Universalism--that every person might ultimately be saved--did no longer, within the base line, appear to quite come to grips with the overpowering scriptural testimony that a few form of radical fateful selection is feasible to humans. Conditional immortality--that those who totally refuse God's plan for them can be taken out of existence--seems to me the simplest scriptural realizing of what the Lord intended by way of "losing one's soul"--not eternal punishment however the withdrawal of lifestyles. This ebook is an try to clarify this theological concept. it's not offered as a distinct dogma or educating of the church, yet as one of many attainable result of a chronic and irrevocable choice opposed to God.
