an insane asylum.
Perhaps you were watching on television and heard the disruptions, though you certainly didn’t see them. The attenuated audio probably didn’t catch the frightening, incoherent shrieking – including the lingering screaming and howling as they were being dragged down the hallways outside the gallery…
…I have visited hospitals for the seriously mentally ill, and the shrieks from this woman were as odd and unearthly as anything I ever heard inside a mental hospital. They echoed off the halls and ceilings outside the gallery in decreasing but astonishing amplitude.
Then the roll was called, and it sounded like the gates of hell opened up.
Nearly a dozen women erupted in unison, shouting, howling, screaming, in an unrecognizable venomous wail. They wouldn’t stop. There was fury, rage, hate, poison in the noise.
It wasn’t prose. It wasn’t song. It was a swarming, shrill, swirling noise.
I leaned over to someone and whispered, “Pay attention, that’s what the Left sounds like.”
Nothing they were yelling and howling could be heard. It was the sound of all of them, in discordant, rage-fueled, wild fury, that was so unearthly. I have never heard a sound like it before.
Read the piece below on hell and what it is really like (inasmuch as we can grasp it), and then re-read the testimony above. Folks, none of these people are possessed. They are in full control of their faculties. Just as every soul in hell is in full control of their faculties. No one in hell is possessed. We are getting to see, here on earth, before our eyes, a tiny, tiny glimpse of what a human being looks like when they descend into hell. Loveless, incoherent rage. No charity, no relationship, no nothing. Just visceral, ceaseless, narcissistic rage.
Don’t ever, ever joke or permit others to joke about going to hell. Ever.)
I have written on this somewhat briefly before, but so many people have told me how powerful, terrifying and spiritually profitable this information was, that I am now doing a full, dedicated post on the subject of hell and what it is like.
Pretty much everyone in post-Christian post-western culture today knows someone or is a close relative of someone who is divorced and “remarried”, someone who is shacking up and fornicating, someone who is just simply fornicating, aka “hooking up”, even someone who is a sodomite or other form of aberrosexual. And sadly, everyone knows someone who is married and contracepts – because EVERYONE on a statistical basis contracepts today. And contraception, like all of the other sins against the Sixth Commandment above, is a mortal sin.
Add to this the near-total disintegration of and mass apostasy from The Church, with Antipope Bergoglio now executing what he believes to be the coup de grace, and people commit these sins with total impunity. There isn’t even the slightest hesitation or moral qualm about any of these sins. In fact, how many Novus Ordo “c”atholics and Prostestants are right now saying, “Boy, those Super-dox rigorist Trad Catholics sure are getting a wake-up call now, huh? The reason they are all so angry is because they can’t deal with the fact that their bullshit position on contraception, homosexuality and divorce has been wrong all along… because Fraaaaaaaancis.”
Oh yeah. WE KNOW WHAT YOU’RE THINKING.
AND WE DON’T CARE.
We know what the truth is. We’re not backing off. And we aren’t going anywhere. In fact, it is just the opposite.
Anyway… If one were to ask me what I think the single worst thing Antipope Bergoglio has said or done in this ongoing antipapacy, I would say without hesitation that it is his denial of the existence of hell or damnation. He first did this in an interview with the Italian atheist and Freemason newspaper magnate, Eugenio Scalfari, in March of ARSH 2015.
What happens to that lifeless soul? Will it be punished? How?
Francis’ answer is very clear: there is no punishment, but the annihilation of that soul. All the others will participate in the bliss of living in the presence of the Father. The annihilated souls will not be part of that banquet; with the death of the body their journey is ended and this is the basis for the missionary work in the Church: to save the lost souls.
Antipope Bergoglio then reiterated this in his satanic manifesto, Amoris Laetitia, which was so-named in Latin, a language which Bergoglio and his toadies despise and refuse to use EXCEPT in the naming of this foul document because the most accurate and learned translation of “Amoris Laetitia” is “The Exuberance of Sodomy”. My post on that including a letter from a professional Latinist HERE. The name of that document is 100% intentional, folks. Think how evil these foul creatures have to be to not only falsely promulgate such a satanic document in the name of Peter – but to get a good, hearty laugh out of naming it, “The Exuberance of Sodomy”. May God have mercy on them, and us.
Anyway, in Amoris Laetitia/Exuberance of Sodomy, Antipope Bergoglio and his ghostwriter Tucho “Heal Me With Your Mouth: The Art of Kissing” Fernandez, wrote:
“No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!”
(Amoris Laetitia, n. 297).
This is yet another winking denial of the existence of hell by these fiends. Folks, the denial of hell and its eternal torments is the most transcendently and thoroughly poisonous lie in the universe. One need not even believe in the heresy of universalism, that is to say that ALL people are eventually saved and achieve the beatific vision. One need not go even that far. Bergoglio spews the lie of soul annihilation – that is to say that human beings are simply snuffed out of existence by God upon their death if they don’t achieve the beatific vision. This filthy lie has a certain attraction to everyone, even the faithful. Isn’t there a certain bewitching comfort that comes from the idea that “if I’m wrong about this Christianity stuff, the worst that will happen to me will be that I simply cease to be, that I will die and then POOF! ‘Lights out’.” Who among us will not confess to, in periods of particular suffering in our lives, wistfully longing for an “unending dreamless sleep”?
Who among us has NOT done everything we could to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ precisely because in the backs of our minds, we subconsciously tell ourselves that the people around us who are outside the Church, or living lives of unrepentant mortal sin, will be merely “snuffed out”, instead of facing manfully the truth that human beings who die outside the Church, and/or in unrepentant mortal sin will spend all eternity in hell, tormented in an unceasing and ever-increasing agony? How often do we fail our fellow man in charity, instead choosing charity’s antipode, indifference, borne precisely from our own deep-seated concession and desire for the lie of soul annihilation to be true? No, the siren’s song of nihilism, with Antipope Bergoglio, probable False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, as its loudest-ever “chanteuse”, is bewitching countless human beings of every stripe. Catholics cite Bergoglio as reason to apostatize. Protestants are ratified in their heresy and schism. Pagans are ratified in their denial of Christ. Atheists are ratified in their atheism. By a filthy man who dares to call himself Peter.
Do you understand why Antipope Bergoglio calls proselytizing “solemn nonsense”? Do you understand why Bergoglio is so desperate to ingratiate himself to every false religion and to atheists and set up a new, OneWorldReligion with himself at its head? It is because, as I have been saying from literally the FIRST DAY of his usurpatious antipapcy, HE DOESN’T BELIEVE IN ANY OF IT, which includes at the top of that list, the existence of hell. If there is no hell, then NOTHING MATTERS, folks. NOTHING. Christ doesn’t matter. The Church doesn’t matter. Sin doesn’t matter. Law doesn’t matter. All that matters is the earthly acquisition of personal power, glory and fame, and sensual pleasures. Antipope Bergoglio, this despicable power-mad attention whore, is driven utterly by his diabolically narcissistic appetite for his own power, fame and glory, and for the earthly pleasures which he so enjoys, because to him, that’s ALL THERE IS, and thus that’s ALL THAT MATTERS.
What Hell Is Like
Now for the truly useful and spiritually profitable information. If you have ever struggled to answer or explain to someone why it is that we should not sin, why it matters whether or not person A is having sex with person B, listen up, because this is life-changing information – information that could make the difference for you or someone you love between eternal bliss or eternal agony and torment.
The first reason we should not sin is because our sins offend God. And because God loves us infinitely, it is perhaps more profitable to think of our offending God more as breaking His Heart. Just as a parent who has a child that does drugs has their heart broken by that child’s actions that hurt himself, God, because His love for us is infinite and perfect, and because He is Perfect Good, is infinitely offended, or we could say has His Heart infinitely broken, by even the smallest of our sins. If you would like to read more about Fear of The Lord, might I suggest my ambiguously-titled essay, “THE ONE ABOUT… FEAR OF THE LORD.”
As with heaven, the modern conception of hell is extremely childish and inadequate. Hell is not MERELY a hot place with fire and demons poking you with sticks. These conceptions of the torment and agony of hell are as woefully inadequate as the image of heaven as a very boring place with blue, sunny sky above with beatified souls reposing on white fluffy clouds, dreamily stroking harps whilst angels, depicted as pudgy, bewinged babies, flit about like agreeable, powder-scented houseflies.
I’m sorry, but what, exactly is so attractive about that ridiculous and banal image of heaven? And what is so awful about that image of hell? Yeah, it sounds unpleasant, but it doesn’t exactly strike terror in one’s heart – especially not terror at levels sufficiently high enough to stop robust, well-formed lads and lasses in the flower of youth (or morbidly obese, arthritic octogenarians, for that matter) from fornicating with each other.
Let me describe to you what hell is like for fornicators. I use fornicators as our first example because there are just so darn many. Any sex outside of valid marriage is fornication, folks. No matter how much the parties in question might “love each other”. Post-western, post-Christian culture is AWASH in fornication.
In hell, we will be in close “proximity” to those people also in hell that we cooperated or engaged in sin with. I suspect this would be because the damned are obsessed and consumed with hatred and rage, and thus damned humans themselves will gravitate towards those that they personally sinned with. Obviously, fornicators will be in immediate proximity to each other. And so, what hell will entail will be human souls raging at each other, screaming the most vile insults, profanities, and perhaps even physical attacks (as depicted by Fra Angelico above) after the General Resurrection when ALL SOULS will be reunited to their bodies. Why? Because the partner in fornication was a full cooperator in the mortal sin that presumably resulted in the eternal damnation, and thus the fornicators will hate and blame each other for their own damnation.
I received an email from a woman not long after I first wrote about this. She had a boyfriend, as most gals today do at some point. They were very average American 20-somethings. They were in a steady relationship, lived in separate houses, but fornicated regularly. They were attracted to each other, loved each other, got along well and there was no history of fighting, and certainly no abuse. The woman told me in this email that she started exploring religion, reading up, and settled into serious study of Catholicism and Catholic moral teaching. Obviously, her fornication with her boyfriend began to nag at her conscience until she finally acknowledged that she had to stop having sex outside of marriage.
The day arrived when she finally had to talk to her boyfriend, explain what she had learned, and tell him that it was very important that they stop having sex. She did not want to end the relationship – just stop having sex until marriage.
Up until that point, their relationship had been smooth with no major fights – they got on very well, and the boyfriend treated her well. She fully expected that they were on the path to marriage. There was never even the slightest hint of abuse or disrespect in the modern sense (I qualify that because the act of fornication itself is a sign of massive disrespect, but you know what I’m trying to convey).
The last words she heard her boyfriend say to her were bellowed at her in a screaming rage as she quickly left his house in fear, after explaining to him that the Church teaches that fornication is a mortal sin and that it was important to stop having sex until they were married: “YOU F***ING C***! YOU F***ING C***!”
This sort of rage – seemingly out of the blue and unthinkable to her just a few minutes before it happened – was a foretaste of hell. It was a foretaste of the deep, raging hatred that humans who cooperate and enable sin with others feel, and if they don’t repent and die in their sin, will spend all eternity drowning in. And folks, no human being will take hell “stoically”. Going and sitting alone in a corner and “not participating” will NOT be an option. All of us who end up damned will rage eternally. We will rage at God, we will rage at the angels and saints in heaven, we will rage at all of the other humans in hell, and we will rage at the demons. The other humans in hell and all of the demons will spend eternity raging right back at us.
(I write the previous three sentences in the FIRST person plural intentionally, because we all need to ponder OURSELVES in hell, not just others.)
This is what fornicators, sodomites, heck EVERYBODY MUST be told: If you do not stop this, you will spend eternity RAGING at this person that you claim to love. And they will spend eternity RAGING at you.
I am blessed to have observed/experienced demoniacal, hellish human rage like this more than once in my life. I have seen the faces of people I love twist and contort into a countenance still recognizable, but yet completely “other”. I have seen eyes blazing with rage and existential hatred of me, with what can only be described as the fire of hell behind them. I have seen the lips curl back, exposing the teeth as fangs. I have been raged at by people I love for merely existing, and I thank God for it because it was the gift of experiencing a foretaste of hell. And it was something much better than a vision – because it was real. It is a spiritual insight of the highest and gravest importance.
If you have never experienced this, pray God you never do, and thank God that you can be aware of it from my third-party description. And pray God that you be saved from hell, because hell will be an unending, ever-increasing orgy of rage. And what is perhaps most terrifying about this is that those who are damned will be exactly the same species of rage monster that others are to them. As terrifying as it is to think of someone you love raging at you for all eternity, what is even worse is the thought of you yourself raging forever at the people you “love”. Do you love your kids? Well, if you don’t make it to heaven, you will spend eternity hating your kids. And make no mistake, the damned rage at EVERYONE, whether they are in hell with them, or in heaven. There are no alliances, no friendships, no family, no solidarity. Only the total isolation of perfect, loveless narcissism. Everyone is alone in the way that the Diabolical Narcissists among us are alone. They are islands, utterly cut-off from others by their freely chosen self-purgation of all love.
So even if you end up damned, but everyone you have ever loved makes it to heaven, because you are damned and they are not, you will hate them for their beatitude. You will spend eternity in hell looking up towards the heaven which you will never, ever see, and cursing all those in it. And the people you “loved” most in the world, will be the people that you hate most when you are in hell. If they are in hell with you, you will blame them for your damnation. If they are in heaven, you will hate them for their beatitude (remember the demonic emotional palate: anger, hated, ENVY and fear), and for not doing more in life to prevent your own damnation.
Let me say that again, because it is extremely important: the people you “loved” most in the world, will be the people that you hate most when you are in hell. We should all be motivated by this.
-Fornicators in hell will hate their sex partners.
-Parents in hell will hate their children.
-Children in hell will hate their parents.
-Friends in hell will hate their friends.
-Priests in hell will hate their flock.
-Catholics in hell will hate their priests, bishops and popes.
-Spouses in hell will hate their spouse.
-Everyone in hell will hate God.
An Urgent Warning to Those Who Are Divorced and “Remarried”
Right now the question of “marriages” after one or both spouses has been previously civilly divorced is at the top of the headlines due to the satanic words and deeds of the blaspheming heretic Antipope Bergoglio, who is probably the counter-analogue to John the Baptist, that is, the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist. John the Baptist, as the Forerunner of The Christ, had as his ministry the calling of people to repentance, the “making straight the crooked paths”, and John the Baptist was ultimately beheaded for defending the sanctity of marriage by condemning the false marriage of King Herod Antipas to Herodias. Antipope Bergoglio being a near-perfect opposite of John the Baptist is calling people to remain in sin and to hate The Law, is sowing chaos on a daily basis, and his central point of attack is marriage and the family.
If you are in a so-called “second marriage” of any stripe, and you want some genuinely helpful and spiritually profitable information, put out the cat and read on:
The Church has taught that in circumstances in which people are in “marriages” when one or both spouses have their true spouse still living, that the couple in question MUST MUST MUST stop having sex at a bare minimum. You CANNOT have sex with someone who is not your spouse. You cannot have more than ONE living spouse – that is, your first spouse. Why? Because marriage is INDISSOLUBLE. Period. These are the plain, clear words of Jesus Christ Himself. We all know them: Those whom God has joined together, let no man put asunder. He who puts away his wife and marries another commits adultery. It does not get any clearer than that.
You can’t have sex with your “second spouse” because YOU ARE NOT MARRIED TO THEM.
I don’t care what the civil law says. I don’t care that you will have to pay half of your joint estate and monthly support if you “divorce”. It is also “legal” to murder children in utero. What is your point? It is The Divine and Natural Law that is the question – heaven or hell. I don’t give a CRAP what our Freemasonic post-Christian culture says is “law” is on this matter. The question is utterly moot. If you have sex with someone who is not your spouse, you are fornicating at minimum, and committing adultery if either of you has already been married to someone else. You HAVE TO STOP HAVING SEX AT MINIMUM. What is beyond the “at minimum”? Separation. Aping marriage is scandalous.
Now, let’s think about what we have just learned about hell. You say, “No way! There’s no way I’m going to stop having sex with my “spouse”! We love each other! There is no way you or anyone else are going to separate us!”
Listen up: I believe that you “love” your “spouse”. If you don’t stop having sex, and you both die unrepentant of your adulterous fornication, you will spend all of eternity in hell, in proximity to each other, hating and raging at each other for contributing to each others’ damnation, FOR ALL ETERNITY. Think about that. Now, tell me again that you “love” your “spouse”, but are unwilling to stop having sex. If you understand the plain English of what I have just told you your eternal fate will be, and you still refuse to stop having sex for however many years remain for you on this earth, well, my hands are clean of your blood.
THIS is what every Catholic priest on this planet should be bellowing from the pulpit, from the top – Pope Benedict XVI – all the way down to the lowest, wettest-behind-the-ears parish priest. This is what neighbors, friends and family members should be explaining to those around them. But do we? No. Because we are bad people, more concerned about earthly human respect than whether or not other human beings spend eternity in hell, separated from God, and raging and being raged at by the very people that they claim to “love”. Because it is just so much easier to believe wretched Antipope Bergoglio’s lies about soul annihilation, isn’t it?
Why Does God Permit Such A Horrible Eternal Fate?
The thing to remember about the torments of hell is that they are permitted by God as a MERCY. Yes, you read that right. Those humans who are damned will be tormented not only by demons, but also by other people in hell, most especially those wretched souls that were known to them and complicit in their sins in life, as a MERCIFUL DISTRACTION from the loss of God for all eternity. If God truly did NOT love, or ceased to love, every one of His creations, including all of the demons and all men who are damned, He would consign the damned to an eternity of silent solitude in which the full horror of the eternal loss of God Himself would be at the fore of their consciousness with no rest and no distraction. Instead, in His Mercy, which extends even to the damned, He permits torment in order to give some sort of distraction – which in and of itself is actually a kind of relief from the horror of eternity separated from Perfect Love, Perfect Good, Perfect Truth and Perfect Beauty.
THE GREATEST TORMENT OF HELL IS THE SEPARATION FROM GOD, AND THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU WILL NEVER, EVER SEE HIM. EVER.
Look again at the detail from Fra Angelico’s Last Judgment above, in which damned humans are shown fighting and biting each other. Note how one of the two men biting each other is shown to be a monk.
THIS is what awaits fornicators. So you REALLY love that little chickie-poo, huh? Well, the next time you get an erection thinking about fornicating with her, think about the hell that awaits the both of you. If you really love her, and don’t want to spend eternity raging at her, and maybe her at you if she dies in her sin too, you’ll stop. And the same goes for the females….
THIS is what awaits adulterers – including the best-intentioned civilly divorced and “remarried” couples. If you really love each other, you’ll STOP HAVING SEX AT MINIMUM.
This is what awaits sodomites – can you imagine what hell will be like for these miserable sodomite wretches with their dozens/hundreds/thousands of sex partners? Can you imagine the enormous throngs of interconnected sodomites in an eternal frenzy of raging hatred, cursing and physically attacking each other, blaming each other for their damnation and loss of God?
Think about hell. Tell other people about hell. It is clear that love of God is a non-starter in this post-Christian culture. So be it. There is another means of catechesis, repentance and conversion. THINK, TALK AND PRAY ABOUT HELL, and beg God every day to save us from it.
Think about what Dante wrote were the words atop the Gate into Hell:
ABANDON ALL HOPE, YE WHO ENTER HERE.
And then realize that until we die, there is always HOPE – hope for every human being. And for the love of God, go to confession. In fact, make a general confession, just to be sure.
I really, really hope this helps.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.
