Will Hell Eventually Be Abolished?

By George W. Sarris

It's not actually a debate.  It's part of the Mars Hill Forum series where two opposite sides of a controversial question are addressed.

The format is simple and straightforward.  Each side is given 12 minutes to present its case.  A 20-minute discussion between the presenters follows.  Then the audience is given the opportunity to ask questions for about 45 minutes.

In this case, the question is about the nature and duration of Hell.
