Here are some edifying sermons on Hell and our concept of grace.

Bell’s Hell and the Destiny of Those Who’ve Never Heard of Jesus

Bell’s Hell and the Destiny of Those Who’ve Never Heard of Jesus: “by Sam Storms @ In a recent interview with Sally Quinn of The Washington Post, Rob Bell again muddied the waters over the question of the fate of those who’ve never heard about Jesus. In doing so he also greatly misrepresented the evangelical answer to this question. Here are his words: “If, billions and billions and billions of people, God is going to torture them in hell forever – people who never heard about Jesus are going to suffer in eternal agony because they didn’t believe in

Urgent Recommendation: "Jesus: The Only Way to God" Audio Book

Description: If the evangelical church at large was ever too confrontational in its evangelism, those days are gone. In our shrinking, pluralistic world, the belief that Jesus is the only way of salvation is increasingly called arrogant and even hateful. In the face of this criticism, many shrink back from affirming the global necessity of knowing and believing in Jesus. In Jesus, the Only Way to God, John Piper offers a timely plea for the evangelical church to consider what is at stake in surrendering the unique, universal place of Jesus in salvation.Free Audio Book (Till 3/31/2011) I am listening

MSNBC Host Makes Rob Bell Squirm: "You’re Amending The Gospel…

Oh, how good it is to see that that those who were decrying Justin Taylor for His criticism did not really understand the issue at all.  You don’t have to read everything to make a comment and discern wether a writer is orthodox in his theology or not.  One can, should, and do make educated judgments based on previous experience, understandings, evidences. Those that complained about Taylor and Piper need to become much more discerning rather than trying to sound intelligent.   Justin Taylor Commented on this video:  Martin Bashir is a reporter impatient with evasive answers. He even quotes from Kevin DeYoung’s review and asks Rob Bell

Why is Hell Eternal?

Michael Patton does a great job of explaining why Christians believe Hell is eternal punishment.  read his blog post below: Why is Hell Eternal?:  I have heard this since I was a very young Christian. It seemed somewhat reasonable as it was explained to me by pastors in sermons and by Christians as they explained the seriousness of sin. The claim goes something like this: All sin is so bad that even the smallest of sins deserves eternal punishment in hell. It does not matter if it is losing your temper at a lousy referee, not sharing your Icee, or

Controversy can help us! Eternal Hell, Universalism, and Rob Bell

Controversies are common place when it comes to the development of Christian doctrine.  Over the years it has been controversies that have cause faithful Christians to re-look and define more carefully and accuractly and more committedly what we believe.  The latest controversy over hell and universalism (started by the promotion of Rob Bells new book, Love Wins) will do the same I pray for this generation. On the first weekend in March 2011 a controversy started over Rob Bell’s latest book, Love Wins (due out on March 29, 2011), supposably advoicating universalism and the non-eternality of Hell for individuals.  Controversy can be good because it makes us go back to
