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.

    Maybe he should read these 95 Tweets?

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