A group on facebook called “Rethinking Hell” has recently started. I’m appreciating the discussion and joining something wider than afterlife.co.nz. It’s a truly international group with a enthusiam and passion to call Christians to Rethink Hell.
Rethinking Hell is a
” A respectful discussion among Evangelical Christians, exploring Annihilationist views of Hell in light of the traditional view.”
Come join in
Hell and Mr. Fudge is coming soon!! I’m so looking forward to it:-)
A new book from Edward Fudge:
Hell: A Final Word, is under 200 pages and it is accessible to the lay Christian. It is currently available from fishpond for NZ$17 with free shipping or from the Book Depository (free international shipping).
This review of Love Wins http://www.redletterchristians.org/love-wins-isnt-jewish-enough-for-rob-bell/
led me to Kurt Willems’ series on hell
A presupposition of mine is the validity of what scholars call conditional immortality. Church Fathers such as Theophilus, Irenaeus, and Justin Martyr argued this perspective. Clark Pinnock states: “God created humans mortal with a capacity for life everlasting, but it is not their inherent possession.” The idea that humans are innately immortal is foreign from biblical thought. Greek philosophy fuels this assumption.
A movie coming about the debate Christians are having about hell
well worth watching the preview and the director. I’m looking forward to its release.
