This belief which is supported by at least a quarter of evangelicals, protestants and the majority of Catholics even though it runs counter to biblical liturgy and is in stark contrast to the law of non-contradiction.
The survey which was done on 6,485 American adults including 1,421 self-identified evangelicals in September of 2021. It asked about their views on heaven, hell, reincarnation, fate, prayer, and other religious matters.
Four in 10 Americans believe those in hell definitely or probably can meet Satan.
Meanwhile on the fate of nonbelievers, Pew found support for inclusivism among Catholics was “far more likely” than among Protestants (68% vs. 34%), and especially evangelicals (21%).
One of the interesting developments of this poll was that while most Americans believed in a literal heaven as the Bible says. Many believe not in a literal hell, but a hell of people. The idea that hell is not a real place but the construct of our reality now made by our environment or other people.
