due toisturbing stress This is not a convincing argument against annihlationsism it seems to be a way to force the focus off such verses so attention can be given to other scriptures Also the most convincing statement of eternal punishment found in Daniel was not handled well Daniel made a blunt statement that one Gay Travel Guide For Tops And Bottoms day all people will have eternal life or eternal punishment this is very convincing evidence that correctlyepicts the scenario of hell Yet Block The Irish Scissor Sisters does notrive this point home well instead he explains Daniel 122 must be interpreted primarily within its present context rather than lifting it out and exploiting it as a proof text for a later How to Think Like an Entrepreneur developed eschatology iv In this statement it seems Block has unnecessarilyiminished his primary evidence although context is crucial the context Mortelle Adle, Tome 15: Funky Moumoute does not negate that oneay all will have eternal life or eternal punishment It is fairly odd that his primary evidence is so scrutinized but elaborate space is given to apparent annihilation verses which are then simply ruled out as emotional outbursts within the article Thus it seems Block could have effectively proven his point by thoroughly addressing apparent texts on annihilationism and also by methodically using the content found in Daniel to prove his position and better The Events at Poroth Farm drive home his point Yarbrough s focus on Jesus teaching on hell is very compelling The section proves beyondoubt that Christ believed the most horrific of punishments awaited those who rejected him Jesus was not silent on this issue and so many citations on the teaching are available that hell is proven to not be an adiaphoravVarious sections of the gospels are persuasively brought fourth as evidence including the sermon on the mount in Matthew 57 Jesus teaching on the The Hare Hypothesis destiny of his opponents Matt 2313 and other references These verses indicate that Jesus taught of hell as a hideous place of torment for the lost Yet while proving that Jesusid teach the Super Rue (Super Rues Adventures Book 1) doctrine of hell Yarbroughid not completely eradicate annihilationism from the table with this chapter alone Yarbrough sites several texts where Jesus claims hell is a place of unuenchable fire where tormenting worms Atentado do notie and hideous arkness abounds Yet an annihilationist could easily argue that Christ taught the properties of hell were eternal but that the torment of hell would cease upon the annihilation of the individual Edward Fudge an annihilationist freuently argued against by Yarbrough oes just that and argues that permanent annihilation is a logical fulfillment for eternal punishment While Yarbrough presented great evidence that Jesus taught about a hell that was terrifying and physical he Open for Business (Rough play with anonymous men in a porn shop viewing room) (Rough play with anonymous men in a porn shop viewing room) (The Sex Shop Book 1) did not produce thoroughly convincing evidence that the occupants of hell were also eternal rather the evidence could be wrongly construed to claim the properties of hell were eternal and not the inhabitants Moo acknowledged that his purpose for addressing Paul s take on hell was to show that Paul teaches nothing to contradict the picture of hell viHis sectionoes just that While Paul oes not use the word hell his epistles are filled with references of God s wrath Likewise false notions of universalism are isproved Paul claimed an eternal ruin awaited the lost 2 Thess 18 9 Universalism is successfully refuted throughout this book and Moo proved that Paul s teaching went against universalism and stood inline with the traditional view of hell Beale s explanation of hell in Revelation is the argument that offers the best evidence against the notion of annihilationism While Fudge and others may find apparent loop holes in the vagueness of the Old Testament or the claim that Jesus was merely Les Lgendaires - Les Chroniques de Darkhell 01.

Of all the teachings of Christianity the Daddys Sweet Girl: A Dark Stepfamily Love Story doctrine of hell is easily the most troubling so much so that in recent years the church has been uietly tucking it away Rarely mentioned any in the pulpit it has faded throughisuse among evangelicals and been attacked by liberal theologians Hell is no longer only the target of those outside the church Today a isturbing number of professing Christians uestion it as well Perhaps than at any other time in history hell is under fire The implications of the historic view of hell make the popular alternatives annihilationism and universalism seem extremely T is a united front on the part of God In the second vantage point Peterson tackles the charge that God is unjust if he is sovereign over all things ecreeing the end from the beginning while holding man accountable for what they have one Peterson makes use of some passages which support the idea that the Bible teaches that God ecrees all things and still holds man accountable That eterminism and freedom are compatible That this is taught in Scripture is fairly easy to be seen But it is uestionable whether the Edwardsian compatibilism classical compatibilism is the best way to explain this philosophically that s just my beef The last vantage point is an expanded excurses on Moo s paradigm espoused in his chapter It is interesting to note that just as there is an already aspect to salvation and a not yet one there is also an already aspect to judgment and obviously a not yet one too It s like the unbeliever is on eath row On Thrones, Dominations death row they refer to the inmates asead men walking Since I Hela Cnau dead menon t walk the guards employ not consciously of course the biblical concept of the alreadynot yetBiblical scholar and theologian respected across enomination ties JI Packer writes about Universalism Will Everyone Ultimately be Saved chapter 8 Packer first efines universalism Jace's Pet discusses its motivation theifferent variations Universalists have come in and the importance of being able to respond to universalism in today s ecclesiastical environment He then moves on to an examination of universalism He offers the method by which his examination will proceed then the meaning of salvation according to Scripture and then according to several Universalists Next he examines the meaning of eternal punishment according to the Bible and then the Universalist understanding Next Packer looks at a huge motivating factor in this The Mistake (Off-Campus, debate the love of God andiscusses the biblical view and then the Universalist view Packer Piraten! does aecent job in this chapter but I think much needs to be one to efeat the Universalist Some proponents are far sophisticated in their promulgation of the Universalist thesis and Packer largely sticks to what I consider weaker exponentsIn his second chapter in the book Christpher Morgan looks at Annihilationism Will the Unsaved be Punished Forever chapter 9 After The Complete Guide To Surfing Your Best defining Annihilationism Morgan looks at the reasons why Annihilationists reject an endless hell He runs through a battery of their arguments giving strong albeit succinct rebuttals to such uestions as Can the Bible be interpreted to teach Annihilationism isn t an endless hell based on a Greek view of the soul wouldn t an endless hell be unjust wouldn t an endless hell be unloving and wouldn t an endless helliminish God s victory over evil Morgan shows that these are unwarranted reasons on which to base a rejection of hell while many are built on an unbiblical view of God s love or a view of that love to the exclusion of God s other attributes viz justice Lord etc and a From Tree Dwellings To New Towns defective and rather weak view of sinLastly Sinclair Ferguson writes on Pastoral Theology the Preacher and Hell This chapter would be better if it came as a CD with the book It is a rare treat to hear the Scottish Ferguson preach the word of God Ferguson speaks to pastors and reminds them that they are to preach on all that Scripture speaks of The job of a pastor isn t the job of a politician catering to your constituency telling them what they want to hear Ferguson guides the preacher through preaching a sermon on hell and answers other uestion of practical theology for example What are we to say at the funerals of unbelievers and to their relatives He concludes that Jesus preached on hell and to be faithful to him so must we pastorsOverall this was a good book for those who want to answer friends who are repulsed by the idea of hell and the traditional orthodox biblical teaching on it One mainrawback in my opinion was the absence of a philosophical rebuttal to much of the philosophical critiues of the traditional view The closest this book came to engaging in some of the philosophical issues was in Morgan s chapter on the three pictures of hell when he engaged in iscussions on free will I indicated above that I thought his approach was inadeuate A philosopher s eye would have been helpful in offering responses to the problem of evil and hell as well But espite this A Streetcar Named Desire. By Nicola Onyett (Philip Allan Literature Guide defect this book is still a good contribution to theebate One would be remiss not to include it in their library Had this book sitting on my shelf for a while and thought that it would merely be an academic book and a ry read I couldn t be wrong Surely it was academic but never on a level that made it impossible for an average Bible student to understandThe Book and Its ContentThe authors are top notch theologians in our ay who in this book respond to Annihilationism and Universalism while at the same time give a biblical and holistic picture of hell The subject of hell is sobering and terrifying As believers we know that thanks to Christ we have been saved from this awful fate which we should recognize we rightly eserve We likewise believe that all those without
the Gospel of Christ Gospel of Christ o not have a hope are under the wrath God and will everlastingly be under the wrath of God It is terrifying to think of that and we cannot without sympathy The Escape (Hendersons Boys, discard the emotional appeal of Universalists and Annihilationists The Bible is the sole infallible and highest authority for the Christian and if the Bible teaches that historical view of hell then my emotionso not matter and cannot settle the truth about hell It is as simple as thatThis book contains 10 chapters Lolo dealing containing among other things a historical survey about hell up to ouray chapter 1 by Albert Mohler Jr the OT and hell chapter 2 by Daniel I Block the Lord Jesus and Hell chapter 3 by Robert W Yarbough Paul and Hell chapter 4 by

examination of Universalism and its arguments chapter 8 by J I Packer an examination of Annihilationism and its arguments chapter 9 by Christopher W Morgan and finallyHell and pastoral theology chapter 10 by Sinclair FergusonThere is a ton to be learned in these chapters by the Bible student What is to be learned from this book should not only fill our heads with information but motivate us to share the Gospel with the lost because of the Range dreadful fate which faces them if they receive not Christ and His righteousnessThe reason we believe in the existence and everlasting nature of hell and of its punishment is simply because we believe that Holy Writ teaches it If it were not for the words of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who spoke often about hell than Heaven we would not believe in Hell because it is so repugnant to our fallen naturesInteractionThis work continually interacts with popular scholarship as it regards the nature of hell and the arguments for and against Annihilationism in Evangelicalism Authors most cited and interacted with include John Stott Clark Pinnock David Powys and Edward W Fudge The authors of this work continually argue that Annihilationistso not look at the whole portrayal of hell as presented by Scripture but rather choose to focus on and emphasize specific portrayals of hell with neglect to the rest This accusation is also leveled against those who hold to the traditional view of Hell who emphasize the punishment aspect of hell while neglecting to share the Gospel or Besorah Of Yahusha Natsarim Version declaring that hell is also a banishment not merely a separation of absence of God s present andestructionThe Destruction Picture of HellAn important and helpful study was Douglas J Moo s on the meaning of The Dauntless (Spy Girl Book 5) destruction He accuses Annihilationists of reading their preconceived meaning ofestruction as cessation of existence or as annihilation rather than Color of Jazz deriving its meaning from the whole of Scripture He shows how it is better and consistent with the total picture of hell in the Bible to understand the usage of words likeestruction to mean ruin p 106 and they the two Greek word groups olethros and apolymiapoleia usually refer to the situation of a person or object that has lost the essence of its nature or function p 105 rather than cessation of being In order to establish this he cites examples where the word group of Christmas Countdown destruction is used without implying cessation of existence For exampleland that has lost its fruitfulness olethros in Ezek 614 1416 to ointment that is poured out wastefully and to no apparent purpose apoleia in matt 268 Mark 144 to wineskins that can no longer function because they have holes in them appollymi in Matt 917 Mark 222 Luke 537 to coin that is useless because it is lost apollymi in Luke 159 or to the entire world that perishes as an inhabited world in the Flood 2 Pet 36 In none of these caseso the objects cease to exist they cease to be useful or to exist in their original intended state In other words these key terms appear to be used in general much like we use the world The Magic Fart (Pornucopia, destroy in the sentence The tornadoestroyed the house The component parts of that house The Fontana Book of Great Ghost Stories did not cease to exist but the entity house a structure that provides shelter for human beings ceased to exist p 105While the rhetoric of Annihilationism is strong when using their preconceived ideas ofestruction they fail when examined in light of Scripture and when Scripture is compared to Scripture The Apocalypse and HellRevelation 149 11 2010 15 are arguably some of the clearest passages on the eternality of hell and of its punishment GK Beale who is recognized as the author of one of the best commentaries on Revelation Her Winged Mates deals inetail with these passages while interacting fairly and respectfully with the other sideHe shows how the eternality of hell is parallel with the eternality of heaven Notice how in Revelation 1411 the torments of the lost who are said to have no rest Age of Ambition day or night are side by side with the bliss of the saints who are said to have rest from their labors in Revelation 1413 Notice also the close parallel between Revelation 1411 and 2010 Dr Beale lays a great stress on this and rightfully so The worshipers of the beast the reprobate will meet the same fate as their lord the unholy trinity Satan the beast and false prophet Dr Beale writes the temporal expressionay and night hemeras kai nyktos clearly refers to ceaseless activity that endures for eternity in 2010 but the identical sense is strongly implied in 715 and 48 In 715 the clause alludes to the worship of the whole congregation of saints in God s temple in the new creation at the end of the ageSuch worship and relief will continue forever p 118The parallel between the fate of the wicked and the righteous is also present in the fact that while the righteous will reign forever and ever Rev 225 on the other hand the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever Rev 1411 Notice that Scripture says that the smoke of their torment not A Mammals Notebook destruction goes up forever and ever The expression forever and ever is identical for both the righteous as well as the wicked Torment or punishment byefinition implies consciousness We The Berlin Airlift do not torment or punish a car or a rock but weo punish criminals Therefore It still remains true that Revelation 1411 and 2010 15 are the Achilles heel of the annihilationist perspective p 134Much could be said about this chapter but my advice is to simply pick up the book and read this chapter It is mind opening and very helpfulSummaryI loved the respectful tone of the authors and their respectful and fair interaction with the other side I enjoyed their fair and honest handling of the Scriptures I loved the fact that the authors freuently referred back to earlier portions of the book which tells me that the editor St. Solifer with Other Worthies and Unworthies did a great job at putting the book together Sometimes they even cite earlier portions Much could be learned from this book from both its theological as well as pastoral tone and I will nooubt return and look up the arguments and the texts again Lord willing I will try to update my commentary on chapter 32 of the 1689 sometime in the future with the insights I ve gained from this workMy final advice is tolle lege See here too I can t put it better than this reviewer id He sums up a lot of my frustrations with this book check out the Rethinking Hell podcast where contributors review each chapter from this book and explain the book s exegetical theological and historical weaknesses Here s a link to Part 1 you can find the other episodes on the website When Rob Bell released his awful Love Wins Zondervan asked Robert Peterson of Covenant Theo Seminary to cut the book I m currently his awful Love Wins Zondervan asked Robert Peterson of Covenant Theo Seminary to cut the book I m currently own to a 50 page booklet that could be uickly released to counter Bell s bile He and I basically Illicit Desires (Illicit, did the work of simplifying the book so that it would be easily accessible to the lay reader I remember sitting in a parking spot before a Cardinals game going line by line on a laptop cutting and simplifyingWell I ve finally gotten around to reading the original work for real If you want to write a theological volume on a particular topic this is the way too itFirst begin with a chapter that sets out the issue In this case it is aberrant views of hell One may recall that I recently reviewed a book that addressed inclusivism the idea that you Soul Drinker (Soul Drinkers, don t necessarily need to explicitly place trust in Christ to be saved This book addresses two other eschatological abnormalities annihilationism and universalism The former believes that those sent to hell will eventually cease to exist The latter that everyone eventually will go to heavenAfter setting out the issue you next tackle it from Scripture with chapters treating the OT Gospels Paul and Revelation Next chapters that summarize these findings for systematic and Biblical theology Then you take what you gleaned and apply it specifically to annihilationism and universalism Finally youraw out pastoral ramificationsDo all this and you ve got a great book as long as you rely on such capable scholars as Doug Moo Bob Yarbrough Jim Packer and Sinclair FergusonThe idea that God is love means people won t be in hell forever is absurd The idea that the belief people exist forever is Platonic not Biblical is likewise absurd I Foxmask (Saga of the Light Isles, don t want to get into the issues here but will be glad to follow up if one soesiresI should mention that if you want to address annihilationism in And His Letters Grew Colder detail get the volume Two Views of Hell by Edward Fudge and Robert A Peterson one of the editors of this volume. Nishment J I Packer compares universalism with the traditional understanding of hell Morganoes the same with annihilationism and Sinclair Ferguson considers how the reality of hell ought to influence preaching These examples offer some idea of this volume’s scope and thoroughnessHell may be under fire but its own flames cannot be uenched by popular opinion This book helps us gain a biblical perspective on what hell is and why we cannot afford to ignore it And it offers us a better understanding of the One who longs for all people to escape judgment and obtain eternal life through Jesus Christ. ,

L state of believers and unbelievers and Daniel 12 points to a time in the future when men will see their eternal fate p 62 In conclusion to the OT Emasculating Her Husband doctrine of hell Block statesthe general tenor of the Old Testament seems to reflect a conviction that people continue to live even after theyie Logic would suggest that any belief in the resurrection would be based on this suppositionIt is Three Short Ballbusting Stories difficult to imagine aoctrine of resurrection without an understanding of the continued existence of the person in some spiritual form after eath p 58 59In chapter three Robert Yarbrough handles the passages in the New Testament where Jesus talks about hell Yarbrough minces no words when it comes to attempts to alter the Biblical octrine of hellThe problem is that if Jesus spoke as freuently and The Secret Expedition directly about hell as Gospel writers claim then it may not be the Christina message that we end up proclaiming if we modify hisoctrine of posthumous existenceIf the historic Real-Life BPMN doctrine of hell is to be set aside it is most of all Jesus teachings that must be neutralized p 71 72Yarbrough first walks through the Gospels to see what Jesus actually said concerning hell It is clear that Jesus said too much about its reality eternality and conscious unending punishment to pass it off as temporary and merely used as a scare tactic Throughout his chapter Yarbrough interacts a lot with Edward W Fudge noted annihilationist Yarbrough honestly engages Fudge s argument of several passages presenting Fudge s position is his own words Fudge believes that while hell is real it will only be the experience of some for a short period of time p 77 78 and that the traditionalist notion of everlasting torment in hell springsirectly from that non biblical teaching p 83 That non biblical teaching is Greek Platonic philosophy After addressing the second claim Yarbrough responds by sayingTo A Collection of Previously Banned Victorian Erotica, DELUXE EDITION demonstrate Plato s influence it would be helpful to see at least a fair number of patristic authorities explicitly adducing Plato to help ground their interpretation of Jesus teaching on hell To my knowledge no one has produced such a studyIf our aim is to be faithful to Scripture we must face what Jesus teachings have been understood to assert by most biblical interpreters over many centuries cutting across a wide assortment of confessional andenominational settingsthe freuent first move of The Obvious discrediting the historical view by accusing it of early and Platonic origin lacks credible basis p 87In chapter four Douglas Mooeals with Paul on hell This is perhaps the strongest chapter in the book From Romans 118 211 Moo wonderfully points out that Death condemnation wrath and the curse a escend on human beings as a result of Adam s sin Human beings are therefore already in a state of perishing This condition is fixed forever for those who o not respond to God s grace in Christ and the work of his spirit But it is also clear that the condition that follows final judgment is an intensified form of what unbelievers now experience p 93Moo s statement here points to what he calls an inaugurated eschatology of judgment People come to Red Shines The Sun death as already condemned because of our relationship to Adam p 94 Rom 512 21 Moo also aptly notes that Paul and his readers assumed theoctrine of hell as so basic that he Generation did not need to provide extensive evidence for it p 95 Moo addresses passages like I Cor 1520 28Rom 518 Col 120 and 2 Thess 18 9 Moo s conclusion on Paul soctrine of hell is that he presents the judgment that comes on the wicked as the necessary response of a holy and entirely just God For Paul the A World Without Clothes doctrine of hell is a necessary corollary of theivine nature p 109In chapter six Christopher Morgan looks at the Sex, Purity, and the Longings of a Girls Heart doctrine of hell from a biblical theology stand point in the New Testament He looks at three picture of hell in ScripturePunishment is freuently portrayed as retribution judgment suffering and torment by fireDestruction is oftenescribed as perishing Pirate Gold death or the secondeathBanishment is commonly pictured as separation from the kingdom of God exclusion from the presence of God or being cut off from something living p 136Morgan bear out these three pictures in a number of ways First he walks briefly through every book and writer in the NT and touches on their passages on hell Then he fleshes out the three pictures of hell from the NT Finally he concludes by interpreting these three central pictures of hell Morgan states that these pictures characterize hell as eternal p 148 They also interweave with biblical portraits of God as Judge warrior and King p 149 50 Also the three pictures of hell flow naturally from biblical portraits of sin they also appear to illustrate the biblical octrine of the atonement they stand in contrast with biblical portraits of salvation and they also stand in contrast with biblical portraits of the kingdom of heaven p 150 In chapters eight and nine JI Packer and Christopher Morgan address the positions of universalism and annihilationism respectively Packer point out that most universalists concede that universalism is not Packer point out that most universalists concede that universalism is not taught in the Bible p 171 However it is argued that the biblical revelation of God s love to his world entails a universal salvific intention that is a purpose of saving everybody and that sooner or later God must achieve that purpose p 171 For annihilationism or as it is preferred to be called conditionalism Morgan efines it as the belief that God has created all human beings only potentially immortal Upon being united to Christ believers partake in the Minotaur Lust divine nature and receive immortality Unbelievers never receive this capacity to live forever and ultimately cease to exist p 196 Perhaps the best argument against this view is found in Revelation 2015 which reads If anyone s name was not found written in the book of life he was thrown into the lake of fire p 218 In the final chapter of the book Sinclair Ferguson offers some concluding pastoral remarks Ferguson admits honestly that the very thought of an eternal hell of suffering for people is emotionally intolerable p 220 However we must grapple with the reality that hell exists this is the testimony of the Scriptures of the apostles and of the Lord Jesus himself p 220 Ferguson calls preachers of the Word to preach at least four things about hell from ScriptureHell is realHell is vividlyescribed in the pages of the New TestamentHell though prepared for the A Game of Unchance devil and his angels is shared by real human beingsMost important in expounding and teaching the biblical teaching on hell we must emphasize that there is a way of

your heart and mind on theoctrine of hell I cannot recall ever reading a book so full of logical fallacies and complete misrepresentations and objective factual errors The history of the The Bellringers Bedside Companion doctrine of hell is misrepresented freuently the repeated claim that Arnobius was the first annihilationist is objectively false being traceable in the Old Testament Apocrypha umran the New Testament Ignatius of Antioch Irenaeus the Didache Pseudo Barnabas and several Rabbinic texts and the claim that it was condemned by the 5th ecumenical council is completely false see here Universalism is also well attested in the Patristic era Clement of Alexandria Origen Grgeory of Nyssa Isaac the Syrian Maximus the Confessor Diodore of Tarsus et al The

any actual Make Ink: A Foragers Guide to Natural Inkmaking demonstration of the actual arguments of annihilationists and universalists is staggering The strawman tactics and ad hominems employed by scholars who are typically viewed with admiration by evangelicals is truly unfortunateThe challenges of those who reject eternal torment is not an attack on orthodoxy or a reinventing of hell as the subtitle suggests It is an honest wrestling with the text of Scripture the history of the church systematic theology and logic On all fronts eternal torment cannot be claimed as the exclusive historical orthodox position Instead of actually assessing the actual evidence presented which is immense the authorsismiss their critics as either liberals who Clandestino: In Search of Manu Chao dismiss the bible for sentimental reasons or simply eccentric scholars who are overreachingEach essayeserves its own review to unpack all the fallacies and misrepresentations But I am not prepared to walk through each one But overall this is an example of what happens when adherence to the party line a system of assertions overshadows the examination of the evidence If this is the best scholarly

Editors Morgan and Peterson assemble a fine group of biblical scholars to write on the historicoctrine of eternal hell from various perspectivesAl Mohler writes a passionate account of the history of hell s The Vanishing Hours disappearance in chapter 1 Modern Theology The Disappearance of Hell This story is fascinating A monument to autonomy See as exegesis and submission to Scripture get repeatedly tossed out the window for eisogesis and submission to fallen speculative gut feelings about what a good God would or would notoNext preeminent Old Testament Scholar Daniel Block provides an excellent exegetical look at The Old Testament on hell chapter 2 Bock admits that there indeed very little in the entire Old Testament on hell which is interesting since the OT God is supposed to be the wrathful God But when it Horse Sense does speak on the subject of the afterlife and hell the meaning is hard to miss The Old Testament also provides some good background for entering the New Testament and seeing the fuller revelation which is interesting since Jesus is supposed to be so wuving yet he speaks of hell than anyone else in the entire BibleRobert Yarbrough provides an excellent treatment of what I mentioned in my parenthetical comment in the last paragraph Jesus on Hell chapter 3 Yarbrough gathers together almost everything Jesus said on the topic concluding that a view of hell as conscious eternal retributive punishment is the view that best fits theata Yarbrough also Totally Regressed (An ABDL Story) deals briefly with the charge that a Platonic view of the soul gives rise to understanding Jesus as teaching the above This view isealt with swiftly and convincingly in favor of the negation of it Yarbrough counters the emotional objection to hell by pointing out that Jesus The Making of Goldeneye didn t find it offensive and we shouldn t try to be holy than JesusIt is apropos that Pauline scholar Douglas Moo would write on Paul on Hell chapter 4 Moo tackles the charge that Paul barely speaks of hell for a loss Moo uses the inaugurated alreadynot yet eschatology of Paul as a paradigm for properly viewing his statements on judgment and the afterlife Interestingly as glorification for the believer is but a continuation of the salvation already begun hell and perdition is the continuation of a process those outside of Christ are already but not yet in see Bavinck Vos Kline etc for exposition on the alreadynot yet teaching in Scripture Moo also places Paul properly in the line ofescent from orthodox Judaism not Hellanism as some suppose The background for this is illuminated even by remembering the preparatory work Block Women of the Otherworld Series Collection (Women of the Otherworld, did in chapter 2 Mooiscusses the apparently universalist and annihilationist passages in Paul and undercuts them all especially annihiliationismPremiere scholar *on the apocalypse Gregory Beale is perfectly chosen to write about the *the

Christopher Morgan writes on Biblical Theology Three Pictures of Hell Beforeoing so though he presents a basic overview of hell in the New Testament showing a pervasive and consistent teaching on the Border Peel (Marjorie, doctrine in almost every NT book Morgan then offers his three pictures of hell as i punishment iiestruction and iii banishment After presenting these three predominant pictures he shows how they all hang together none of them excluding the other No one single picture should Mistress of Souls (Prophecy of the Sisters Novella dominate the other ones This ensures weo not stretch any one image beyond what is warranted by the entire text of Scripture From there Morgan shows the systematic implications of the three pictures The three pictures interweave with biblical portraits of God God as judge warrior and king The pictures also flow from the biblical view of sin the atonement and the kingdom of heaven All of this helps one interpret the three pictures of hell
