A little help from our friends, please...
Here's a comment just left under an older post critiquing Tim Keller's sashaying around the Biblical doctrine of Hell. I'd be grateful if a couple of you good readers would help lead this brother back to the green pastures where sheep may safely graze. Time is short for the next couple of weeks as my brother and I work together on a writing project for which we'd ask your prayers.
I desperately want to keep my Christian faith, but the doctrine of hell is so disturbing! I just don't see how I could ever really believe that some of the people I see every day might have to endure some form of eternal torment. It doesn't seem like there's any way to reason with this kind of a doctrine. It is just so wrong, so revolting. . . and yet, the bible is so clear about it:"eternal fire." I think that we don't know how bad hell's going to be, but we just have to trust God that it will be just punishment. This is not very easy for me to do. . .
If you're willing to respond, please do so here under this post.
