Why You Should Boycott Duck Dynasty

We don’t have cable, but even when we did we didn’t really watch the reality show Duck Dynasty. We’ve seen a couple episodes here and there and have been somewhat entertained. Here’s the thing, one of the main people in the Duck Dynasty family is Phil Robertson. In a recent interview with GQ he was[Continue Reading…]

Hell and The Afterlife… According to the Scriptures

Traditionally speaking, when people talk about Hell, they’re talking about a place where all the bad people go when they die. However, most our understanding of Hell comes from tradition and mistranslations of the Christian scriptures. First, let’s define Hell. According to Google, Hell is defined as… A place regarded in various religions as a[Continue Reading…]

The Second Death, a Permanent Place in Hell?

I am in the midst of writing a post about Christian Universalism (Ultimate Reconciliation). I started to study Revelation 21-22 and hit on some interesting things that I would like to write about here. The term Second Death occurs four times in the scriptures, all of which come from Revelation. The Second Death is described[Continue Reading…]

A Hypothetical Question: Osama bin Laden and Heaven

This is a question to all my Christian brothers and sisters, especially those who continue to rejoice in the belief that Osama bin Laden will spend an eternity in Hell. For the sake of my curiosity, let’s pretend that Osama bin Laden did whatever it takes (according to your belief) to be saved, whether he[Continue Reading…]

Going to Hell in a Handbasket – Part 2

BT Thanks for the comment. I assume the “unpardonable sin” you are referring to comes from “Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin” – Mark 3:28-29[Continue Reading…]

Going to Hell in a Handbasket – Part 1
