Understanding the truth about hell can be difficult. On the third part of a 3-part series, we analyze particularly difficult texts to explain that were specifically asked of us on our social media accounts (cqbiblepodcast)
We had an outpouring of response to Parts I and II of this series. In Part III of the podcast, we directly explain some difficult Scriptures that at first glance seem to support a burning, eternal hellfire. Watch this short vlog and then grab your Bible and listen to the full podcast of the same name.
Part 2 of this 3-part vlog continues with reviewing history and Scripture to show that there is no burning hell of eternal torture. Watch this short video then listen to the full podcast of the same name.
For many centuries the churches have taught that when sinners die they face a punishment of eternal torment and torture in hell. Reading some of the descriptions of how this intense and endless torture works will make your skin crawl and your stomach turn. Yet, those who adhere to such teaching are firm in their belief that it is thoroughly biblical, and therefore entirely in line with God and His plan. But is it? What if this teaching is NOT of God but rather of Satan? Watch this short vlog then listen to the podcast of the same name for the scriptural proof and historical evidence behind our thoughts.
Christianity is amazingly fractured in its belief about what happens to the vast majority of mankind. Do unbelievers suffer in merciless agony for all of eternity in the fires of hell? Is there a purifying fire that brings them to Christ? Do unbelievers simply cease to exist?
One of the more difficult tasks of Christianity is understanding the future judgment regarding those who do not come to Jesus in this life. There are many different and contradictory teachings that we as Christians have drawn from the Scriptures regarding this judgment. On one hand, these range from the teaching that they will mercilessly burn in the torture of hell forever, to the other hand which says that God is far too loving to hurt or destroy anyone forever. This morning we will open the book and look critically at what we think the Bible actually teaches on this matter. Is hell real?
