6 I. Modern Teaching On Hell

7 Modern Teaching Seventh Day Adventist  Man is not created immortal – only conditionally immortal  Righteous raised in immortal bodies  Wicked raised in mortal bodies  Become extinct in hell.

8 Modern Teaching Seventh Day Adventist Jehovah’s Witnesses  Deny immortality of the soul  God annihilate the wicked at the point of death

9 Modern Teaching Seventh Day Adventist Jehovah’s Witnesses Edward Fudge

10 Ed Fudge Published 1982 Call Himself A Conditionalist “..the wicked, following whatever degree and duration of pain God may justly inflict, will finally and truly die, perish and become extinct for ever and ever” (p. 425)  Man is immortal – only conditionally  Wicked raised in mortal bodies  Punished for a while in hell  Then, become extinct Annihilation

11 Modern Teaching Seventh Day Adventist Jehovah’s Witnesses Edward Fudge Homer Hailey

12 This is a follow up to Hailey’s Commentary on Daniel, A Prophetic Message, published in This companion volume deals with God as ‘the king of the nations’ (Jer. 10:7) and His judgment upon nations and individuals. The main focus of the work is the final judgment and fate of the unrighteous, according to what the New Testaments says and does not say. Hailey reaches the interesting conclusion that for the wicked the soul ceases to exist, as it is destroyed in hell. Foreword by La Gard Smith of David Lipscomb University.” Published 2003 Prepublication Ad: Homer Hailey

13 Hailey’s Book Teaches: “These illustrations reveal the meaning of ‘consume,’ and what the scriptures mean by the phrase, ‘Our God is a consuming fire.’ It meant total and complete destruction from the face of the earth” (138). “If they serve as an example, what do they teach except that those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire are to exist no more?” (142) “…all four lead to the same conclusion: By being destroyed in hell, he loses his body and soul; in Gehenna he dies the second death (cf. Rev. 21:8)” (150). “Paul described the resurrected body of the righteous (1 Cor. 15:5-58); but nowhere did any apostle describe the resurrected body of the wicked…” (151).

14 Hailey’s Book Teaches: “The first death pertained to the physical life and death; the second pertained to the end of each. Death and Hades and the wicked, those whose names were not written in the book of life, existence came to an end in the lake of fire” (178). WHAT IS SAIDWHAT IS NOT SAID “That they all burn forever” (139) “Nothing about burning for ever, or facing a future burning” (146) “That the soul burns eternally” (156) “That the people are tormented day and night for ever and ever” (181)
