If I did hand you 50 verses that show that there is a hell and people are going there, how can I be wrong? Either there will be people in hell, as Jesus claimed, or there is no hell. WHat are you going to believe, the word of God, or your own misguided beliefs?
Hell is a place, God made it, and there will be people there, otherwise God wouldn’t have made it.
The conversation would go like this:
Believer: "The Bible says x."
Heretic: "I don't believe it."
Repeat 50 times...
Besides, I didn't post this to debate the topic of hell, I posted it to hopefully learn and verify that this heretical teaching by Bell has been rejected by his former church. From what I've gathered on from this column, that is INDEED the case.
Genesis 2 The woman said to the serpent, We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.
4 You will not certainly die, the serpent said to the woman. 5 For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.
Your position is the serpent is correct. You might not like the conditions but you certainly will not die.
