1. Interesting stuff. Not many people know that such a variety of beliefs about hell existed in the early church. It completely gives the lie to the notion that religion was just invented as a way to make everyone behave with the threat of everlasting damnation.

    And by the way, there’s an advertisement at the bottom of the right sidebar which shows us a young lady in what appears to be a partially see-through blue shirt splashing about in a pond or some sort of body of water.

      That advertisement is taken care of. Thanks, Mitchell.

      Indeed, there was a lot of varying views in the early Church.

      You are indeed correct. Judaism did not have a real view of the afterlife and apparently, Christianity was sketchy for a while. I have a whole series on this lined up this week.
