How can a loving God create a place of torture? Why doesn’t God just hand out free passes to heaven? These are some questions that people struggle with when confronted with the reality of hell. Today’s guest, Anthony DeStefano, responds to these questions as he travels through the mysterious and misunderstood subject of hell. DeStefano unpacks what the Bible says on this subject and how this study should transform our passion for those who need to hear how they can choose not to go there.
