Annihilationism – Part 1

flame of fire

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.

Silencing the Word of God

I am sick of people using the term, “legalism”, to silence those who defend doctrine or defend solid biblical positions. Or using the term, “Pharisee”, in the same way.

“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3)

The foundation is the word of God. The word of God is comprised of God’s specific, written, inerrant words.

Consider the importance of God’s specific words. “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” (John 14:23) He continually talks about the keeping of His words. Many think this is just about His commandments or His teachings or His general ideas.

But the Bible is consistently specific about the importance of the actual words that have been written. As if specific words were the indispensable foundation blocks of His teachings.

The modern Evangelical church really doesn’t believe this. Oh, they say they do. But not really. They think it is the teachings or principles that are the foundation as opposed to the words themselves. Or the “essence of the word” that is important.

Whatever the heck “essence” means.
