[Video} Bishop Carlton's response to Rob Bell & Concept of Hell


Gehenna is commonly used by misperceiving Christians to mean hell, when in reality it was a garbage dump. I now believe that the entire concept of hell in traditional evangelical Christianity is erroneously based on both superstition and the influence of ancient pre-Christian pagan mythologies…. As I see it, the evidence is incontestable: Christians risk becoming utterly irrelevant in their own culture if they continue to separate people into ‘We, the Saved’ and ‘They, the Damned’. Again, I ask, do we need Jesus to protect us from God? Is that what Christianity as we’ve known it is about? Are we saved from God by God?”
