Virginia marked it as to-read Sep 09, Even if it did, it might only mean they were importing into their Greek Old Testament a concept never found in the original Hebrew.
But Morey admits even more.

Yet Morey explains these very expressions exactly as do the conditionalists he opposes.
Donald rated it it was amazing Aug 07, Refuting a point by agreeing with it. The Old Testament uses more than 70 different Hebrew words or phrases to depict the fate of the wicked, they note, and not one of them sounds anything like everlasting conscious torment. The tone is harsh, rude, and arrogant much as is Robert Morey’s preaching that I have seen – even when he is making a point I agree with!
Refresh and try again.
Robert V rated it it was amazing Nov 21, He falsely charges, for example, that conditionalists admit no degree of punishment p. Bruce explicitly rejected the traditional view in his foreword to The Fire That Consumes, although he declined to commit to conditionalism, either, preferring a reverent agnosticism on the subject.

David Ellingson is currently reading it May 20, An excellent work and clearly presented on the Biblical view of Hell and what happens after death.
My point in telling this is not merely to vindicate Verdict Publications, but to emphasize that readers need to be very slow wfterlife an evil report concerning anyone, and especially when it is passed to discredit one with whom the author is taking issue. If Morey’s opinion is correct, it thoroughly eliminates the need for a bodily resurrection since his “disembodied supradimensional energy being” gets along so well without a body and might even travel faster unencumbered by one!
The author of several books, Morey self-identifies as an apologist for orthodox Christianity and an exposer of cultic and non-Christian religions.
