What is Your View on Hell?

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

A painting in the Sanctuary Notre-Dame des Fontaines, La Brigue called the "Last Judgment : the damned souls".
In light of the recent controversy surrounding the doctrine of hell and the idea of universalism, prompted by the recent release of Rob Bell's (Pastor of Mars Hill Church in Grandville, MI) book, Love Wins, here are a couple of lectures on the different ideas of hell that have had prominence in the church over the past 2000 years. Many people think that the traditional eternal torment view, as espoused by many evangelicals today, is the only view held by the church over the centuries. This is not true. In these two lectures, Steven Gregg does a great job of presenting and explaining three main views that have been prominent throughout church history in different places, as espoused by certain respected church fathers. If you've never studied this, I recommend you listen to these lectures and then come back and let's discuss it. What is your view? Why do you believe this?
