Erasing Hell By Francis Chan (PDF) $ 1.99 In Erasing Hell, Francis Chan speaks with compassion.

One problem is an apparent blurred line between Calvinism and Arminianism, causing the book to suffer from an overall lack of an integral system.

In my previous post, I said that while I am not an “Annihilationist,” I do see enough biblical support for this position to qualify it as an Evangelical option.

It’s a book about the character of God.

We tend to think that a loving God would allow such a place to exist. He gave us these passages so that we would live holy lives. %���� The quick turnaround shows. Not much serious interaction with Christian Universalism, tradition, modern theology, etc. July 5th 2011 I was so heavy-hearted.

In the interview, the authors admit that the book is a response to "Love Wins" – a fact, as I recall, not acknowledged in the book – making Bell's book required read.

And no wonder: "Erasing Hell" was conceived, at least partially researched, written, edited, printed-en-mass, marketed, and released within just four months of the publication of the book it is attempting to refute. “Let us be eager to leave what is familiar for what is true.”, “Jesus didn't speak of hell so that we could study, debate and write books about it. Reactionary polemic written in response to Love Wins. 3 0 obj By the end of the book, his solution is – if I may broadly paraphrase: "God wants to save everyone and is capable of saving everyone, but he doesn't, so we must conclude that we do not know what 'God's love' means [— I would add here as well: 'despite Biblical definitions and examples of God's love']." I’ve tried my best to show that there are good, compelling, biblical arguments in favor of terminal punishment and that the eternal conscious torment view of hell, while possessing some biblical merit, is not the only clear way to interpret the biblical text.

Calvinists reject proposition (1); Arminians reject proposition (2); and universalists reject proposition (3)." We tend to think that a loving God would allow such a place to exist. I applaud the authors' ability to embrace a certain level of mystery and ambiguity – this is a trait sorely needed in Christianity today – but as this is a question that concerns the moral character of God, which is a much more fundamental issue than the existence and nature of Hell, I cannot agree with Chan and Sprinkle.

Explore these tough questions in Stop Erasing Hell, as you walk through Scripture with Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle to discern how what you believe about hell changes the way you live. God's goodness, and my simple faith in that one fact, must be enough for me for now. It's crazy, if you think about it. I sensed both humility and prophetic power in this book.

"If this is indeed an inconsistent set of propositions, as I believe it is, then at least one of the propositions is false. This book, however, is not part of that good.

So yeah, I admire his honesty and his devotion to what he believes to be the truth. From the Apocalypse of Peter’s gruesome depictions of women hanging over boiling mire, to skin curling images of hell in Dante’s Inferno, to Jonathan Edwards’s blistering sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, to twentieth-century Bible-belt preachers barking with anger about the wrath to come, hell has been used—and some would say abused—to scare people into obedience or increase their tithe. This is a popular level rebuttal of Rob Bell's Love Wins.

What happens when Francis Chan encounters some Jehovah Witnesses? This really made me ponder lots of things, and I definitely would recommend it. When reading a book such as this about such topics, I hate reading things that are constantly people's opinions with not enough Bible foundation to back up their beliefs.

I have to start by asking that if this book is a response to Rob Bell's Love Wins, why does the cover look similar to Rob Bell's Jesus Wants to Save Christians? A book entitled Stop Erasing Hell written by Francis Chan, published by David C Cook which was released on 01 March 2012.

Each of, "Why does it seem like reading the Bible is more of a duty than a privilege?

Much of what we think about hell comes from presuppositions and tradition. It is easy to believe in Heaven, but not so with the literal Hell. This book seemed to be a response to Rob Bell's "Love Wins" and the suggestion of universalism.

We’d love your help. After reading both Rob Bell's Love Wins and this book, perhaps both authors have achieved what they set out to do.

I began reading Erasing Hell the day I finished reading Love Wins by Rob Bell.

Anyone who has struggled with the morality of violence will appreciate this convincing biblical. Chan's most poignant refutation against Bell is when he pointed out that a historical "fact" that Bell used was misdated about a few hundred years. I do wish he could step back and evaluate the merit of the book which he is studying so meticulously to determine first if his one source may contain errors. This book seemed to be a response to Rob Bell's "Love Wins" and the suggestion of universalism. Available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Erasing Hell is, in large part, Francis Chan's response to Rob Bell's Love Wins. Repeatedly they remind the reader that this topic is not merely fodder for theological debate---these are issues of eternal destinies for real peopl. They've asked the same, Revised & Updated Edition! They begin apologetically, seemingly coming along side the reader and admitting how difficult the subject it. Why do you believe what you believe? There is the emphasis throughout that this topic cannot just be considered theologically, whatever the truth is there are certain ramifications for the billions who have lived, who are living and who will live. "Love Wins" eeks by with just a little more modesty and a little more trust in the reader's willingness to continue thinking after they finish the book.
He doesn't just make a passing mention here and there.

You can almost feel him trembling over the issues at stake.

This was surprisingly disappointing. Welcome back. God is love.
