We all have loved ones who are not saved and therefore we would very much prefer that the Bible would teach that the unsaved are annihilated. Then, there would be no continual suffering for them. However, we must examine what the Bible says about the eternity of the unsaved.
This website contains three studies on the Biblical definition of "life" and "death" for mankind which is a key point in this question. There are several studies with many passages that prove that the unsaved will consciously awake at Judgment Day. Also, there is a study that shows proofs of the eternal character of the conscious suffering of the unsaved. In addition, there are more than 25 studies that examine arguments used to teach annihilation. A tract, "What Is the Meaning of Life?", has been prepared. It is available in English and Spanish. Also, we have a page with Bible studies in Spanish.
In addition to viewing these studies online, you may right-click on any of the study links to save a copy on your computer for printing.
You may click on the "BIBLE STUDIES" link to examine these studies. You may click on the "RESPONSE 1" link to examine responses to arguments given for annihilation. We also have a "FEEDBACK" link with emails received. You may learn about our Pal Talk Bible study and download studies at the "AUDIO" link. You may email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
May the Lord richly bless you.
