ASK Episode 3 – Who in the “Heck” Built Hell?

In Episode 3 of the ASK series, Rev. Dr. Johanna Wagner explores the question: “When was Hell built?” Johanna goes through the examples (or lack thereof) of Hell as it appears in the Bible; Jesus has spoken of Hell a few times, and Johanna puts his thoughts in context. Sarah ponders what she herself has learned about Hell growing up with a religious education, and Johanna points out how Presbyterians' don't really talk about Hell, thanks in part to the Protestant Reformation. Regardless of our mortal understanding, Rev. Johanna quotes Jesus' idea of a one “true” and unforgivable sin: “Blaspheming the Holy Spirit.”
