More on the controversial book from a pastor named Rob Bell who questions whether there really is a hell.
> He describes going to a Christian art show where one of the pieces
> featured a quote by Mohandas Gandhi. Someone attached a note
> saying: “Reality check: He’s in hell.”
> “Gandhi’s in hell? He is? And someone knows this for sure?” Bell
> asks in the video.
> Holtz spent years trying to reconcile his belief that Jesus
> Christ’s death on the cross redeemed the entire world with the idea
> that millions of people - including millions who had never even
> heard of Jesus - were suffering forever in hell.
> “We do these somersaults to justify the monster god we believe in,”
> he said. “But confronting my own sinfulness, that’s when things
> started to topple for me. Am I really going to be saved just
> because I believe something, when all these good people in the
> world aren’t?”
