who has ears to hear…

 

Hell may

assault ears with

unearthly shrieks of

self-condemned rebels

tortured by vicious demons,

an infernal crackling

of eternal fire,

but worse yet

will be the

echoing miseries of sin,

utter absence of love,

awful silence of God.

    That’s how I think of ‘hell’ Lynn… total absence of God’s love … Diane

    Calling and receiving no answer…that is darkness. (K)

    This is frightening as well:

    utter absence of love,

    awful silence of God.

    Hell might be that – sometimes that happens in life and it is a bleak kind of hell.

    Silence has its own charm. It takes strength to get through life. Heaven and hell are our own creation, right?

    Hell might be that and even more… maybe each of us has a personal hell.

    Nice description of hell as the awful silence of God and absence of love–worse than any fire.
