Life has been busy for the Clark household. I started a new job, my wife is pregnant (It’s a girl!), we just bought our first house, and on top of all of that I am in school. I bring this up to explain my absence on here, YouTube, and social media. I still haven’t evenContinue reading “What the Bible Says About Hell”

The Atonement and Rethinking Hell
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Chris Date from Rethinking Hell on the Help Me Believe Podcast. Chris is a Reformed (Calvinist) theologian that holds to a conditionalist view of hell.
