Is Judas in Hell‪?‬ The Fr. Mike Schmitz Catholic Podcast

    • Christianity

Is Judas in Hell? The overwhelming consensus over time is that he must be. But has the Church proclaimed that he definitely is? Surprisingly... no. Why?


Jesus teaches us that, while we can evaluate “a tree by its fruits,” it is left to God alone to make a final judgement upon someone’s heart and determine their destination. Everyone has the grace and the opportunity to say “yes” to God. The sobering flipside to this reality is that hell is real—and it’s not something that only really, really bad people choose. “Wide is the road that leads to destruction.”


Today, Fr. Mike invites us to ponder our final destination, and whether or not we are truly doing God’s will.
