Two Tribes (Annihilation Mix) - Various - Fuse Presents Hell
Annihilationism also known as extinctionism or destructionism  is the belief that those who are wicked will perish or be no more. It states that after the final judgment some human beings and all fallen angels all of the damned will be totally destroyed so as to not exist, or that their consciousness will be extinguished,  rather than suffer everlasting torment in hell often synonymized with the lake of fire.
Annihilationism is directly related to the doctrine Two Tribes (Annihilation Mix) - Various - Fuse Presents Hell conditional immortalitythe idea that a human soul is not immortal unless it is given eternal life. Annihilationism asserts that God will eventually destroy the wicked, leaving only the righteous to live on in immortality.
Some annihilationists e. Seventh-day Adventists believe God's love is scripturally described as an all-consuming fire  Two Tribes (Annihilation Mix) - Various - Fuse Presents Hell that sinful creatures cannot exist in God's presence.

Annihilationism stands in contrast to both belief in eternal torture and suffering in the lake of fireand the belief that everyone will be saved universal reconciliation or simply "universalism". The belief in Annihilationism has appeared throughout Christian historybut has always been in the minority. Earlier in the 20th century, some theologians at the University of Cambridge including Basil Atkinson supported the belief.
Caird Additionally, the Church of England 's Doctrine Commission reported in that "[h]ell is not eternal torment", but "non-being". Some Protestant and Anglican writers have also proposed annihilationist doctrines. Annihilationists base the doctrine on their exegesis of scripturesome early church writing, historical criticism of the doctrine of hell, and the concept of God as too loving to torment his creations forever. They claim that the popular conceptions of hell stem from Jewish speculation during the intertestamental period belief in an immortal soul which originated in Greek philosophy and influenced Christian theologians, and also graphic and imaginative medieval art and poetry.
Annihilationist beliefs were also common in ancient Egyptare mentioned in Maimonides' 13 principles of faith and exist in Mandaeism. Proponents of annihilationism agree that the Bible teaches that the wicked are punished eternally, but do Two Tribes (Annihilation Mix) - Various - Fuse Presents Hell believe that the wicked endure eternal punishment consciously.
Similarly, the New Testament teaches that the wicked will justly suffer for their sins, but the end result will be their destruction cf. Luke —31; Romans ; 2 Thessalonians Other New Testament texts including Matthew where Christ speaks of the wicked being destroyed "both body and soul" in fiery hell, John "our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep", and 1 Thessalonians "we shall not precede those who have fallen asleep".

Although, the parable of Lazarus could also be interpreted in the sense that it states "being in hades he lifted up his eyes", meaning that the Rich Man was in hades and was then resurrected "lifted up his eyes"therefore stating that at the time of the torment described and conversing with Abraham, he was no-longer in hades, but facing the lake of fire.
A majority of Christian writers, from Tertullian to Lutherhave held to traditional notions of hell, especially Latin writers. However, the annihilationist position is not without some historical precedent. Early forms of conditional immortality can be found in the writings of Ignatius of Antioch  d. However, the teachings of Arnobius d.
One quote in particular stands out in Arnobius' second book of Against the Heathen :. Your interests are in jeopardy,-the salvation, I mean, of your souls; and unless you give yourselves to seek to know the Supreme God, a cruel death awaits you when freed from the bonds of body, not bringing sudden annihilation, but destroying by the bitterness of its grievous and long-protracted punishment.
Additionally, at least one of John Wesley 's recorded sermons are often reluctantly understood as implying annihilationism. Contrarily, the denominations of Methodism which arose through his influence typically do not agree with annihilationism.

The Millerite movement consisted of 50, topeople in the United States who eagerly expected the soon return of Jesus, and originated around William Miller. George Storrs introduced the belief to the Millerites. He had been a Methodist minister and antislavery advocate. He was introduced to annihilationism when in he read a pamphlet by Henry Grew.
He published tracts in and arguing for conditionalism and annihilation. The Millerites expected Jesus to return around orbased on Bible texts including Danieland one Hebrew Calendar. When the most expected date of Jesus' return October 22, passed uneventfully, the " Great Disappointment " resulted.
Followers met in to discuss the future direction of the movement, and were henceforth known as " Adventists ". However they split on the issues of conditionalism and annihilation. The dominant group, which published the Advent Heraldadopted the traditional position of the immortal soul, and became the American Evangelical Adventist Conference.
On the other hand, groups behind the Bible Advocate and Second Advent Watchman adopted conditionalism. Later, the main advocate of conditionalism became the World's Crisis publication, which started in the early s, and played a key part in the origin of the Advent Christian Church.
Storrs came to believe the wicked would never be resurrected. He and like-minded others formed the Life and Advent Union in The Seventh-day Adventist Church view of hell is held to be as annihilation rather than eternal burning of the wicked, and one is of its distinctive tenets.

Annihilationism seems to be gaining as a legitimate minority opinion within modern, conservative Protestant theology since the s, and particularly since the s. It has Two Tribes (Annihilation Mix) - Various - Fuse Presents Hell support and acceptance among some British evangelicals, although viewed with greater suspicion by their American counterparts. Recently, a handful of evangelical theologians, including the prominent evangelical Anglican author John Stotthave offered at least tentative support for the doctrine, touching off a heated debate within mainstream evangelical Christianity.
The subject really gained attention in the late s, from publications by two evangelical Anglicans, John Stott and Philip Hughes. I hold it tentatively I believe that the ultimate annihilation of the wicked should at least be accepted as a legitimate, biblically founded Two Tribes (Annihilation Mix) - Various - Fuse Presents Hell to their eternal conscious torment. John Wenham 's book The Goodness of God contained a chapter which challenged the traditional church doctrine, and was the first book from an evangelical publishing house to do so.

Pentecostal healing evangelist William Branham promoted annihilationism in the last few years before his death in The report, entitled "The Mystery of Salvation" states, "Christians have professed appalling theologies which made God into a sadistic monster.
Hell is not eternal torment, but it is the final and irrevocable choosing of that which is opposed to God so completely and so absolutely that the only end is total non-being. Several evangelical reactions to annihilationism were published. Packer delivered several lectures supporting the traditional doctrine of eternal suffering.
The reluctance of many evangelicals is illustrated by the fact that proponents of annihilationism have had trouble publishing their doctrines with evangelical publishing houses, with Wenham's book being the first.
Some well respected authors have remained neutral. Bruce wrote, "annihilation is certainly an acceptable interpretation of the relevant Two Tribes (Annihilation Mix) - Various - Fuse Presents Hell Testament passages For myself, I remain agnostic. Lewis did not systematize his own beliefs. Yet in The Problem of Pain"Lewis sounds much like an annihilationist. But I Eazy-Duz-It - Snoop Dogg - The West Coast Blueprint that Our Lord, while stressing the terror of hell with unsparing severity usually emphasises the idea not of duration but of finality.
