[The first account of my journey appeared in a blog post on July 21, 2014. Later, I was asked to contribute my story for a chapter in A Consuming Passion.  I was very happy for that opportunity because, by then, I had moved on from my original “agnosticism” concerning the nature of hell, although I believed that the Bible taught annihilation more clearly than any other of the alternatives. I had become thoroughly convinced of this and no longer needed to claim agnosticism. I was also happy for the opportunity to outline the biblical data which led me to my conviction. I have therefore posted an excerpt of the article, containing a more extended account of “Stage 5 of my journey.”]
