"She asked, 'Why has my youth leader never told me about hell?' With tears in her eyes she told me that she had never heard about the theology of hell and the urgency and responsibility of rescuing her friends from this coming judgment. She was upset that her youth leader never told her about it." - Church Leaders
"Hell is not horrible due to alleged implements of torture or its temperature. (After all, it is described variously in Scripture as 'outer darkness' and a 'lake of fire.') Whatever the exact nature of this everlasting judgment, it is horrible ultimately for one reason only: God is present." - Michael Horton
This is a formal statement from an organization called “Rethinking Hell!” This organization explains “our position in the Evangelical debate on Hell is that of Conditional Immortality, which holds that believers will receive the reward of immortality, while others will finally be destroyed (annihilated).” Below, you can read the group’s formal statement (also available to view on its website and to download in PDF format):
Conditionalism is the view that life is the Creator’s provisional gift to all, which will ultimately be granted forever to the saved and revoked forever from the unsaved.
Evangelical conditionalists believe that the saved in Christ will receive glory, honor and immortality, being raised with an incorruptible body to inherit eternal life (Romans 2:7).
Scalfari says to the Pope, "Your Holiness, in our previous meeting you told me that our species will disappear in a certain moment and that God, still out of his creative force, will create new species. You have never spoken to me about the souls who died in sin and will go to hell to suffer it for eternity. You have however spoken to me of good souls, admitted to the contemplation of God. But what about bad souls?
