Most people assume that “hell” means “eternal conscious torment forever and ever.” But the doctrine of hell has actually been widely disputed throughout church history. There are actually three quite different understandings of hell that have been believed and taught in the historic, orthodox Christian church: eternal conscious torment, annihilation, and ultimate reconciliation. 

In this first (of two) videos on hell, I lay out these three different understandings of hell. I try to do so in an unbiased way so that you can wrestle with each view without letting my rhetoric get in the way. In the next video, I’ll show why I believe in the view of hell that I do.
