I don't believe in an endless judgement and torment without hope of redemption. If hell is truly the souls relationship with God, I would imagine that that relationship can be dynamic and can be drawn to God through the prayers of the saints and that souls penitence. That is not to say that all souls will be drawn, only that they can be. Abraham told the rich man that if his brothers did not listen to the law and the prophets, they would not listen to a dead man risen from the grave. Some will have such hardness of heart that they will reject God regardless of the circumstances. Even in that parable, the rich man never repented, he only sought relief. I sometimes wonder how it would have ended if he had cried out: Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner. Would Abraham's response have been different? Instead, he only complains about his torment and asks for relief. As long as he has that mindset, the gulf is too great to be crossed.
