Pastor and theologian Greg Boyd looks carefully at the verses used to justify the traditional view of hell (a place of eternal torment, where the worm never dies, etc.), and talks about how he envisions the Final Judgment.
Some, unfortunately, have already written off Boyd for some of his non-traditional views (Open Theism, which is not a view that I share. Nor, really, care to look into at this moment). But, first, we should take truth wherever we find it. All truth is God’s truth. Second, however, and this is kind of central to my point, just because it’s not traditional doesn’t mean it isn’t true, or that the person who brought up the non-traditional point-of-view is a false prophet and worthy of… well, hell.
So please, take away about forty-five minutes and give it a good listen before dismissing it. Because, as I’ve come to learn, questions are good. And God is bigger than our questions.
