Hell: A Proposal
Silent Dave raises questions about hell to Christians, so I figured I'd try to take a shot at it. Of course I'm a liberal protestant so my view may not be very representational but here's a proposal:
I don’t take hell or heaven to be spatially located. To the degree that the past is taken up in the future then our actions for ill or good somehow become permanent facts in the history of our universe, and therefore contribute something to God’s story/history
To the degree that God that has an ongoing relationship with our universe it may be that hell or heaven has little to do with us and everything to do with God’s “experience” of the world. Can we live life that makes a positive difference for God and the world?
