We encourage those who ardently follow anyone who denies the doctrine of eternal damnation to read the posting carefully. Scriptural interpretation comes not from our human intellect but from the illuminating power of the Holy Spirit…Who is not the Author of confusion. Jeff and Cindy
Yes, you read the title of this posting correctly. There are teachers who are now teaching that there is no eternal damnation of the unbelievers. How sad it is to see once faithful teachers of reformed biblical doctrine sink ever deeper into the miry pit of falsehood.
In the Bible, “perish” doesn’t mean we simply cease to exist as these latest teachings instruct. To be sure, that’s what most people would like for it to mean. However, letting the Bible serve as its own interpreter, we learn that “perish” means to come under constant torment forever separated from God because of our sin. Contrary to merely ceasing to exist, Scripture instead paints a very different – and much uglier picture – likening it to a furnace of fire, outer darkness, weeping & gnashing of teeth, and unceasing misery. The nonbeliever’s misery will not end on Thursday the 20th of October 2011.
Don’t let anyone erroneously tell you that when you die, all your troubles will go away after a little bit of suffering. Being sinful, we’d like to believe that fairy tale, wouldn’t we? Thankfully, God is honest with us in His Word about our predicament.
The Bible declares The wages of sin is death [Romans 6] – and the spiritual death God has in view is eternal.
He who has ears to hear, let him hear…
(1 John 2:19) They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
To God Be The Glory!
