When certain religious people hear us preaching Jesus Christ will reconcile all people to God, in the fullness of times, they wax indignant in their self-righteousness and often protest like Paul Carrington did in his recent letter: “So, live life as if there’s no God, and in the end I’ll be redeemed because, after all, there’s no eternal punishment.”
We asked Paul (and all who leap to such unfounded and reckless conclusions), “Because there is no such thing as punishment that never ends, why do you presume there is no punishment?”
We look forward to the answer, but won’t hold our breath. What answer is there to “checkmate”?

The Lord Jesus Christ, King of kings, Lord of lords, is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He is doing a work with everyone, and there is no person who is condemned to burn in an eternal hellfire, but all are judged to be made alive in Christ. We share writings and correspondences that address the false doctrines and attitudes that hold men in bondage. The Truth is vindicated and victorious.
Another theory we now debunk is one that mercifully puts the wicked out of their misery, asserting it’s highly unreasonable to subject any living creature to endless torment. This is a more appealing alternative and reflects more favorably on God, Who is Love by Nature, but it’s still a lie and falls far short of His glory.
“Christians” use the Scriptures to preach or propogate the doctrine of eternal hellfire. However, what is the Bible truly saying? Is it saying that people will burn forever in hell? Another author has compiled some Scriptures that define the meaning of “forever” and “eternal.” This sheds a whole new light on this matter, making for a very different, and glorious, picture.
