Hell

Though hell (and, moreover, the thought of eternal condemnation) has always sparked controversy, Rob Bell’s recent book Love Wins reignited the debate. Is hell a real place? Will God really send people there to burn for all eternity? Will they be wiped out of existence forever? Though it’s a difficult, sensitive topic to address, it’s one that as Christians we must discuss; after all, Jesus talked about hell more than anyone else in the New Testament.
