Book Review – Death and the Afterlife, Dr. Robert A. Morey – Good News Unlimited
Theology Westminster Theological Seminary D. In an irreverent and secular world where anything goes, these points need to be repeated again and again.
Scripture was not written by scientists, the conditionalist notes, or in some technical or mystical language, but in the everyday language of the common citizen of its day.
They admitted that God could also destroy it if he so decided.
We already have noted Morey’s use of Edersheim and Josephus to prove his claim of a uniform Jewish view of final punishment at the time of Christ. All we need to do afterpife is to give these scriptural terms their “plain meaning,” as Morey urges so well in his opening pages, and the controversy will be over. He says that conditionalists ignore this passage and argues that it is “absurd” to claim Baruch as an advocate of the conditionalist view.

No trivia or quizzes yet. The traditionalist’s second major argument is historical. For example, in looking at Jude 7 and translations that refer to Sodom and Gomorrah having themselves been punished with eternal fire atferlife is pointed to by conditionalists as evidence that eternal fire doesn’t mean “fire that burns for eternity”Morey argues that only the King James Version translates it like that.
The author of several books, Morey self-identifies as an apologist for orthodox Christianity and an exposer of cultic and non-Christian religions. Heck, even in the NASB, which is the default translation used in this book, Sodom and Gomorrah “are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire,” just like the KJV.

Conditionalists also list the major terms the Apostle Paul uses to describe the end of afteelife wicked, and offer them as prima facie evidence which supports their view.
This statement may express Morey’s opinion with clarity and probably Plato’s and Socrates’ as wellbut where afyerlife any anv notion ever appear in the Word of God? Harry rated it really liked it Aug 31, Although the wicked will be raised for judgment, they will not be made immortal. Some, atterlife argued that every soul will live forever, denied that any soul will ever “die,” “perish,” “corrupt” or be “destroyed.
Not only do these twelve allegations result solely from Morey’s own overly-zealous imagination, many conditionalist books afterlire The Fire that Consumes devote far more space to refuting these very errors than Morey’s book does.
