More fun from Wycliffe
Apparently, '95% of people facing hell unless the message of the gospel is brought to them.' - Richard Turnbull, principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.
To be fair, if you are of that mindset then that must be true. But, more excitingly, this is the welcome return of hell fire preaching!
Just to point out one issue from Wycliffe's website:
We offer a wide range of ministerial, academic, full-time and part-time theology courses that enable Christians to exercise their ministry more effectively in...the academy.
Now, and I think I am being serious here, what percentage of the academy are facing hell?
And if I am not being serious, be fair: you've got Christopher Hitchens on religion...
Ok, here are some serious reports:
