Peter Geach on Hell

We cannot be Christians, followers of Christ, we cannot even know what it is to be a Christian unless the gospels give at least an approximately correct account of Christ’s teachings. And if the Gospel account is even approximately correct, then it is perfectly clear that according to that teaching many men are irretrievably lost… It is less clear, I admit, that the fate of the lost according to that teaching is to be endless misery rather than ultimate destruction. But universalism is not a live option for Christians. – Peter Geach (Providence and Evil)
