Is Hell, going out of fashion? "The death of Hell"

Dear Friend,

Just browsed through an article recently about the 'death of Hell' or the idea that 'Hell is going out of fashion'. This can be seen in a number of ways.

1). Preachers dont preach on the subject as much as they use to (When last did you hear or preach a sermon on Hell?)

2). Newer bible translations use the word less & less.

3). Authors such as Rob Bell 'Love Wins' questioning the orthodox concept of Hell.

To this end, I try to contend for a well thought out biblical attitude towards hell in my

1). Reading: David Pawson "The Road to Hell" / "Once Saved, Always Saved?"

2). Preaching "One Hell of a Sermon" Luke 16:19-31 (some people say this is a parable, however parables do not mention names or know people, also if it is a parable, parables point to a greater truth what is the greater truth of the text?)

3). Hosting the drama production "Heaven's Gates & Hell's Flames"

We always see conversions for Christ when we host these free shows & it is a great way to get people to work together for the Gospel.

Have God day
