The traditional Christian picture of hell is problematical. It is said to be a place of punishment where sinners are sent, against their wills, into eternal fiery torment. Many Christians have rejected the notion and even those who accept it, or parts of it, seem only rarely to want to talk about it. And this is for the obvious reason that the traditional picture seems to many people today to be inconsistent with the claim that God is morally good, perfectly just, and infinitely loving.
