A false doctrine called, Annihilationism, is growing in popularity within Christian circles.
It is the belief that those who are spiritually lost will not face eternal punishment.
This doctrine claims that a lost person might face God at the last judgment but will not suffer for all eternity. Instead, that person will be destroyed once and forever with no further consciousness.
No everlasting fire, pain, regret, torment, hell, nor Lake of Fire. Just lights out and good night.
Although sometimes known by other names, this has long been a popular belief held by the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Seventh-Day Adventists and others.
The doctrine of eternal punishment has always been a big problem for Christian apologists. It is one of the most common excuses that people use for rejecting the gospel.
