Christians, if hell is the center of Earth, does that mean our souls are trapped inside our coffin and we slowly descend to the magma ?

    If you believe fireball then yes. Don't worry though, you'll only spend a billion years or so there before hell gets destroyed when the sun expands into its red giant phase and swallows up the planet

    It isn't.  Hell is more of a condition than a place.

    Sure and if hell is in the center of a cone of candy floss then we slowly descend into a sweet sugary fluffy mess and get eaten by a child. 

    But it isn't so it's just a silly question.

    There are two 'hells' presented in scripture. One is temporary and GOD describes it as a mass grave called 'Sheol' or 'Hades,' (in the 'depths of the earth'), where souls are first formed, (Psalm 139:15) and also return to enter a state of deep unconsciousness, (Ecclesiastes 9:10), unless GOD intervenes, transforms the soul by His Holy Spirit and guides them into heaven instead.  

    'Eternal hell' (also known as 'Gehenna' or 'Tartarus'), is described instead as an 'outer darkness,' 'untraversable chasm' and 'endless abyss,' where the unrighteous in Hades will be 'transferred' after resurrection and Judgment. By all descriptions, it sounds very much like what modern humans call 'space.' Space is entered by passing through 'fiery walls,' has no water, air or known life, and naturally causes human blood to boil and vital organs to explode. That sure sounds like 'hell' to me. 

    I'll pass, even with a space suit and spaceship.
