What happens when you stop believing in Hell?


If your Reverend Carlton Pearson, an evangelical pastor in Tulsa, OK, you become a heretic. This American Life, a public radio show, did a story on Pearson last night which I happened to catch on my way out to dinner. I didn’t have anything to do so for an hour I rode around Nashville listening. Pearson’s story is of a man who rose over the last 20 years to a position of prominence in the evangelical community of Tulsa. A change in faith led to a mass exodus of his congregation and a new kind of ministry. If you have ever doubted the existence of Hell, if you think Pearson is surely a heretic, or if you are just a fan of public radio, check out this free podcast here.

  1. This American Life is by far one of the greatest programs in the history of radio. I hate that I don’t get to listen to it enough.
