TEN REASONS NOT TO BELIEVE THE TEACHING OF ETERNAL TORTURE
#7: IT POINTS TO A VICTORIOUS DEVIL, AND TO SIN AS FINALLY TRIUMPHANT OVER GOD
According to Thomas Allin:
-"THE question of Universalism is usually argued on a basis altogether misleading, i.e., as though the point
involved was chiefly, or wholly, man's endless suffering. Odious and repulsive to every moral instinct, as is that dogma,
it is not the turning point of this controversy. The vital question is this, that the popular creed by teaching the perpetuity
of evil, points to a victorious Devil, and to sin as finally triumphant over God. It makes the corrupt, nay, the bestial
in our fallen nature to be eternal. It represents what is foulest and most loathsome in man, i.e., the most obstinate sin
as being enduring as God Himself. It confers the dignity of immortal life on what is morally abominable. It teaches perpetual
Anarchy, and a final Chaos. It enthrones Pandemonium as an eternal fact side by side with Paradise; and, gazing over its fetid
and obscene abysses, is not afraid to call this the triumph of Jesus Christ, this the realization of the promise that God
shall be "All in All"." ( Christ Triumphant, Thomas Allin )
-Could we come to any other possible conclusion than this? How could it be said that God is victorious over
the Devil, sin, death, hell, and evil if the majority of all the people ever born will never be delivered from these vices?
How can these things co-exist as long as God Himself in light of the plain declaration of scripture that declares that God
shall be all in all ( everything to everyone )? We would be left with no other conclusion than to declare evil as victorious
over good. THE POWERS OF DARKNESS WOULD BE ABLE TO FOREVER GLOAT DUE TO THEIR VICTORY! They would be able to claim that they
were able to take over 97% of God’s creation, bringing them into an eternal nightmare of torture.
-SEARCH YOUR HEART! SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES! If you are honest with yourself and the scriptures you will surely
begin to see the ABSOLUTE STUPIDITY of the teaching of eternal torture. THERE IS NO WAY TO DECLARE THAT GOD IS BOTH ALL IN
ALL AND THE GOD OF ETERNAL TORTURE AS WELL. These two thoughts drastically oppose one another. It is not possible for both
of these statements to be true. Either the apostle Paul was lying when he said that God would be all in all ( 1st
Corinthians 15:28 ), or Evangelical Christianity is lying in declaring that the vast majority of the human race will be tortured
forever. I would rather believe the inspired words of the apostle Paul than to side with the lie of Evangelical Christianity.
If this teaching ( eternal torture ) is a lie, which it is, then we should reject it no matter how many people believe it.
-THAT SETTLES IT!-
