January 2020 – Christian Formation Adult Class.
Millions of Christians have struggled with how to reconcile God’s love and God’s judgment: Has God created billions of people over
thousands of years only to select a few to go to heaven and everyone else to suffer forever in hell?
Is this acceptable to God? How is this “good news”?
Troubling questions-so troubling that many have lost their faith
because of them. Others only whisper the questions to themselves, fearing or being taught that they might lose their faith and their church if they ask them out loud.
But what if these questions trouble us for good reason? What if the story of heaven and hell we have been taught is not, in fact, what the Bible teaches? What if what Jesus meant by heaven, hell, and salvation are very different from how we have come to
What if it is God who wants us to face these questions?
Author, pastor, and innovative teacher Rob Bell presents a deeply biblical vision for
rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually satisfying way of
understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance. The result is the discovery that the “good news” is much, much better than we ever imagined.
