As we conclude this series, we must ask: Concerning the traditional view of eternal punishment, does it not in effect chop off the effect of the atonement of our Lord at the knees? Does it not LIMIT the power of the cross?
What about the early Church. Did the early Church fathers believe that God would torment someone for eternity? In this video of just under 12 minutes, we discuss this.

In our last segment of this series we learned that God’s punishment of the lost is for the purpose of correction, and will not last forever. But what about those in the Bible like the Pharaoh of Egypt. Doesn’t the Bible say that God hardened his heart? Does this mean that people like him who were designated as enemies of God never got a chance?

In Matthew 25:46 we see a passage that has been used for centuries to try to scare people into becoming believers. It says:
Matt 25:46 “And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Is this speaking of Eternal torment or not? In this 14 minute video, we find the true explanation of this passage.
