100 Questions For Those Who Deny Eternal Torment

by Thomas Golda

1. Since all those not written in the book of life are cast into the lake of fire - Revelation 20:15, meaning all the non-elect, and those cast into the lake of fire are ALIVE in Revelation 19:20, how can they not have conscious existence if they are alive?

2. In Revelation 20:10, the devil and his dominion are "tormented day and night forever and ever."  What is "forever and ever" in Revelation 20:10? The verse clearly says.  Torment.  The torment continues forever and ever.  Where do you get the Biblical justification to "add" the word "annihilation" before "forever and ever?"

3. All those who are unsaved in Revelation 14:9, those who worship the beast and receive his mark are "tormented" with fire and brimstone in Revelation 14:10.  The duration of this torment is not "five months."  The next verse in Revelation 14:11 declares how long.  Forever and ever.  If the smoke of their torment goes forever and ever, that means the torment goes forever and ever.  How do you state this should say "the smoke of their destruction goes forever and ever" when the verse clearly states torment?

4. In Revelation 14:11, the unsaved have "no rest."  Meaning the smoke of their torment is further defined by the rest of the verse as the unsaved having "no rest."  No rest = torment.  Can you find one example in the Bible where the phrase "no rest" is synonymous with those not living and ceasing to exist?

5. In Revelation 14:11, God says whom this applies to "who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name." Meaning, every unsaved person. Prove that God is "selective" that this only applies to those unsaved alive "by a certain date."

6. In Matthew 13:50:51, Jesus mentions that the unsaved will suffer a living suffering of "weeping and gnashing of teeth."  He asked the disciples if they understood these things.  They said "yea Lord."  What did they understand about weeping and gnashing of teeth that the unsaved will suffer?

7. In Matthew 8:5-9, Jesus was talking to the Roman Centurion, whom Jesus healed his servant.  As He continues to talk to him, Jesus says in verse 10:

"...I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel."  Matthew 8:10 

In following up this statement about Israel, He states:

"And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."  Matthew 8:11-12 

As Jesus continues talking to the Roman centurion and those around Him, He states the fate of Israel....weeping and gnashing of teeth.  A living suffering.  Are you saying this truth Jesus warned them has no application to those He spoke to?

8. In Matthew 22:13-14, Jesus states:

"Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen"  Matthew 22:13-14 

How can all those not elect, not chosen, suffer weeping and gnashing of teeth, if they never have conscious existence again?

9. In Matthew 25:31-32, Jesus states:

"When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left"  Matthew 25:31-33

How can all nations be gathered before Jesus where they are separated before Him, right hand and left hand, if the unsaved never have conscious existence again?

10. Jesus speaks to those on the left hand:

"Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink" Matthew 25:41-42

Who is Jesus speaking to on the left hand? People who are alive or dead bones?

11. In Matthew 25:44-46, Jesus states:

"Then shall they also ANSWER HIM, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal."  Matthew 25:44-46 

How can all those on the left hand, who are cast into everlasting punishment, "answer Jesus" and speak these words if they never have conscious existence again?

12.  In Romans 2:5-10, God talks about the final Judgment Day.  He states upon those who are unsaved:

"Tribulation and ANGUISH, upon EVERY SOUL OF MAN that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile"  Romans 2:9

How can "anguish" come upon "every" unsaved person, if the unsaved never have conscious existence again?

13.  In Luke 12:4-5, Jesus warns:

"And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and AFTER THAT HAVE NO MORE THAT THEY CAN DO. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him."  Luke 12:4-5

Jesus states that the unsaved can "kill" one another.  If mankind can burn another at the stake or in the oven, where there is nothing left but ashes, what did Jesus warn when He said "and AFTER THAT HAVE NO MORE THAT THEY CAN DO?"

What can God do to the unsaved, that mankind cannot?

14. In John 5:28-29, Jesus states:

"Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which ALL that are in the graves shall HEAR HIS VOICE, And shall COME FORTH; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."  John 5:28-29 

Since BOTH the elect and non-elect "hear his voice" and "come forth," how can the unsaved "hear his voice and come forth" if they never have conscious existence again?

15. In Philippians 2:10-11, those "under the earth" bow to Christ and confess that Jesus is Lord.  How can those "under the earth" do this if they never have conscious existence again?

16. In Luke 16:25, Jesus states in the parable of the rich man and Lazarus:

"...but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented."  Luke 16:25

Whether the word "torment" should be translated "sorrow" or not, makes no difference.  You can't be "sorrowful" if one is annihilated.  If all believers are comforted in heaven, that means all the unsaved are sorrowful in hell.  How can the unsaved be sorrowful in hell if they never have conscious existence again?

17. What is the "place of torment" in Luke 16:28?

18. What is the "flame" that one is tormented in, in Luke 16:24? 

19. If the account of the rich man and Lazarus occurs AFTER death, how can you state this refers to "those who are still alive in the final 5 months?"

20. In Matthew 18:34-35, Jesus warns on the penalty of "not forgiving"

"And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the TORMENTORS, till he should pay all that was due unto him. So LIKEWISE shall my heavenly Father do ALSO unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses."  Matthew 18:34-35 

If Jesus warned that "likewise" will God the Father "deliver to the tormentors" all those unsaved, who can't forgive, how does ashes and bones be tormented? One must be alive to be tormented.

21. In Matthew 11:24, Jesus warns the city of Capernaum:

"But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee"  Matthew 11:24

So, both Capernaum and Sodom will both consciously experience the "Day of Judgment" and Sodom will have it "more tolerable."  

Are you stating that "ones ashes" will have it more tolerable than another?

22. In Matthew 23:14, Jesus warned the Pharisees of "greater damnation." Are you stating that some ashes receive greater damnation than another?

23. In Revelation 22:18, God warns "every man" that if they add to the Bible, God will "add" unto them the plagues.  That is, degrees of punishment.  How can one add plagues or stripes to the unsaved, if they never have conscious existence again?

24. In Revelation 2:11, the unsaved will be "hurt" of the Second Death.  Can you find one example where the Greek word "hurt" is used with those who have no conscious existence?

25. In Psalm 73:16-19, David sees the "end" of the unsaved.  They are "consumed with TERRORS." - Psalm 73:19.  How can all the unsaved be consumed with terrors if they never have conscious existence again?

26. In Proverbs 1:26-28, God states:

"I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me" Proverbs 1:26-28 

At the end, Jesus will laugh at the calamity of the unsaved.  The unsaved will suffer "distress and anguish."  How can the unsaved suffer distress and anguish if they never have conscious existence again?

27. In Luke 12:47-18, some are beaten with many stripes and some are beaten with a few.  That perfectly ties into the truth of "greater damnation" and being "more tolerable" for some over others. You state this does not apply to all the unsaved, just the unsaved "you" have selected in the last 5 months.  Where does it say that in this verse?

28. Paul was a Pharisee.  The Sadducees believed in annihilation and no resurrection - Acts 23:8.  If annihilation is true, why did not God use a Sadducee as one of the holy men of old to be moved by the Holy Spirit?

29. The Bible says that all enemies will be under Jesus feet - I Cor. 15:25

Are you saying that all ashes will be under His feet?

30. The unsaved suffer the eternal whip/scourge and vexation - Isaiah 28:18-19. How can ashes and bones suffering a whipping eternally?

31. In Psalm 2:5, Jesus will "speak" unto the unsaved and VEX them.  How can He speak unto the unsaved and vex them if they don't have conscious existence?

32. In Psalm 11:5, the wicked will suffer "snares, fire and brimstone and a horrible tempest." This is what God will do to ones bones according to you?

33. In Hosea 10:8, Israel will say "Fall on us" to the mountains.  Jesus warned of the same truth to the Jews of His day - Luke 23:30.  God further states every human being will say this - Revelation 6:15-17.  How can the unsaved say "fall on us" to the mountains if they never have conscious existence again?

34. In I Peter 4:5, every unsaved person will "give account TO HIM" who will judge the living and the dead.  How does one who never has conscious existence again give account to Him?

35. In Revelation 20:12, the dead, small and great "stand before God."  The dead, small and great....meaning all of them.  Since the world "stands before the Son of man" at the end of the world - Luke 21:36, how can the unsaved stand before God if they don't have conscious existence again?

36. In II Peter 2:9, the unsaved/unjust are "reserved" unto the Day of Judgment to be punished.  What is being reserved? Ashes and bones? Are you serious?

37. In Matthew 7:22-23, the unsaved say "Lord, Lord."  How can the unsaved say "Lord, Lord, if the unsaved never have conscious existence again?  Are you saying the unsaved saying "Lord, Lord is "selective" to those "you" choose?

38. In II Peter 2:20 in referring to those unsaved who go back to their sins, Jesus says "the latter end is worse with them than the beginning."  What is worse? Worse annihilation?

39. In Revelation 18:7, God promises to the unsaved "so much torment and sorrow give her."  How will you make this go away?

40. In Isaiah 66:24, the elect "look upon" the unsaved as their worm dies not and fire is not quenched, and are abhorred by them.  How can they "look upon" and "abhor" something if it has been annihilated?

41. In Mark 9:43-49, Jesus quotes the same language 3x.  Do you honestly think Jesus is warning of "ceasing to exist?

42. Since conditions in the fire are "weeping and gnashing of teeth" - Matthew 13:50-51 and the fire lasts forever, Mark 9:46, how does that translated to "ceasing to exist?"

43. Since the majority of the dead unsaved over the past thousands of years has absolutely no remains at all, how can one's "whole body" be cast into hell at the end? - Matthew 5:29

44. How can "every one" "give account" at the end - Romans 14:12, if the unsaved never have conscious existence again?

45. How can mankind "give account" of "every idle word" - Matthew 12:36, if they have no conscious existence to give account of every idle word?

46. The unsaved are "angry" as they are judged at the 7th trumpet - Revelation 11:18.  How can they be angry if they never have conscious existence again? 

47. How can Jesus judge the "living and the dead" at His appearing - II Timothy 4:1, if according to you, the unsaved never have conscious existence again?

48. In Daniel 7:10, ten thousand times ten thousands stand before Christ at the end.  How can this be if the unsaved never have conscious existence again?

49. In Matthew 26:64, Jesus warned Caiaphas that He would see Christ sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven.  How can Caiaphas see this, and how can "every eye see Him" - Revelation 1:7 if "every eye" has already "ceased to exist?"

50. How can Jesus rule the unsaved with a "rod of iron" - Revelation 2:27, Psalm 2:8-9, if the unsaved throughout history have already ceased to exist? Is Jesus ruling over ashes?

51.  In Revelation 16:21, men "blasphemy" God as a great hail falls from heaven, after the mountains and islands fled away.  How can they blasphemy God if the unsaved never have conscious existence again?

52.  Approx. 110 billion people have already died since time began.  Are you saying that Judgment Day does not consciously affect any of these 110 people who have already died?

53. In Isaiah 34:19:

"The sinners in Zion are AFRAID; FEARFULNESS hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall DWELL with EVERLASTING BURNINGS?"  Isaiah 33:19 

What is the everlasting burnings that the sinners of Zion are AFRAID of on the Last Day?  Are they afraid of being annihilated?  Are you serious?

54.  When Jesus says "depart from me" to the unsaved on the last day:

"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: DEPART FROM ME, ye that work iniquity."  Matthew 7:22-23 

"But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; DEPART FROM ME, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out."  Luke 13:27-28 

"Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, DEPART FROM ME ye cursed, INTO EVERLASTING FIRE, prepared for the devil and his angels"  Matthew 25:41 

Jesus says "depart from me" to all the unsaved and they are cast into "everlasting fire" where they suffer "weeping and gnashing of teeth."

How does "everlasting fire" translate to "5 months" or "ceasing to exist?"

55. In Matthew 25:46

"And these shall GO AWAY into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT: but the righteous into life eternal."  Matthew 25:46 

Jesus says the unsaved "go away" into "everlasting punishment."  Since when does everlasting punishment translate to 5 months or ceasing to exist? They "go away" to a place.  Where is that place?

56. In Matthew 26:24:

"The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born."  Matthew 26:24

How is Jesus' warning to Judas of better not being born having meaning, if according to you, Judas never has conscious existence again?

57.  In Jeremiah 23:40:

"And I will bring an EVERLASTING REPROACH upon you, and a PERPETUAL SHAME, which shall not be forgotten"  Jeremiah 23:40 

The examples of "reproach" in the Hebrew are used referring to those alive.  How does everlasting reproach and a perpetual shame translate to ceasing to exist?

58. In Matthew 16:18

"And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and THE GATES OF HELL shall not prevail against it."  Matthew 16:18

Are you saying that what does not prevail against the elect is the gates of annihilation?  Or is this the gates of the 5 months?  You use "hell" referring to both. Are you confused?  Do you really think that Jesus is warning about the "gates of non-existence?

59. In Revelation 1:18:

"I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have THE KEYS OF HELL and of death."  Revelation 1:18 

Jesus has the keys of hell and death, meaning the second death.  Are you saying that Jesus has the keys of annihilation and the keys to ceasing to exist?

60. In Colossians 1:28

"Whom we preach, WARNING EVERY MAN, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus" Colossians 1:28

What are we warning every man of? That they will cease to exist one day and their bones will blow away in the wind? This is what we warn every man of according to you?

Paul warned every man.  He certainly did not warn anybody of "5 months."  So, what did he warn every man of?

61. In II Corinthians 5:11

"KNOWING therefore THE TERROR OF THE LORD, we persuade men...."  II Corinthians 5:11 

What is the "terror of the LORD" that is KNOWN?

What is the "terror of the LORD" that we persuade men?

The terror of ceasing to exist and having their bones judged?  Are you serious?

62. In Mark 9:42:

"And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is BETTER FOR HIM that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea"  Mark 9:42 

Why is Jesus saying it is "better" for one to be DEAD, then to offend the elect? Isn't that implying something worse than "dead is dead?"

63. In Mark 9:43-48, Jesus warns 3x the fate of the unsaved...

"And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to GO INTO HELL, into the FIRE that NEVER shall be QUENCHED: Where their worm DIETH NOT, and the FIRE is NOT QUENCHED."  Mark 9:43-44 

Do you honestly think that 3x that Jesus is warning these truths in the Bible that He is trying to get the message across of "ceasing to exist?"

Does that mean these verses all apply to anybody that dies on this earth?

64. In Isaiah 66:24, Jesus is quoting this in Mark 9:

"And they shall go forth, and LOOK UPON the CARCASES of the men that have transgressed against me: for their WORM shall NOT DIE, NEITHER shall their FIRE be QUENCHED; and they shall be an ABHORING unto all flesh."  Isaiah 66:24 

If all the elect in heaven look upon the carcasses of the unsaved, where their fire is not quenched, then the "timing" of these verses take place when the new heaven and new earth are created.  How can the carcasses exist, and be seen and abhorred, if everything is supposedly annihilated?

65.  In Jude 1:7

"Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, SUFFERING the VENGEANCE of ETERNAL FIRE."  Jude 1:7 

The word "suffering" in the Greek is the present tense.  How can the people of Sodom currently suffer the vengeance of eternal fire, if they supposedly cease to exist?

66. I Peter 4:18

"And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?"  I Peter 4:18 

Where do the ungodly and the sinner "appear?" This means annihilation?

67. In Revelation 19:15

"And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should SMITE THE NATIONS: and he shall RULE THEM with a ROD OF IRON: and he TREADETH the winepress of the FIERCENESS and WRATH of ALMIGHTY GOD  Revelation 19:15 

God is defining the "fierce" wrath of God, as He SMITES the nations, and "rules" them with a rod of iron.  How does smiting the nations translate to "ceasing to exist"

Or does Christ smite them and rule them for 5 months and after 5 months, Christ's rule comes to an end?  Are you serious?

68. In Matthew 23:15, when Jesus warned "ye make him twofold more THE CHILD OF HELL than yourselves." 

According to you Jesus means two fold more the child of annihilation?

69. When Jesus said in Matthew 23:33

"Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, HOW can ye ESCAPE the DAMNATION OF HELL?"  Matthew 23:33 

Jesus means how shall one "escape" ceasing to exist?

70.  In Revelation 18:20, heaven rejoices as God "avenges" the elect.  How does God avenge the elect? By burning the dead bones of the unsaved? 

71. In Revelation 6:10, the elect in heaven cry out for vengeance and Christ to avenge their blood.  You are saying they are referring to a burning of dead bones?

72. In Luke 21:36 Jesus warned that the entire world will "Stand before the Son of man."   Is it dead bones and ashes standing before Christ?

73.  Jesus said that those not the "salt of the earth" are GOOD FOR NOTHING in Matthew 5:13.  Since salt = Judgment, and you claim that eternal torment and Standing before Christ is "no more," doesn't that make the current annihilation/No standing before Christ gospel "good for nothing?"

74.  In Matthew 5:21, Jesus warned of "being in danger of Judgment" and in Matthew 5:22, of "being in danger of hell fire."  You are stating this means being in "danger" of ceasing to exist?

75. In Luke 16:26, Jesus said:

"And beside all this, between us and YOU there is a great gulf fixed...."  Luke 16:26 

How long is the "great gulf fixed?" Since Jesus indicates that the unsaved still exist, in referring to them, how can this be if all are annihilated?

76.  In the light of the fact that churches preaching hell is at an all-time low, and since churches fall away and go apostate as we come closer to the end, wouldn't it seem that ignoring hell and damnation is apostate and false?

77.  If Revelation 14:11 is not speaking about eternal torment, then why is the word "torment" in the verse, Strong 929, and the phrase "forever and ever?"

78.  In John 3:36:

"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but THE WRATH OF GOD ABIDETH on him."  John 3:36 

Are you saying that this means the annihilation of God abideth on him?

79.  In Revelation 14:10 it says:

"The same shall drink of the wine of THE WRATH OF GOD which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and HE SHALL BE TORMENTED with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb" Revelation 14:10

God further defines the wrath of God.  The wrath of God = tormented with fire and brimstone.  Therefore, being tormented with fire and brimstone is what "abideth" on the unsaved.  How does this translate to ceasing to exist?

80. Can you find one verse in the Bible that states "The wrath of God" is "ceasing to exist?"

81. In Rev 5:13, those "under the earth" and "in the sea" give honor to Christ.  Wouldn't this be a reference to those in hell?

82. In Rev 5:3, no "man" that is "under the earth" can open the books.  Isn't this referring to those in hell?

83.  In Matthew 16:18, the word "hell" from the phrase "gates of hell" and the word "hell" in Luke 16:23 are the same.  However, the rich man was alive in hell "being in torments."  Would not hell be a condition of conscious torment?

84. In Luke 16:23, ""And IN HELL he lift up his eyes, being in torments..."  Luke 16:23 Is not the fact that the rich man had "eyes" in hell and "tormented" in hell give indication of being alive and not annihilated?

85. In Rev 20:13:

"And THE SEA GAVE UP THE DEAD which were IN IT; and death and HELL DELIVERED UP THE DEAD which were IN THEM and they were JUDGED every man according to their works."  Rev 20:13

The same Greek word for "hell" is used here as in Luke 16:23.  Isn't this saying those alive in hell in their soul, are "delivered up" to be judged in body on the last day? Are you saying this refers to ashes and bones?

86.  In Rev 14:19, the unsaved are cast into the "great winepress of the wrath of God."  Do you honestly think this is language of "ceasing to exist?"

87.  In Jude 1:6, the angels are "reserved unto everlasting chains unto Judgment Day." If the angels are consciously reserved, would not people also?

88. In Exodus 3:3-4 the bush burned with fire and was not consumed.   Is not this teaching the opposite of annihilation?

89.  In Isaiah 53:5, Jesus was "wounded" for our "transgressions" and "bruised" for our "iniquities.   Why did Jesus have to be wounded and bruised for "sin" when according to you, the penalty of sin is only "ceasing to exist?"

90. In Luke 22:44, Jesus endured "agony."  Would not all the  non-elect also have to endure this same agony in hell?

91. in Luke 22:42, Jesus prayed that this "cup" might be removed from Him. The unsaved also have to endure the "cup" of His indignation in Rev 14:10.  Do you honestly think this only applies to those alive the last 5 months and nobody else?

92. In Isaiah 53:11, Jesus "bear their iniquities" by the "travail" of His soul.  Is not the payment for sin a conscious suffering?

93. In Jonah 2:2-3, Jonah cried out of the "belly of hell."  Is not hell a condition of a living suffering?

94.   Don't you find in strange that in the apostate book "To God be the Glory" that the "lake of fire" is referred to again and again as "ceasing to exist" but no mention of how one is "alive" in the lake of fire - Rev 19:20 and "tormented" in the lake of fire - Rev 20:10

95.  In Hebrews 9:27

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but AFTER THIS the JUDGMENT  Hebrews 9:27 -  

What What is the Judgment that occurs "after" one dies.  A burning of bones?

96. In Hebrews 9:26

"For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now ONCE in the END OF THE WORLD hath HE APPEARED to PUT AWAY SIN by the sacrifice of himself."  Hebrews 9:26 

This verse clearly says Jesus did not suffer since the foundation of the world, but once in the END OF THE WORLD hath appeared to PUT AWAY SIN by His sacrifice.

How do you justify re-writing the verse to say the Cross is just a parable?

97.  In Psalm 83:17, it says the wicked are TROUBLED FOREVER.  You can't be "troubled forever" unless you have conscious existence forever.  The word "troubled" is also translated VEXED or AFRAID.  The wicked are TROUBLED/VEXED/AFRAID FOREVER.  Not "annihilated"

98.  In Ephesians 5:6

"Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience."  Ephesians 5:6 

The wrath of God upon the children of disobedience is the wrath of ceasing to exist and wrath upon dead bones?

99.  In Jude 1:15, Christ returns with the elect to execute judgment upon the unsaved and to "convince" all those that are ungodly of their ungodly deeds.  How are those who already have died experience this if they don't have conscious existence again?

100.  In Mark 9:44 the worm will "NOT DIE" in referring to the unsaved.  If this refers to annihilation, shouldn't it say their worm WILL die?
