While Hell is largely considered to be a dungeon created to torment and punish unbelievers it is actually an accommodation for those who want nothing to do with God. It is not God who makes Hell the frightening dystopia we understand it to be. The cause of it’s hellishness is the absence of any essence of God. I would suggest that it is a place created in neutrality by God but, absent of God’s influence became a place where man’s imperfect and selfish nature reigns sovereignly.
There are Biblical prophecies that are not part of any grand design but are illustrations founded on a divine foreknowledge of what happens when man’s freewill runs amok. Imagine a society devoid of any semblance of God. (John Lennon’s song notwithstanding)
Hell, as described in the Bible, awaits any soul choosing not to enter into a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Since Heaven is a place where the physical presence of God is manifest in the omnipresence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, why would anyone who does not want to live with God on earth have any desire to live with Him in a heavenly city where His presence is constant?
Hell is devoid of any evidence of God’s existence and so, once inhabited by fallible, imperfect people the social trajectory is predictable; unbridled selfishness.
To summarize, Hell is a place with which God has little or nothing to do. He created Eden as a paradise to be shared by Him and His beloved human creation. He created Hell as a place for people who do not welcome fellowship with God. Consider it the Anti-Eden.
