Bad News For Beelzebub: Afterlife Offers No Room for Eternal Torture


Forget about Lucifer’s tiki beach party – his vacation plans are getting a rain check. Seventh-day Adventists take a refreshingly different view on the idea of eternal damnation. In the Adventist understanding, the devil’s job description gets seriously downsized.

Here’s the deal: instead of roasting for eternity in fiery pits, evildoers get a one-way ticket to oblivion! That’s right, no endless suffering, no gnashing of teeth, just…poof! You cease to exist. Not exactly a luxury resort, but at least you don’t have to worry about pesky demons with pitchforks. (Adventists base this on the concept of annihilationism, drawing from verses like Malachi 4:1 which describes the wicked being “burned up like chaff”.)

But don’t think this means sin gets a free pass. There’s still a judgment day looming, and it’s no spa weekend. Matthew 25:41 describes Jesus separating the righteous from the wicked “as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.” The wicked face destruction, but not eternal torment (2 Thessalonians 1:6-9).
