The Rob Bell debate: John Stott on hell fire, eternal torment and Christian annihilationism

‘The [hell] fire itself is termed “eternal” and “unquenchable,” but it would be very odd if what is thrown into it proves indestructible.  Our expectation would be the opposite: it would be consumed for ever, not tormented for ever.  Hence it is the smoke (evidence that the fire has done its work) which “rises for ever and ever.”’

~ John Stott
