The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 17, 2018, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.
The majority of conservative evangelical thinkers still believe in an orthodox hell as do most of the billion Roman Catholics in the world. This includes eternal damnation and torture in a lake of fire and brimstone. It all sounds frighteningly obscure, absurd and obscene. And for the most part, they all wish it were not true, or at least that they don't and won't go there.
Some are afraid to deny the existence of hell, because that would make Jesus, whom most see as little less than a divine "fire escape" and whom they worship, unnecessary and that is anathema above all anathemas. So?.... Christian orthodoxy needs hell to be orthodox, so that means we need to reconsider orthodoxy and ortho/dogma anew. We're doing so all of the month of June here at All Souls. Lets reconsider what we believe and why we believe it and do those beliefs add to or subtract from the quality of life and consciousness!
