Process Pop-Up: Deconstructing Hell
May 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm PDT
Would a loving God sentence anyone to eternal torment? Chad Bahl and other open and relational thinkers say no in their new book Deconstructing Hell: Open and Relational Responses to the Doctrine of Eternal Conscious Torment. In this online event, we’ll explore why Chad and his fellow authors argue that perhaps no modern church dogma has been more destructive to the mission of Jesus, created more atheists, or generated more religious trauma than that of eternal conscious torment (ECT) for the non-believer.
Chad, a doctoral student of Thomas Jay Oord, will highlight the very good reasons to deconstruct what many see as a harmful doctrine and introduce more constructive and healing approaches to understanding ‘final judgment.’
