The goal of this paper is to weigh in the light of Scripture the best arguments set forth by annihilationists, those such as John Stott who argue that we should understand the Bible literally when it speaks of the damned as "perishing" or suffering "destruction." Stott assumes that these words speak of annihilation.
The world as we know it will come to an end, and judgment is coming. The article explains what this judgment is about.
This article discusses the Day of Judgment. It addresses questions concerning who the judge will be, how God can judge all people at the same time, and why a judgment is required also for those who have already passed away.
Once Christians were very familiar with the image of the Last Judgment. Yet today, many wonder what it has to do with the gospel message of the love of God, or with the Jesus of the Gospels who lived and died for the salvation of sinners. However, it is the Jesus of the Gospels who makes it clearer than anyone else that He will sit in judgment over people. He will distinguish the innocent from the guilty as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats in a mixed herd (Matthew 25).
What happens to our good works in the age to come? Can our good works survive the fire of God's judgment? Are our good works relevant for the coming glory? And what about the "reward" for our good works in the new heaven and earth? Are there differences of reward in heaven? This article addresses all these question.
This article looks at the purpose and the basis of the last judgment.
