Today I received copies of ‘Bible Study Notes’ issued by a man called Paul Lutton who has a ministry called ‘Lovers of the Truth’.
In these notes he deals with 3 topics –
- What is the soul?
- What happens after death?
- The rich man and Lazarus of Luke 16
The conclusions he draws in respect of the 3 topics examined are best summarised by the following portions of his ‘Statement of Faith’ –
· We believe that God is the only being in the universe who has immortality, believers will not receive it until Christ returns.
· We believe that man is a living soul (being) and not that he has a living soul (being).
· We believe that all the deceased are dead and await resurrection. Those who are his will be raised at his coming,, and those who are not will be raised to stand before the Great White Throne judgement.
· We believe that all Christ rejecters will have their part in the lake of fire, this is not hell but the final destiny (the second death) of all unbelievers.
