Since my mother passed away a little more than a month ago, I have been doing a lot of soul searching regarding life, death and everything. This has been a time of putting everything on the table and taking nothing for granted, but questioning all of my previously held dogmatic beliefs. The biblical concept of hell was the first to come under the microscope.
(WARNING: WHAT I’M ABOUT TO SAY MAY SHOCK SOME OF MY CHRISTIAN FRIENDS. PLEASE RESERVE JUDGMENT UNTIL YOU GET TO THE END)
Some may think I’m questioning hell because my mother died as an unbeliever. Such is not the case. My mother had confessed Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, so according to Christian dogma, she is with the Lord as we speak. No it’s not my mother’s death in particular that got me thinking, but death in general. Come with me as I do a little thought experiment.
