Does Hell Exist?
The existence of Hell itself contradicts the very basic idea of most monotheistic gods being omni-benevolent and all powerful.

Benevolence and omnipotence are not contradictory to the idea of justice, which is another trait that God is said to possess in abundance.
The existence of Hell only contradicts the nature of an omni-benevolent being if it is first assumed that Hell is itself an evil. The fact that it is unpleasant does not in and of itself make it evil.
