Spring Harvest and Universalism

Here is a genuine surprise! Spring Harvest, the main Christian festival in the UK, explored the topic of eschatology this year. And the study guide (which all delegates receive) handles the topic of Hell in such a way that eternal conscious torment, annihilation, and evangelical universalist views of Hell are set out as equally evangelical options!!!

I must confess to being somewhat astonished that universalism has been treated not only as something less than heresy but as a view to serious ponder, albeit a minority report.

So - it is thumbs up to Spring Harvest for having the courage to tolerate evangelical universalism! It will be interesting to see what the fall out of that decision is.

Hi Greg,

Just reading your book now and am enjoying it; I like books which let me mess with my head a little!

Really though - very helpful thanks, even not far in.

Spring Harvest- I'm shocked and pleased :)

Kind regards
Steve
