May Update on The Hell Project
A start of a semi-regular recap of all things published on The Hell Project
First off, welcome to my new subscribers. I’m very grateful for you and am hope what I do continues to be helpful for you. Given the ease at which short videos are published these days I want to start doing a recap of the ones I think will be most helpful for sharing when conversations about Hell are had. I’d also like to highlight the ones that have the most interesting comments like the one below (though he sadly deleted it soon after)!
Other updates in this newsletter will be pointing to resources I’ve interacted with and found helpful. I imagine I’ll find other things to put in here over time as well. Let me know if you have ideas or thoughts about what you’d like me to share as well.
The most watched video by far this month is in response to a video by Colton Lane Hall, a popular youtuber and revivalist, telling the “truth” about where people go to when we die. You can find the longer response here: link
The most comments and conversation though has been around my response to Billy Graham:
This spurred the most comments on my (new) Facebook page when I posted it there but also drew the comment about my ‘proud look’ in the comment shared above on YouTube.
I personally think the more shareable videos for defending the conditionalist views would be this one on Gehenna:
Navigating the language of weeping and gnashing of teeth:
and a response to the common phrase that Hell is the absence of God:
What has stood out to you on the channel this month?
I am looking forward to two conversations in the next week, the first being on Thursday with Andy Kind, a preacher and comedian (or promedian as he calls it). We’ll be talking about where Hell fits in with evangelism and his understanding of what Hell is.
I will also be talking with Rebekah Davis next Monday (22nd May) to discuss Conditionalism and Inclusivism. I haven’t yet set up the live chat link but you can see a discussion I had with her last week about my church experience here:
I have also re-started on my study of Revelation and am hoping to have the study of chapter 6 published on my blog in the next week or so. I won’t hold myself to too tight a deadline but I’d like to make progress on it. You can see the introduction here:
If you haven’t been interacting with conditionalism for very long, I highly recommend listening to the Rethinking Hell podcast starting from episode 1. The first 5 episodes will introduce you to the strength of the scriptural case for conditionalism and key people who embody knowledge, humility, and graciousness to those who disagree. Chris Date’s interview with Edward Fudge and Dr Glenn People’s positive case for conditionalism are particular highlights.
While discussing Rethinking Hell, please also keep Chris Date’s wife in your prayers. You can see an update on his Facebook as she is battling a tumour in her brain.
Thank you all for being a part of this community and I greatly appreciate your emails and comments and do my best to respond to each one. If I haven’t replied to one yet, I hope to do so soon!
God bless you and I pray that you know Jesus’ love through the coming month.
