The Case for Annihilationism

Annihilationism is the view that whoever and whatever cannot be redeemed by God is ultimately put out of existence. Sentient beings do not suffer eternally, as the traditional view of hell teaches.

Everybody’s Got a Prequel

My wife and I, along with some friends, recently attended the Broadway Play Wicked.

We read it saying, “Thou shall not be rude.” So in sincere obedience we set…

Cruciform Aikido Pt 2: God-Forsaken Judgment

So if Jesus is the supreme revelation of what God is like, as we explained in our last post, what does that tell us about the nature of God’s judgment?

As Jesus was dying on the cross he cried out, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?,” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mt. 27:46). This shocking cry reveals…
