In this episode, I ask Dr. Epperly if he’s “saved.” The ensuing conversation covers how we imagine the afterlife, and can it have this-worldly consequences? Is survival after death the most important thing in life, or is this life our calling, with survival after death a lesser motivation? Is our survival individual and grounded in one particular religion, or is it relational and potentially universal? Does the fear of hell square well with a God of love?
There are intimations throughout that we must examine the possibility of universal salvation–and we will–next week.
