Pilgrimage panderer Steve Ray has some video clips up at his site (link). In the first video (starting around 4:50 into the clip, with the key portion beginning at 7:00), you can hear Steve Ray discussing the idea that Jesus’ reference to “the gates of hell” is a reference to a deep crevice near the mouth of a cave at the back of a temple. It was sad to see one of the members of the pilgrimage spouting back the idea that the cave was the “gates of hell.” The folks on the pilgrimage do seem very sincere, and it seems clear that Steve Ray is misleading them.
