Judgment, Heaven, Hell & Life After Death

Eternity. In order to attain salvation (eternal life in heaven), they believe one must be a member and remain a faithful, true follower in the 2×2 church. They often say: Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.

Hell is a place of torment and never ending fire: Mark 9:43-44 – 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…

The final Judgment is described in Matt 25:31-46

Worker Quote: The Judgment is for the purpose of rewarding those in Christ, and meeting the punishment to those that die out of Christ. The judgment is not to decide whether a person goes to Heaven or Hell; whether we go to Heaven or Hell is decided here on earth. (Jack Jackson, Hector, MN, 1959)

Worker Quote: Will the fellowship with Christ that has meant so much to us here on earth continue beyond the grave? Will it be ours in the interval between death and the resurrection? There are two words that would make this a little easier for us to understand: “With Christ.” If we enter into fellowship “with Christ” here on earth, we can have the glad assurance that the fellowship “with Christ” may continue between death and the resurrection and then afterwards “with Christ” throughout the eternal ages. The children of God do not go to the ultimate and final Heaven at death. That ultimate and final Heaven will be theirs at the resurrection. The question that troubles most of God’s children is: “What is the condition of those who have gone before, between death and the resurrection?” (Howard Mooney).

Worker Quote: Fellowship with Christ begins here, continues beyond the grave, and during the interval between death and the resurrection. At the resurrection the children of God who have gone before and been with Christ, some for a thousand years, some for two thousand years or more, will get resurrection bodies. Those who remain will be changed in the twinkling of an eye, to be forever with the Lord, and they will be given the city foursquare, they shall be forever with the Lord. Now, do you think the Lord is through with His people when He takes them Home? Don’t you think we are now qualifying for greater, more fruitful service in the life beyond? “His servants shall serve Him.” So, the life of service doesn’t end with the grave, for with the resurrection, it opens the door to greater service, more fruitful service, more satisfied serving in the world to come! (Jack Carroll, Avondale, 1944)
