Here is a Catholic site definition.

The word "Hell" in the Apostles' Creed means the "nether world," the abode of the dead. That same word is translated "Sheol" in Hebrews and "Hades" in Greek." It is translated to "Inferno" in Latin.

Then going to hell has nothing to do with whether a person is sinner. Christ committed no sin and went into hell, Hades, as Peter said and this was the Sheol that Ps.16:10 spoke of when Peter quoted it as prophetic of the Messiah.

Is Mr. Zimak telling the truth? or is he confused about the truth of the Scriptures?
