This week I interviewed, for the second time,Martin Zender. Martin is an author and preacher who is not afraid to think, and talk about some topics many preachers shy away from. I really appreciate his honest search for truth and I’m sure you will find this interview very interesting, with more than a few points you might not have thought to much about before.
One of the main points Martin is well known for his his belief that, according to the Bible, God’s plan is to reconcile all of mankind to himself. For many this seems to be a huge theological problem, as the Bible also talks a lot about eternal torment, separation and fiery furnaces. I shared with Martin the concern many Christians are faced with, when they hear someone saying that in the end God will reconcile all to himself, is that it seems to minimize, or even remove the need of Jesus. Martin shares his response to that question in the interview, and also throws out a lot of other though provoking ideas.
The interview is below. I hope you enjoy it. I have also added the first interview I did with Martin below the current interview as well for those who missed it. OK, enjoy listening in on our conversation
