Offensive? Inflammatory? Incredibly wrong? All of the above?

No, I’m not talking about my new cologne. I’m talking about this image, which I posted on the Hellbound? Facebook page today:

So far it’s generated 41 likes, 25 shares and a whole lotta traffic. However, it also prompted some less than enthusiastic responses, with at least one person writing to say it was “incredibly wrong” of me to post it.

What do you think? Was I wrong to post this cartoon? (Oops, I did it again…)

If so, on what grounds? That it unfairly represents the Church’s traditional teaching on hell? If that’s the case, how does your theology of hell evade the inherently circular logic of this piece?
