Theology Pub: What About Hell?

  • Opa Coffee & Wine Bar 2050 South Lamar Boulevard Austin, TX, 78704 United States (map)

Many people believe that the primary point of Christianity is to save individuals from suffering eternal conscious torment in Hell after they die - an essential and inseparable facet of the Christian faith. And yet many people have no idea that the word Hell is actually nowhere in the Bible. Other Christians, in fact, have argued that popular concepts of Hell are later, monstrous additions to a faith that has little to do with postmortem destinies and nothing at all to do with a vengeful God eager to torment people for all eternity.

What then are we to think about Hell? Come explore the biblical, theological, and cultural history of this concept at our next theology pub. Questions and differing opinions are encouraged and all perspectives are welcome. See you there!
