Five times in the Gospel of Matthew, and once in the Gospel of Luke, Jesus said (Speaking of hell), "there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth". He also said that it is a place where their worm never dies and their "fire' is never to be quenched. This hell is a place not to be desired, but a place to be avoided at any cost. I would say it is a place of painful suffering for ever and ever.

Catholic AnswerThere are two pains of hell, the first is eternal separation from God. This is not a pain that we can understand all that well in this life, we will only understand the full Horror and the everlasting despair of it at the instant of our death, when we realize that we have forever damned ourselves to eternal frustration and despair. The second pain of hell is sensory, this we are told are primarily sense pain in the senses with which we sinned. This pain, we are told, by all the saints, is so intense and unbearable, that if we were not immortal, the least of these pains would cause our death immediately. However, we are immortal spirits and will perdure for eternity in eternal agony beyond any description that we are capable of on this earth.

Is god guilty of child abuse with his biblical threats of violence and burning his children in hell fire for enernity?

No, because if you choose God and stay away from sin, you are not choosing hell. God's children have free will and either say 'yes' or 'no' to Him, and reaffirm it or not by their actions. And, by the way, I read not too long ago that the fires of hell actually are not as painful as knowing you will never know God. They actually assuage the pains of hell. It made sense.ANDGod's children are not going to burn in hell, those who don't accept God is their creator /father / saviour will burn in hell.To be God's child you must be born again, spiritually reborn..
