What to look out for on The Hell Project
Using my blog as a newsletter for the first time...
Hello to all my subscribers, both old and new!
You may have noticed that between November 2021 and the 10th of April 2023 there have been no live streams on my channel. Aside from one sermon post in 2022, there were very few blog posts between those 17 months. What happened? Well I used to be a church elder, then a major issue hit the church I was in and I found myself standing up for a member of the church against decisions the elders had made. Long story short, that wasn’t welcomed by my fellow elders and things turned pretty ugly and I was asked to stand down as an elder in an unbiblical manner which in turn left to over 70 people leaving the church. Suffice to say, it has taken the best part of the last year to process the stress, upset, and turmoil and some of that has been fairly public due to the way I was asked to stand down. If you are curious as to what I’ve learnt from it all you can visit my personal blog here: https://www.asimpleblog.online/post/a-year-on-what-have-i-learnt
Some of my videos on The Hell Project had also slowed due to my second podcast, Critical Witness, taking up a decent amount of time. After 50 conversations we decided to close it down. This was partly due to the church mess and my own headspace, but also because we were no longer in pandemic and life was returning to a usual busyness for us and for guests. You can still find all the videos and conversations on our podcast and youtube channel though if you are interested:
All that to say, I’m finding I have some headspace and capacity in my schedule to get back into navigating the doctrine of Hell, God’s judgement, new creation, and responding to questions, videos, and having discussion on these topics with people who know more than me! You’ll have noticed that I’ve got the hang of the TikTok and YouTube Shorts to some degree. I hope they are interesting but also shareable! Need something on Revelation? I’ve got that…
Matthew 25? Yup, got you covered:
I’ve also got ones that respond to the general Hellfire and Brimstone nonsense that seems to get a lot of views:
You can find this all on TikTok as well here if you are so interested: https://www.tiktok.com/@thehellproject
So what else is coming up on The Hell Project? I’m looking to continue my study on Revelation which has stalled has I stopped at chapter five 2 years ago! I’m hoping to finish off my Matthew series with Darren Clark over the next couple of months. Life got busy for him too so he is only just getting back into being available. I’ve got a potential conversation with a universalist or two as I begin to engage further with their arguments. I’m also going to be interviewing a few different people, some who are authors, others who are apologists/evangelists, possibly a couple scholars/theologians who’ve written commentaries, and discuss all that is relevant to God’s judgement, Conditional Immortality, and, what I aim to talk about more - New Creation and Resurrection.
My next live stream will be this coming Thursday with Luke Wilson, a fellow Brit who has studied the church fathers and written a helpful guide called ‘40 Days with the Fathers’ (https://amzn.eu/d/ctHCNzC). You can also find Luke’s exploration of conditionalism as a guest post here:
