Welcome to almost heretical
If there is no consensus on a singular notion of Hell, then how the hell ought we to think and feel about all this? In Part 3, Nate and Tim further examine the complexity and inconsistency in the so-called “Biblical worldview” on Hell.
Where did "hell" come from? What is Sheol? Hades? Gehenna? And who goes to these places (or are they are even places?) We’ll see how our idea of Hell is actually an amalgam of various concepts related to multiple different questions.
Many of us are terrified of Hell, but should we be? Is Christianity supposed to ease our anxieties around death or exasperate them? And is Hell really about torture? We ditch the Bible and traditional ideas for a bit to try to imagine the theoretical possibilities for some sort of future judgment.
Tim and Wade discuss why both abuse and the cover-up of abuse are so prevalent in evangelical churches and how to know if your church and its leaders are lying to you.
Brandi Miller talks about pursuing racial justice within evangelicalism, what the gospel really is, how American Christianity trains people to be controlled, and much more.
In the third segment of question and response, Nate and Tim discuss whether the story of the Exodus ought to be taken literally, whether Christianity has made an idol out of the Bible, and more.
Is it your responsibility to call out your racist uncle? Does God heal people and is it helpful to believe that? Are the women heroes in the Bible messiah figures? Nate and Tim continue responding to your questions.
