Dan Kimball writes, "I am passionate about hell. That sounds odd -- but I am not passionate about hell itself, but passionate about studying what it is because of the seriousness of what it is. I am passionate about it as I don't want anyone to experience it. Sort of like when you study cancer, you are doing so in order to learn how to have people relieved of it not just because you like studying it. So my passion for studying hell is because of (my) care for people ... I am consumed with hell ... because I don't want to see anyone experiencing hell. I know nothing rests on me, as it is all about Jesus, the cross, atonement, faith and salvation which saves from hell. But the way you see things happen in the New Testament is that God uses people to teach and speak about Jesus, the gospel, salvation, etc. so we do have our part in it."
