Hell is not mentioned once in 2/3 of the Bible. That is to say the entire Old Testament. In some older English translations of the Bible (such as the KJV), the word "hell" is used to translate certain words such as sheol (Hebrew) and hades (Greek). These words do not typically refer to the place of eternal punishment, but to the underworld or temporary abode of the dead.

There is many a formidable case against even the existence of Hell. There is no fully developed teaching about hell in the New Testament, though there are frequent mentions of it. Only in the course of later church history was it elaborated into official church doctrine. Today the New Testament statements and their later explanations are taken literally by some Christians, regarded as allegory or myth by some, and denied altogether by others.

Here are two great sites...
HELL IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
If Hell is Real

I've vacationed there before. I must say it truly is beautiful. I got a picture of me holding the soul of hitler on a fishhook.(the souls of the damned are what you fish for there) they all are quite willing. So there's no need for bait. I would skip the boat though. It's a metal paddle boat. I tried it...3rd degree burns on my bottom. It wasn't pleasant. There's a cliff on the east end go there to fish. They really aren't that good to eat though. Stringy but empty like a mashmellow with no taste at all. No I recomend if you are ever driving past it stop to take a look at the senery then move on. If you must stay just set yourself a place on the beech, and avoid making eyecontact with the locals. Oh, and if some big demon guy is walkin by don't scream. They don't seem to like it and will throw you in the lake.

In the Bible the word Hell means the grave, or tomb, or a place for burial.
