A New Heaven and Earth


Scripture puts forward the hope that Heaven and earth will be made new (Isa. 65:17, 66:22, Rom. 8:19-21, 2Pet. 3:13, Rev. 21 &22). “The earth will be filled with the glory of the Lord’s “(Num. 14:21, Isa. 11:9, Hab. 2:14) and “God will be all in all.” (1Cor. 15:28).

If there is at least one corner of this universe that exists forever in rebellion against him, this vision will never be fulfilled. If the wicked are to tormented for all of eternity how can it ever be said that there will be “no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Rev. 21:4).

Conditional Immortality in teaching that the wicked will be finally destroyed and will be as if they have never been (Obad. 1:16) teaches the final fulfilment of this vision!

    Just noticed your page(s) and will keep reading. How long has CI Association been around? Been leaning this way from own thinking and Bible reading for about a decade– so glad to see it developing a “life of its own” with the web and all. Really appreciated finding Edward Fudge book at a time when it seemed everybody thought I was losing it!

    Thanks, from Richland, WA
