New to programming, currently working on my Masters Degree in ISM, focusing on Programming languages.

I'm also a Christian, though I was never raised in a Christian home, I came to my faith through learning and studying apologetics ... I also have become a believer in 'apocatastasis' in the last couple years.

comment Is Hell eternal, or do some/all escape it?
I absolutely believe it is. About 5 years ago, I came to believe in Apocatastasis, long before Bell's book. I think he could have gone farther, but thought it was a decent endeavor.

You forgot the 3rd school of thought, Apocatastasis, aka universalism.

comment How does free will fit with the doctrine of predestination?
Having read "Bondage of the Will" by Martin Luther, I think our definition of free will is off ... Check it out, I think it's a must-read for Christians.

comment Without God is there only evil?
I agree with you David ... Because God exists, everything else exists, including evil (a byproduct of creation). If God were to never have existed, nothing would exist, including evil. Because everything (life, matter, energy, astronomical constants and events) is sustained by God, then if God were to cease to exist, so would everything else.
