Preston Sprinkle Promotes Heresy on Hell

Months ago, Evangelical Dark Web reported on David Platt embracing the Revoice crowd in an apparent liberal coming out party. The event which inspired the question of David Platt coming out of the apostate closet was his participation in the Theology In The Raw Conference, the conference of Preston Sprinkle. Preston Sprinkle is a well known proponent of Revoice and side b theology. At his conference, Preston Sprinkle took the time to promote annihilationism and universalism as orthodox views on hell.

Annihilationism teaches that the soul ceases to exist as opposed to damnation. “Christian universalism” teaches that the blood of Christ pays the way for everyone to enter Heaven. Sprinkle tries to distinguish this from “unbiblical universalism.” For a Hindu to deny Christ but go to Heaven because of the saving work of Jesus is universalism with extra steps.

41 Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44 Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.

Matthew 25:41-46 NASB1995

There is a limit to atonement, if at the very least because Satan and his followers cannot be saved. Calvinists and Arminians can debate what that limit is, but both views deny the heresies that Preston Sprinkle promotes.

Ultimately, denying the reality of hell undermines the accomplishment of Jesus on the cross, by denying that which Jesus rescues us from. The gospel is about the good news that Jesus rescues us from the consequences of our sins and eventually removes our sin nature via glorification.

It is no surprise that someone who does not believe the Bible is authoritative on homosexuality also adopts (or in this case gives credence to) additional heresies.
