Hell and the Love of God Debate (Part 1 of 3) VIDEO

On April 10, 2013, the Socratic Society at Oregon State University invited Todd Miles and Christian Piatt to debate on the topic; “Hell and the Love of God.” Dr. Miles took the position that hell, as a place of eternal, conscious suffering, was consistent with a God of love. Mr. Piatt took the position that a loving God was not consistent with the contemporary Christian notion of such a fate.

Following is Dr. Miles’ argument. In Part 2, Mr. Piatt presents his argument. In part 3, the two cross-examine each other.

    Few things are as chilling, to me, as people calmly describing Hell as if it is something other than horrific.

    This is a very interesting viewpoint. I enjoy listening to these debates on Hell and discussing them.
