Are Sinner’s Souls Immortal

Author: Dennis King

During the previous “The Lake of Fire” studies, it was noted that some biblical scholars interpret scriptural characterizations of Hell as a location where human sinners are held prior to the Judgment at the Great White Throne. Then, these scholars purpose individual punishments are metered out and the wicked are put to death, not living in eternal torment. More


The Bible says “only God has immortality.” When Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden of Eden, an angel was posted to guard the tree of life so that sinners would not eat of the tree and “live forever” (Genesis 3:22-24). The teachings that sinners are immortal in hell originated with Satan’s influence and is completely untruthful. How we think of “soul” today has been influenced by Socrates and Plato. Genesis 3:3-5 says; But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die. And the serpent said unto the woman, You shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. Thus, God prevented the immortality of sin when it entered this earth by guarding the Tree of Life. An eternal hell of torment would perpetuate the remembrance of sin. More directly to the point of the eternal punishment of unbelieving sinners is where the Bible says the wicked will suffer “The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” as read from Romans 6:23. Destruction is found in Job 21:30, which reports, That the wicked are reserved to the day of destruction? Psalms 37:20, relates, But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. Eighteen verses later, Psalms says, But the transgressors shall be destroyed together; The future of the wicked shall be cut off. We could continue ad-infinitely with clear and specific Biblical examples of what the wicked will face—like “burn” up ~ Malachi 4:1, “destroyed together” ~ Psalms 37:38, “shall be cut off” ~ Psalms 37:9, “shall be slain” ~ Psalms 62:3, God will “destroy” them ~ Psalms 145:20, and “fire shall devour them” ~ Psalms 21:9. All of these referenced works seem to clearly speak to human deaths where the wicked are destroyed. Never once in these references does it indicate the wicked live forever in misery.If that be true, how are the wicked punished? Revelation 22:10-12 reads, And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.Now in my mind, “works” as used here, equates to both good and/or bad works. Saints will be rewarded and sinners will be punished, each according to their recorded deeds. Possibly, Luke verses, 12:47-48, are more precise, “And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.” Finally, in the last verse, 59, we read, “I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou has paid the very last mite.”Biblical punishment for being mistaken, bad, or willfully sinful is not only based on events, but on situational knowledge as well. All of which affect the duration and severity of the applied punitive measures. I can think of no clearer messages on an individual’s “punishment accountability” than Exodus 21.
