After many years thinking about starting a blog, I’ve finally done it! You probably think I chose an odd topic to focus on but I think that our view of what happens after death affects our view of God, people around us and even the world itself.

Although I’m a husband, father of small children, full-time worker and part-time postgraduate student, God willing I hope to find time each week to share some thoughts on:

  1. How does our view on hell affect our view of God and people?
  2. How does our view on hell affect our view of justice and punishment’s purpose?
  3. What things in this world, which is hellish1 for many people, can we reform?
  4. Can people in hell be reformed? Is hell a place of reformation—a reforming hell?
  5. How are Christians currently trying to reform our view on hell?
  6. How have past Christians wanted to reform our view on hell?

1. this present evil age Galatians 1:4

  1. Aww so fun to find your blog and see a comment from Thomas Talbott!! Inescapable Love of God was instrumental for my husband and me in questioning some of what we’d always been taught in church growing up. Looking forward to reading through many more of your posts. Thanks for writing!

    1. Thanks Kimie, that’s very encouraging! The Inescapable Love of God is one of the few books that I’ve read multiple times. When the 2nd edition came out I managed to arrange for it to be made into an audiobook narrated by the talented George Sarris so that my brother could benefit from it 😀

      The Inescapable Love of God (Christian Audio audiobook)
      The Inescapable Love of God (Audible audiobook)

      My latest post Engaging Orr-Ewing: How Could a Holy/Loving God Send People to Hell? contains Talbott’s insights into C. S. Lewis’ conversion and a link to a great article he wrote fleshing it out.

    I would like to know what you believe about Jesus our Lord? . One of my favorite verses is Heb,1:8 I believe Jesus is God ,because God says so What do you believe about it.?

    1. Thanks for the question William. I believe the eternal Trinity is the best systematic description of God that we have. I believe it is what God has revealed, primarily in the Bible but by also through secondary means (e.g. logically an eternally loving being requires someone to have loved eternally). I believe Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ, the promised Messiah, and eternally/fully part of the Trinity. I believe He physically incarnated, taught, performed miracles, was crucified and resurrected, before ascending. While He is currently with us via the Spirit, I look forward to His physical return. Because of who He is and what He has done, I try to follow Him.

      Feel free to ask me to clarify anything.
