Storyline

If God is our pure, all-loving creator, can he really turn his back on sinners and allow them to suffer for eternity in hell? Where did this vision of hell come from? Is it possible we've got hell wrong? Or are recent challenges to the traditional view merely an attempt to avoid the inevitable? "Hellbound?" is a feature-length documentary that seeks to discover why we are so bound to the idea of hell and what our views on hell reveal about how we perceive God, justice, the Bible and, ultimately, ourselves.

A Good But Not Perfect Look at Hell
9 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If God is our pure, all-loving creator, can he really turn his back on sinners and allow them to suffer for eternity in hell? Where did this vision of hell come from? Is it possible we have got hell wrong? Or are recent challenges to the traditional view merely an attempt to avoid the inevitable?

This documentary involves talking to a lot of people about hell, from pastors to Westboro members, to atheists.... to Gwar. Some believe, some do not, some argue that hell cannot be eternal if it exists because that is incompatible with a loving god.

Of all the various concepts of hell -- which is right? Are any right? I think this provided a good overview of the problem, but never really got to the meat and potatoes. Are some theories better than others? Is the whole idea just not possible to sort out? I think a bit more depth would be nice...
