The doctrine of Hell, (whilst not always a popular conversation topic) has been a central theme of Christianity for a fairly long time. Directly or indirectly, I believe that what we believe about hell affects what we believe about God, Jesus; and the whole point of Creation really!
"Is God actually good and fair if he would send all these people to hell for eternity? Is our time here on Earth merely a testing ground so we can do good works to avoid hell? What about Divine Justice? Did Jesus die to save us from hell?" etc etc....
In my experience, when even beginning to look at these questions it automatically starts a snowball effect of similar or even more complicated questions.
If you have wrestled with any of the above, then this is the event for you!
