Description of the 5 views of hell

A Biblical description of hell / hades


‘The Narrow Gate’ (Luke 13:22-30)


Shane Claiborne talks about hell

“I figure anytime you are about to talk about hell it’s good to start with a joke, so here we go?.It was a busy day in heaven as folks waited in line at the pearly gates. Peter stood as gatekeeper checking each newcomer’s name in the Lamb’s Book of Life. But there was some confusion, as the numbers were not adding up. Heaven was a little overcrowded, and a bunch of folks were unaccounted for. So some of the angels were sent on a mission to investigate things. And it was not long before two of them returned, “We found the problem,” they said. “Jesus is out back, lifting people up over the gate.””

Brian McLaren talks about hell

“I am not embracing a traditional universalist position, but I am trying to raise the question, When God created the universe, did he have two purposes in mind – one being to create some people who would forever enjoy blessing and mercy, and another to create a group who would forever suffer torment, torture, and punishment? What is our view of God? A God who plans torture? A God who has an essential, eternal quality of hatred? Is God love, or is God love and hate?”
