IS PUNISHMENT IN HELL ETERNAL?
BIBLICAL SUPPORT FOR TRADITIONALISM
Evangelical Christians agree that Hell is a real place of punishment where
the vast majority of humans will go after death. However, there are many views
about the experiences that the "unsaved" will have in Hell. Two common views
||Annihilationism (a.k.a. Conditionalism and conditional
immortality): Inmates of Hell will be subjected to time-limited
punishment, and then exterminated totally without leaving a trace of body or
punishment without any possibility of relief. This is the historical
belief held in the past by almost all Christian faith groups, except for
Biblical passages relating to the fate of the dead, as interpreted from an
Traditionalist perspective, is described below.
