Sermonette: Dante Aligheri’s Inferno, Heaven, and The Real Hope



Dante’s book, ‘The Divine Comedy’ has affected views that many in the West have about heaven and hell.  Is the Gehenna fire of the Bible like Dante’s ‘inferno’?  Have pagan influences given people the wrong impression of Hades? Is heaven like Dante’s ‘paradiso’?  Will those who are currently non-believers be eternally punished? Do humans have an immortal soul? From New Zealand, John Hickey answers those questions and discusses the real hope of the resurrection.

Here is a link to the sermonette, which is found at the ContinuingCOG YouTube channel:  Dante Aligheri’s Inferno, Heaven, and The Real Hope
