A Word on Hell and Universalism

by Share this post on:

There’s been a lot of talk about hell lately. When cable news channels like CNN and MSNBC join the conversation, you know it’s a hot topic. Thanks to a few “emergent” pastors who are putting a new face on an old topic, the conversation seems to be heating up.

So what about hell? Is it a metaphor for the suffering we create for ourselves on earth? Is it a temporary period of intense pruning? A long period of judgment that will eventually end in everyone being allowed entrance into heaven? Or is it a place of conscious torment that lasts forever?

What did Jesus really say? What did Jesus really mean?

Here’s my 2-part response called “Hereafter: What the Bible says about heaven, hell, and the fate of every person who ever lived.”
