I'M A LOSER: Middle America and Losing Hell: Loser Keith, John Shelby Spong & Carlton Pearson

In this episode, we take our first phone call from a loser, discuss middle America, and whether losing hell is a good idea or not.
I don't know if there is a heaven or hell. I used to be certain there was, but these days I am not so sure. After reading the scriptures in context more than ten times, I don't see it speak of a heaven, but of a recreated earth, and there doesn't seem to be a hell, but more of an existence apart from God. Which for many of us reading this post, probably sounds pretty good.
I don't claim to be a theologian, but I used to. I don't claim to be well educated, but I used to think I was. I have already been labeled a heretic by my old church, received hate mail and fighting messages from pastors, all while joyfully accepted my apostate reality, but am I going to hell? I don't think I should care anymore. At least, I don't want to.
I have recently come to the conclusion that trying to live like there is a hell is of no help to the fulfillment or joy to be found in
