Chris Date vs. William Albrëcht (Catholic) on Hell

Chris Date vs. William Albrëcht (Catholic) on Hell

Having promoted the biblical view of final punishment in debates with two fellow Reformed theologians, I’ve been given the opportunity to do so in a debate with a Roman Catholic, William Albrëcht.1Stay tuned to Rethinking Hell for a possible announcement in the near future; I may have an opportunity to engage in my first live, in-person debate defending conditionalism, this time with a well-known Arminian here in the Pacific Northwest. Calvinist, Armininan, Catholic… What’s next? Raised in a non-religious household, William became a Protestant and, later, converted to Roman Catholicism. He has a B.A. in Theology, is an apologist on staff at The Catholic Legate, and has published many videos on his YouTube channel.
Our debate will be webcast live on “Healing X Outreach” talk radio, on Saturday, August 24th, at 1pm Eastern, 10am Pacific. Listeners are encouraged to listen live and call in with questions at 1-347-934-0379. The title of the debate is, “Hell: Eternal Suffering or Annihilation?” The format will be as follows:
