Like many beliefs that trip up people Hell comes from Roman catholic doctrines that protestants still teach.
Hell is three distinct and different places in the bible which get translated into one word, which is misleading.
Sheol is the traditional Jewish "Hell" which is split in two, one where the righteous get rest, and the unrighteous wait for judgement .
the Abbusso is where the worse angels wait for the end times.
And the traditional hell, which is the lake of fire or Tartaras, which wont be seen until the final judgement.
Its funny that doctrines have combined these places to create "hell", and that it is a huge stumbling block for people believing in a a "loving"
There is a strong doctrinal argument to be made that what the "Unrighteous" face at judgement is simply destruction of self, poof you don't exist
anymore. Which is what some denominations of Christianity believe.
Jesus himself said "do not fear he that can destroy the body, but he who can give you the second death" Which would be destruction of your soul, not
eternal torment like the catholic and many christian denominations teach.
