Chalke Talk 84: Did the apostle Paul believe in hell or damnation?

Back from a summer break, this week Steve continues to explore what the bible actually teaches – or doesn’t teach – about Hell and the idea, as the medieval church put it, of ‘perpetual punishment with the devil’ for those were ‘unworthy of Christ’.

Although the apostle Paul is often thought of as the number one preacher of post-mortem damnation, once you stop long enough to take a real look at his writing you are in for a rather big surprise.

And this begs a big question. Where did all those vivid and terrifying images of eternal damnation and suffering really come from?
