    Because annihilationism is actually a preferable alternative to both heaven and hell and this bothered christoids who need to maintain their reward-punishment framework of morality

      Exactly. I would argue that heaven is an even worse punishment. At least in hell you can come to terms with your suffering. In heaven you’re just supposed to be happy you’re stuck in a never changing paradise

    Because people believe what they want to believe.
    Christians say
    >Jesus did away with the old law and brought a new law
    Jesus says
    >I have not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it

    Christians say
    >you just need to believe and you’ll go to heaven
    Jesus says
    >Not everyone who says to me “Lord, Lord” will enter the kingdom of heaven. Only those who do the will of my father will enter heaven.

    Etc. etc.

    There’s a reason why there’s 30,000 denominations. The Bible gives just enough for everyone to make up their own interpretations about literally every topic

      you can't threaten people with not existing
      it's like "eh"

      the predominant view of the early christians was that the law was done away with

    >Jesus says
    >>Not everyone who says to me “Lord, Lord” will enter the kingdom of heaven. Only those who do the will of my father will enter heaven.
    Yes, because "the will of my Father" is believing.

    39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.
    40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
    John 6:39-40

    Catholics, JWs, Orthodox, Mormons etc. call Jesus Lord but they don't believe, which is why they will be among the people who go to hell for not doing the will of the Father.

      Not just that, it's also acting on what the Son says. The reason he doesn't know them is because they are workers of lawlessness.
      >John 6:39-40
      John is an entirely different book from where the "Lord Lord" verse comes from (Matthew)

      >Why didn't annihilationism become the dominate view of hell?
      Because it's not Biblical at all.

      >Because it's not Biblical at all.
      It's the most Biblical

        John is the only book explicitly written for salvation of men and it says that the only way is to BELIEVE. Believe, believe, believe.

        John does not mention repentance or baptism once. Believe, believe, believe. That is all that you need for eternal life. Jesus accomplished it all for us. If we try to add anything to His work, then we've denied His free gift of salvation that He earned through His death on the cross and resurrection.

        Everyone who believes has everlasting life. Those who do not believe are not doing the Father's will. It doesn't matter how many prayers you do, or if you're baptized, or how good you are: if you don't believe in Christ alone, you're going to hell.

        For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
        John 3:16

        But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.
        John 1:12

        But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
        Romans 4:5

        8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
        9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
        Ephesians 2:8-9

          Do you only accept the gospel of John?

            No, of course not. But the gospel of John is the only book that was explicitly written for getting people saved. Believe, believe, believe.

            >31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
            John 20:31

            If YOU believe right now, which is to stop trusting in your works to get you to heaven and to trust in Christ alone, then you have eternal life.

            Ok so my point remains that you can't jump to an entirely different book when discussing a verse in Matthew. If you read Matthew 7, the will of the Father isn't just believing but also acting.

            If you have faith, than works will follow. If you claim faith but do nothing, your faith is fake.

            I have to say, this was an incredibly ignorant post, seeing as I had citied multiple books that were not from John.
