Christians, do you love everyone who is in Hell, as God does?

Update:

Or do you disagree with God on this matter?

Update 2:

Fireball ..... are you saying that you do not love the fallen angels who are in Hell, unlike God who loves them? If so, then why do you disagree with God on this matter?

Update 3:

Anonymous ..... that's incorrect. The fallen angels are currently in Hell.

Update 4:

Jake ..... ahhh so you disagree with God's love for those in Hell. Does it make you happy that you disagree with God?

    I try to love all of God's human children.  With greater success in some cases than in others.

    The Bible says God loves those who love Him (Proverbs 8:17, Psalm 11:5) and just in case you say that's Old Testament it lines up with John 14:21

    There’s nobody in hell being burned. I can’t love everybody like God does, but I’m working on it.

    The word hell is a wrong translation of the word grave, pit or underground. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that God created a place of torment for sinners. The Bible says they return to the ground where they came from.

    The question does God love those in the grave? Yes, because He will resurrect the righteous and unrighteous in the future.

    19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

    20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 

    21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 

    22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 

    23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 

    24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 

    25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 

    26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. 

    27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: 

    28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 

    29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 

    30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 

    31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.

    Luke 16

    God does not love those who are in hell. When a person dies and has rejected God's love as expressed through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus, the love stops. From there on out, for eternity, they are under condemnation.

      Yes Bulky I quite agree, because God loves those who love Him (Proverbs 8:17)

    Those in hell are not to be loved.  A person can battle the devil and his demons using the rosary and fasting.

    According to Christianity, nobody's in Hell yet because the Final Judgment hasn't happened yet. Satan and the one-third host of Heaven that fell with him are roaming the Earth, while all the non-believers and evil-doers that have died are in Purgatory, or Spirit Prison, awaiting Final Judgment, which won't come until after the Second-Coming, Armageddon, and the Millennium of Peace. So the answer to your question can only be "no," but not for a lack of obeying the "love thy neighbor" commandment but because of Hell being empty and there being nobody there to love. 

    UPDATE:

    No, that's wrong. The Devil and the One-Third Host that fell with him fell to Earth and are cursed to roam the Earth:

    And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

    -Revelation 12:9

    What you claim, about Hell "being the grave or any separation from God" isn't true and lacks any scriptural foundation. The Bible is Christianity's bible, so if it's not in the Bible, it's not "according to Christianity." You can't and don't speak for Christianity, nor does anyone else, not without having chapter and verse of the Bible to give foundation. And your sock puppets you use to agree with yourself certainly don't.

      According to Christianity hell is the grave or death, total separation from God.
