Conditional Immortality: Biblical Proof of Annihilation in Hell

by D. Barry

It is clear that Plato and many Greek philosophers taught the soul was indestructible. However, the Scriptures teach the soul is destructible and immortality is only available when you accept the gospel. Who are you going to believe? The information in Conditional Immortality will convince you:

  • That the Traditional teaching about the fate of the lost (as eternal torment) is unbiblical and not hermeneutically correct.

  • That  Conditional Immortality (also known as Annihilationism) is biblically correct and that all unsaved souls will be literally destroyed in hell (the lake of fire).

  • That there is no “immortal soul” doctrine taught in the Bible. Immortality is a condition of being saved by belief in Jesus Christ and the debt he paid on the cross.

This is the CONTENTS PAGE to Conditional Immortality. Below you will find introductions and links to all 8 chapters. God Bless You!
