Here is an excerpt from an interview:
Bishop:....Meanwhile, the Eastern Christian tradition has never considered the hell as created by God to punish sinners. God didn't create the hell, free will of people has created it. It exists not because God wants it, but because people keep it existing. They first create the hell on Earth and then carry it on to the afterworld.
Interviewer: What do you mean by the hell on Earth?
Bishop: When a man using his power over others makes Earth the hell for them. Didn't Hitler turn Earth to hell for millions of people tried and tortured in concentration camps, perished in gas cameras and battlefields? Didn't Lenin and Stalin make hell for thousands and millions of people who died in camps or were shot on false denunciations or sentenced by Stalin's "troika"? Don't today's terrorists, who kill peaceful citizens, take them hostage and cut off their heads, turn Earth to the hell?...
