Whether God is present in Hell


It’s a good question - the type of question we all learn from. Thanks for posting it.

God bless.

There are diffent ways that God is present.

In the Blessed Sacrament he is present body,soul, divinity.

In the soul of a man in the state of grace, he is present thru his sanctifying grace, the divine life of God.

In nature, he is present to everything by his power upholding everything created in existence, without which they would fall into nothingness.

In the third way he is present to those in hell …by his power.

When Jesus descended to hell

“Jesus did not deliver those souls damned to eternal punishment in hell nor did He destroy hell as such”.
