There are probably hundreds of possible outcomes after death everything from reincarnation to a place of everlasting pain and suffering. But nobody really knows what happens. Personally, I don't believe in hell, so I'm pretty confident I won't be going there. Or maybe that's what happens, our ideas of what hell or heaven is become reality when we die.

Hi there Eudaimonia,

Freemasonry doesn't exactly have a collective view on this kind of thing, as we incorporate members from different religions and beliefs.

I personally believe that Hell is simply a state of separation from God, rather than a literal lake of fire. I believe that this (fairly morbid) concept derives from the ancient use of the Hebrew word Gehenna as a nickname or euphemism for Hell. Gehenna was a literal firepit where garbage was burned, and my opinion is that some over-active imaginations took this concept to a darker level and a literal meaning.

Hope this makes sense. Haven't had any coffee yet this morning...

It would depend entirely on what religion or faith/mindset they belonged to when they joined.

It almost certainly varies from person to person.

Going on memory here.

At one time Hell was depicted as cold (painted in shades of blue, etc..) because it was hidden/separated from the light (warmth) of God.
