"Well, there are all manner of lesser imps and demons, Pete, but the great Satan hisself is red and scaly with a bifurcated tail, and he carries a hay fork."~Ulysses Everett McGill.
So...the title of this blog, do you remember the corny bumper sticker from the 90's? I always thought this was a horribly corny saying. Today however Hell has gotten to be quite a topic of discussion given books and the resurgence of the term "UNIVERSALISM."
I have been quite vocal as well regarding my excitement to read, Rob Bell's book because I am a fan of his other writings. Some have even questioned what I believe to be true regarding hell so here it is kids....ready? I do believe there is a hell. Okay...there I said it.
The reason people get the impression that I side with universalism and other theologies is that I am always open for good discussion. I think it is horrible how many Christians assume things before they read a blog, book, etc. They just wait to hear from the loudest person and go with it. Nothing offends me when it comes to discussion. I know where I stand on issues and am not easily swayed (surprisingly to some). I just choose not to be an opinionated jerk Christian and would rather hear people out. I would rather let people state their case/opinion and since it is there opinion I just say "interesting" and move on having learned a few things.
