Erasing Hell: Podcast at Rethinking Hell with Dr. Preston

Episode 5: Erasing Hell with Preston Sprinkle

A great interview with Dr. Preston who co- authored Erasing Hell.

{ see Erasing Hell Review on Afterlife by Jefferson Vann and ‘s  review of Erasing Hell ( which is mentioned in the interview) }

Dr. Preston Sprinkle now leans to conditionalism but is still undecided at the moment. He makes mention of E Earle Ellis. Here is a link to Ellis’ book “Christ and the Future in NT History”, Chapter 14 is “New Testament Teaching on Hell”

New Testament Teaching on Hell

3 texts that Dr. Preston mentions that causes him to pause are

Matthew 25:46  

Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.

Revelation 14:9-11

A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand,they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”

Rev. 20:10-15

And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.  The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done.  Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

I am sure you will appreciate Chris Date giving his understanding of these texts.
