I take for granted sometimes that many people, if they read the Bible at all, just read it in the English translation. It is easy for me, these days, to read Chan’s objections and know that they are not sound, because I can see the holes in them. But it hasn’t always been that way. For well over a decade, I did not know how to dispute with someone who taught eternal torment. Although I was annihilationist in my beliefs, there was still a tiny bit of doubt in my mind, a theological splinter, that eternal torment could be true after all.
