about rhconf19

The sixth annual, international Rethinking Hell conference will be held on August 16-17, 2019, at Emmanuel Enid Church in Enid, Oklahoma (Fri 5pm–Sat 6pm CDT). This will be an occasion for Christians to consider and discuss the nature, duration, and purpose of hell in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Speakers include: Dr. Johnathan Pritchett, VP for Academics at Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary; Dr. Marvin Jones, Assistant Professor of Theology at Louisiana College; Lindsay Brooks, former Staff Apologist at; and Christopher M. Date, editor of Rethinking Hell and A Consuming Passion.

This year, the theme of the conference is
“Hell and the Gospel.”

Christians generally agree that the gospel or “good news” is the message of Jesus’ life, substitutionary death, and resurrection, by which he saves sinners and secures eternal life for them.

Speakers will explore how this should inform Christians’ understanding of what they have been saved from, and what final punishment or consequences await the unsaved in hell.

A variety of related questions may be discussed, including (but not limited to):

  • How essential to the gospel is a correct view of hell?
  • What is the nature of life and death in light of the gospel?
  • How is immortality brought to light through the gospel (2 Tim 1:10)?
  • How does Christ accomplish redemption in his atoning work?
  • How should the incarnation of God in Jesus inform a Christian view of hell?
  • What are the implications of the New Heavens and New Earth when it comes to hell?
  • How do views of hell impact the sharing and defense of the gospel?

Join us as we reason together from the Scriptures and sharpen one another as iron sharpens iron, testing conventional and controversial views of hell in the light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.
