I’ve been promising for some time now to take the show straight to hell, and you know, Christmas is actually a great time to do it, especially considering the very first instance of the word “hell” comes from the mouth of no other than Jesus (but you’ll be amazed at what he intended).

In the first moments of this show you’ll hear how I went searching for a way I could retain my respect for the Bible as divinely inspired, and yet lose a doctrine that was no longer compatible with my heart’s beliefs. That is how I found Gary. Here is a man who thinks with both his heart and his head, and this balanced emotionally and intellectual intelligence, plus a lot of research and study, led him to conclude heaven will include a whole lot more souls that most people think, and hell will not only be empty, it doesn’t exist at all.

Let the Fighten’ Fundies light up the phones with their protests as we drop in on a conversation with Gary Amirault of tentmaker.org.

In this episode you’ll learn about:

  • How modern Bible translators now understand “Sheol” means “the place of the dead” and not “a place of torment”

  • Doctrine is no substitute for the reality of experiencing God’s love
