OSU to debate Hell & God’s Love

By Oregon State University Socratic Club

The Socratic Club at OSU will sponsor a debate on the topic, “Hell and the Love of God” on Wednesday, April 10, in Milam Auditorium (Milam 026) on the OSU campus at 7 p.m. The speakers are Todd Miles and Christian Piatt.

Todd Miles is Associate Professor of Theology and Hermeneutics at Western Seminary in Portland. After earning the B.S. and M.S. degrees from Oregon State in nuclear engineering and spending several years in nuclear research, his interest in religious issues led him to pursue a Ph.D. in theology and biblical interpretation. His latest book, A God of Many Understandings? The Gospel and Theology of Religions, explores the relationship of Christianity to other faiths.  In his fourth appearance at Socratic Club, Dr. Miles will argue that belief in Hell is compatible with belief in a God of love.

Christian Piatt is an author, editor, speaker, musician and spoken word artist. Christian is the creator and editor of the Banned Questions book series, which include Banned Questions About the Bible and Banned Questions About Jesus.  He blogs on “Patheos” and is a contributor to the Huffington Post.  He will argue that the existence of Hell is incompatible with the biblical doctrine of a God of love.
