How Do Hell Debates Effect Our Spirituality? - GoodLion Theology

🔥 Exploring Hell: The Big Debate

In this Q&A episode of the Good Lion Podcast, we take on one of the most challenging theological topics: hell. With a listener's heartfelt question as our starting point, we delve into how the intense debates around literal vs. metaphorical interpretations affect our faith journey.


🤔 Reconciling God's Love & Justice

How do we reconcile the concept of eternal separation from God's presence with His boundless grace?

Are flames and darkness symbols of something even more troubling than the imagery itself?

We explore how these views shape our understanding of God's love, grace, and His invitation to an abundant life.


📚 Recommendations for the Journey

We recommend a book that thoughtfully engages with these questions (Erasing Hell, By Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle), offering a compassionate approach to understanding the theological complexities. No matter where we stand, God's grace is an open invitation, urging us toward a life overflowing with love, peace, and the promise of a new heaven and earth.


🌊 Navigating the Waters Together

We offer encouragement and guidance as we navigate these turbulent waters.

The unyielding grace of God calls us to a life rooted in His kingdom and away from separation.


Join us as we seek clarity and hope in the unchanging love of God, always embracing His grace and the joy of journeying together.
