Keller’s “The Importance of Hell”: Final Conclusion

The Glorious Multi-faceted Cross! In brief review, we learned that to assume the penal substitutionary death of Christ as THE explanation for what occurred on the cross is false. Again, there are significant reasons to be hesitant to embrace Keller’s defense of the Penal Substitutionary Atonement as “the Gospel.” First it fails to recognize that [...]

A Response to Keller’s “The Importance of Hell”: Conclusion-Part 1

First, the Mystery… These last posts in response to Keller’s “The Importance of Hell” will be a bit lengthy for they concern the mystery of the atonement. Evangelicals generally teach the atonement as if it is indisputably understood as they present their understanding as “the correct view.” Unfortunately one’s view of the atonement has become [...]

A Response to Keller’s “The Importance of Hell”: Conclusion Part 2

Is Keller discussing “The importance of hell” or “The importance of an eternal hell”? FIrst I’d like to point out something that missed my attention at the outset of these posts. If you notice, in the same way that the title of Keller’s article says “The Importance of Hell” and does not specify an “eternal” hell, Keller continues to [...]

How the Church Supports Christian Universalism Within Itself!

Updated January 8, 2014:  We have discovered yet even more evidence within the Body of Christ which expose our inherent faith in “Christian Universalism” (= the absolute success of the cross for all mankind). They happen to be some of the strongest! We updated and are re-posting this article as it is central to understanding our unique approach [...]

A Response to Keller’s “The Importance of Hell” Part 2

Dr. Keller continues in his article, “The Importance of Hell”: (Part 1 HERE) In the parable of Luke 16:19ff, Jesus tells us of a rich man who goes to hell and who is now in torment and horrible thirst because of the fire (v.24) But there are interesting insights into what is going on in [...]

Response to Keller’s “The Importance of Hell” Part 1

Note to USAToday, Christianity.com and Crosswalk.com readers: Interestingly the reference to Tim Keller’s article is actually our refutation of Keller’s belief that the nature of hell is a place of non-remedial endless torture. This site reveals how an understanding of true Biblical justice demands a restorative view of hell. This can be demonstrated Biblically, logically, [...]

Mark Galli Responds to “Hellbound?”

The following is a response to Mark Galli’s review of “Hellbound?” at Christianity Today entitled Movie Purgatory (9/20/12). Mark Galli utilizes the fact that “Hellbound?” asks more questions than it answers in order to dismiss its value. Galli opens with: ‘Hellbound?,’ seemingly bound to fail from the beginning, never takes a stand on the issue. – He continues [...]

“Hellbound?” and Mark Driscoll On Asking Questions

“It’s not a problem to ask questions but sometimes when certain questions are asked it’s by someone who’s a coward and doesn’t have the conviction to declare their answer.”  Mark Driscoll in “Hellbound?” I assume Driscoll was referring to the question-drivenness of Rob Bell in Love Wins. But as many have noted the newly released docu-movie [...]

Dr. Marvin Olasky: Justice as Righteousness

In an article unpacking the meaning of true Biblical justice Marvin Olasky, Editor-in-Chief of World Magazine, makes this thesis statement: “Biblically, the most important purpose of justice is to increase righteousness. Whatever decreases faith in God is unjust.”  We have all heard the argument defending an eternal hell based on God’s holiness and “justice.” It [...]
