The evidence for annihilation is much stronger than for eternal torment.

This is a summary of the articles on eternal torment. This article finds no clear evidence for eternal torment in the Bible. Rather, it consistently teaches that evil and the lost will be annihilated and that only God’s people will receive eternal life.

God will annihilate the lost. They will not suffer eternal torment.

The Bible teaches that the lost will not suffer everlasting torture. God will put them out of existence. For example, man was not created immortal and was condemned to death when he sinned. Immortality is a gift. Only believers will receive it. A time will come when evil does not exist.
