Let us be loud and clear:
Jesus answered: He it is to whom I shall reach bread dipped. And when he had dipped the bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the morsel, Satan entered into him (Jn 13:26-27).
[Christ]: Holy Father, keep them in Your name, whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are one. While I was with them, I kept them in Your name. Those You gave me, I have kept and none of them is lost, but him who was destined to be lost, that Scripture may be fulfilled (Jn 17:11-12).
Judas Iscariot, the spiritual son of his ‘father,’ Satan – the betrayer of Christ, just as Satan was the original betrayer of the Almighty Father – is in Hell for eternity. Not because the Father and the Son did not continually present him with Their mercy, but because Judas wilfully rejected this until his last dying breath. Even though Our Lady also tried to save him with her prayers.
Judas betrayed Christ, but what led to his eternal damnation was pride, the same original sin of Satan. Judas thought he ‘knew it all.’ He was too proud to humble himself and accept the mercy of Him who did not come to be an earthly king, or to accept the help of the Woman.
Anyone who claims, or attempts to claim, otherwise either has insufficient knowledge of the Faith or is a wolf of the revisionist kind.
Judas Iscariot is in Hell. Together with Martin Luther and Adolf Hitler.
The question was asked, “Is Hell just for demons?” The brief answer is a definitive “no.” Hell is not just for the Devil and his demons, but also for people who die in unrepentant mortal sin. Hell is not a metaphor as so many like to make it out to be in our present times, neither is ‘hell on earth’ the real Hell.
America, you have forgotten the most basic rule of order that underpins all humanity: Do Not Kill. The 5th Commandment of God. You are now reaping the wages of what you have sown without mercy in the heart and soul of your nation for over 250 years.
Stop killing with your words and actions, and the slaughter of your people will cease. Keep sowing hatred and division in your hearts and minds out of lust for power, for purported omnipotence, purported supremacy, and the slaughter of your own, by your very own, will increase not decrease.
RETURN TO SANITY, STOP KILLING!
ASK FOR FORGIVENESS AND THE GRACE OF ILLUMINATION
STOP THE SLAUGHTER!
There is a strong tendency these days in popular culture, especially American culture, to call people evil – evil this, evil that – and this is occurring even within Church circles (a related phenomenon is the ‘demonization of the other’). Such parlance, however, is not only harmful and linguistically wrong. It is ontologically incorrect. In other words a lie.
No human person can be validly called evil as no one is evil. There is no such thing as an “evil human being” or an “evil person,” despite the ever-increasing proliferation of this kind of language, at times unwittingly by those who should know better, but deliberately and malevolently by pharasaical demagogues within the Church itself. No one is evil. Not even those, in many people’s minds, who might be considered the worst persons ever to walk this earth are evil (e.g., serial murderers, pedophiles, and so on). This because the image of the Triune God resides untarnished in every single human person.
It is the likeness that gets fractured by human actions and sin, not the image. Never, the image. Thus, to call a person or a group of people “evil” is to manifest wild ignorance about both the ontological reality of humankind (and one’s own ontology) and to extend that very definition to God Himself.
The statement was made that “Hell is for demons” – a statement that, at its most basic, is incorrect. Hell is not just for demons, but also for all those who die with at least one single mortal sin on their soul and of which they have not genuinely repented. That is the stark reality.
A tendency has arisen and seems to be increasing these days among some Christians, Catholics included, in the United States to regard human persons and their personalities as evil in themselves. Discourses and language such as, for instance, a “distorted and evil soul” or “becoming evil” is being used more and more often to describe “evil people,” or “evil personalities,” who are regarded as “lost souls.” Apart from the fact – obvious even to children – that no Christian, no Catholic, should ever use such language these days in relation to other persons, to consider an individual or a group of individuals as evil per se does not reflect the teachings of the Church.
To give a succint example that is easily understood by the many, not even in the case of a person who is perfectly possessed by evil spirits does the Church consider that individual 100% “evil,” despite the actions he or she may have carried out while under the influence of personified evil. Let alone in the case of people who are not possessed in such a manner, or even harassed by evil or obsessed.
Hence for some Christians and Catholics to consider and describe their fellow human persons in terms of the language referenced above is to manifest inadequate catechesis in the teachings of the universal Church, including Patristics, at best. And to manifest unexpunged self-righteousness – spiritual pride – at worst. The use of such language, therefore, in relation to fellow man does not bring people closer to God. It just calls down His judgment upon oneself, since the judgment of human persons is arrogated to God alone.
The question was asked, “Is Hell reserved only for Satan and demons?” The answer is in the negative. Hell is also reserved for human persons who die with mortal sin/s on their souls, for which they do not feel contrite. Hell is very real and everlasting.
