Description

Rethinking Hell is a central resource for a view on Hell called Conditional Immortality (a.k.a. conditionalism or annihilationism). Focusing on this biblical view as held by many Evangelical Christians, we interview notable proponents, respond to the challenges of critics, present the stories of people who once held to the traditional view but are now rethinking hell, and much more.

Rethinking Hell contributor Chris Date responds to comments recently made by James White on the Dividing Line, in which White rightly explains that biblical language of Christ shedding his precious blood means he died as a substitute in place of those for whom his sacrifice was made. Chris asks, if the blood of Christ points metonymically to his substitutionary death, doesn't that mean the punishment awaiting the unsaved is likewise death?

I just learned about this podcast via a survey that I am conducting (though it is anonymous, so I do not know who filled it out). Would you be interested in a public debate with us? Conditional immortality is not annihilationism: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i4kyfdghjm3ri66/Conditional%20Immortality%20is%20NOT%20Annihilationism.pdf?dl=0
