I recently skimmed through this video, and I thought it was worthy of attention:
In this video, Bart show the thesis of his recent book, in which he seems to guarantee that there is absolutely no Hell beyond silly christian inventions, that there is only annihilationism.
Of course, as we all know, there are endless references to a place of suffering, pain and anguish all theough the Bible in both the OT and NT, but in the magical world of Bart, everything is possible. For example, when Daniel talks about “waking up to eternal shame and contempt”, that just means that at ressurrection they are judged, annihilated, and that they are perpetually held in contempt by eeryone. It doesn’t matter that Daniel is clearly talking about what someone experiences. It doesn’t matter that right before he talked about waking up to eternal life in perfect parallelism.
Again, when Jesus talks about eternal fire, and the “worm that does not die” (or similar), it just means that people are annihilated… er… in some place so in that place there is lots of death and whatever.
It is a constant insane unnatural reading. Is anyone more familiar with this topic?
