Some of the most powerful evidence that proves Jesus to be Whom he claimed to be is found in the historical fulfillment of the prophsies He foretold in the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 a.d. Yet the Church, for the most part, has allowed it to go unnoticed. Read the book the "Parousia" by James S. Russell (below) for a faith strengthening, eye opening experience!

Church Fathers who were Conditionalists
What did the Early Church Fathers believe about hell? Many assume that they held to what is now the traditional view - eternal torment. But in fact a number of them held to the view known as conditional immortality, the belief that only the saved will live forever, and the lost will one day be no more.
On Saturday, September 28th, 2013, Chris Date and Dr. Phil Fernandes debated the proposition, "The punishment of hell will be annihilation: the everlasting loss of life and conscious existence."
