TEN REASONS NOT TO BELIEVE THE TEACHING OF ETERNAL TORTURE
#4: IT DECLARES THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST AS AN ABSOLUTE FAILURE
According to J. Preston Eby:
-"It is estimated that about one hundred and sixty billions of human beings have lived on the earth in the six
thousand years since Adam departed from Eden. Of these, the very broadest estimate that could be made with reason would be
that less than five billion were saints of God. This broad estimate would leave the immense aggregate of one hundred and fifty-five
billions (155,000,000,000) who went down into death without faith and hope in the only name given under heaven or among men
whereby we must be saved. Indeed, the vast majority of these never knew or heard of Jesus, and could not believe in Him of
Whom they had not heard. What, I ask, has become of this vast multitude, of which figures give a wholly inadequate idea? What
is, and is to be, their condition? Did God make no provision for these, whose condition and circumstances He must have foreseen?
Or did He, from the foundation of the world, make a wretched and merciless provision for their hopeless, eternal torment,
as many of His children claim?" ( The Law Of Circularity, J. Preston Eby )
-If what Evangelical Christianity teaches about eternal torture is true, then that means that almost every person
( well over 95% ) who has ever lived will be tortured forever. What does it say about God if 155,000,000,000 of the 160,000,000,000
people who have ever lived will be tortured forever? Could we call this a victory? Could we still call God all-powerful? Could
we still say that God is love? Could we still call Jesus the Savior of the world? NO! NO! NO! NO!
-THE HORRIBLE TEACHING OF ETERNAL TORTURE IS A SLAP IN THE FACE OF THE LOVE AND POWER OF GOD! This teaching
would cause us to come to the conclusion that the saving effort of the Lord Jesus Christ ( His death, burial, and resurrection
) WAS AN ABSOLUTE FAILURE! We know that Satan was able to deceive Eve, causing Adam to fall, bringing down the entire human
race. If the Lord Jesus Christ was only able to save about 3% of the human race, then who would be declared as the winner?
Well … SATAN OF COURSE! Most people have never thought about what was just said. They just keep on believing something
( eternal torture ) that does not glorify God and is not scriptural. BUT THANK GOD THAT THIS HORRIFIC TEACHING IS NOT TRUE!
-The scriptures declare to us in 1st Corinthians 15:22-28 … that in Adam ALL DIE, even so in
Christ shall ALL BE MADE ALIVE. BUT EVERY MAN IN HIS OWN ORDER: … THAT GOD MAY BE ALL IN ALL!!! The power of
God’s love is eternal! Its glory is supernal! HIS LOVE GOES BEYOND THE HIGHEST STAR, …
-AND REACHES TO THE LOWEST HELL!-
