The book entitled "Four Views on Hell", Edited by William Crockett, give us an interesting view of how the doctrine of "hell" is seen within the Evangelical Church. Which of these views do you see as being Biblically correct? 1 LITERAL VIEW: "Many Christians still hold to a literal understanding of hell, that it is a place of eternal smoke and flames. John F. Walvoord is a strong advocate of this view" 2. METAPHORICAL VIEW: "William V. Crockett defends a metaphorical view, seeing hell as a place of eternal conscious punishment but not necessarily as being a literal fire." 3. CONDITIONAL IMMORTALITY VIEW: "Clark H. Pinnock articulates the view of conditional immortality, that God eventually destroys the souls of the wicked rather than punishing them endlessly." 4. PURGATORIAL VIEW: "Zackary J. Hayes explains the thinking that undergirds the doctrine of Purgatory. Evangelicals will have a greater appreciation for why this doctrine developed centuries ago in the church" +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I myself am an advocate for the first view. However, I am not fully convinced that the "flames of Gehenna" are to be understood in a literal sense.
