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?
Rethinking Hell contributor Chris Date recently presented a paper at Lloyd Strickland's and Andrew Crome's conference, "Imagining the Last Things: Eschatology and Apocalypticism, 1500-Present." Chris's paper, "An Unquenchable Doctrine: The Tenacity of Conditional Immortality in Recent History," outlines the history of conditionalism since the Reformation and its increasing popularity despite attempts by traditionalists to stamp it out, and the evolution of the doctrine of eternal torment into something much more moderate than would be recognizable to Christians of the past.
Rethinking Hell contributors Chris Date and Nick Quient join Joey Dear to review their recent debate with Damon Richardson and Elce Lauriston.

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
