Hell and Everlasting Punishment


James L. Fleming 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


From the Preface: Several so-called religious publishing-houses are sending forth books and tracts by the thousands, trying to overthrow the doctrine of everlasting punishment. It is actually surprising to see the multitudes that readily grasp such teaching; and once the fears of hell are cooled in their bosoms, many give vent to unbridled lust and thus plunge their souls farther down towards the realms of woe. Convince a man that he will simply be blotted out of existence, pass into eternal unconsciousness, into oblivion, and thus be freed from the sense of eternal misery, and in most cases he prefers a life in the pleasures of sin.

All such doctrines are invented by the devil, advocated by false prophets, and are rank deceptions. The doctrine of annihilation is entirely without Scriptural support, and yet many texts are wrested to support it. Such terms as “death,” “destruction,” “perish,” and “burn up” are explained to mean nothing else than a blotting out of existence.

I ask the reader to peruse carefully the contents of this little book. Do not cast it aside with prejudiced mind. You will find that it clearly sets forth the truth and answers every objection to eternal damnation.

In our evangelistic work, we everywhere meet so many who have been deceived by false teaching and literature that I feel constrained to blow this blast of warning and truth from the trumpet of God.—H. M. Riggle
