Hell Quiz!

if you are the kind of chap who enjoyed reading my previous post, or enjoys quizzes, or likes challenging their assumptions about what's in the bible vs what's in their head via osmosis, you may enjoy Edward Fudge's Hell Quiz!

but i've read his book. and i'm so impressionable that i can't tell whether i give the answer i want or the one he wants me to give.

ps to any other readers - chap was meant in the non-gender-specific sense, like guys. i hope no offence is taken!
(but if lara-the-christian-feminist didn't then i'm sure noone will - that still cracks me up!)

So is this guy an annihilationist?

it's not that he's an annihilationist, but that he's questioning the biblical case for immortality. he sees life, eternal or otherwise as a gracious gift. so instead of taking it as an axiom that we are are innately immortal, he discards that and starts again and tries to then establish what the bible would say about eternity. if that makes sense.

his big point is we always just assume we're so highly valued that we're eternal, that to be created by an eternal creator God implies eternity bestowed upon us. and he wants to question where we get that from.

"Lara the Christian feminist"? Apparently that's an oxymoron!

i should have written lara the "christian" feminist!
ah, the internet. i wonder if they still monitor your blog for non-conservative content?

I sure hope so!

I should say that even though I haven't read this guy's book, I've read something similar, and I'm prone to questioning that we're inherently immortal anyway. I'm not convinced we have an immortal "soul" that survives separate from the body in any conscious way.

I'm also pretty impressionable in that when I know the point a quiz is trying to make, I can usually pick the right answers!

19/20. I put 'c' for 14 not 'd'.

In all honesty though, I guessed a bunch of the answers after reading your last post!
