Annihilation (herectical inconsistency)

The fact that so-called 'scholars' (like John Stott) could believe something like annihilation is quite astounding, since it completely destroys so much clear scriptures on the subject of ETERNAL, everlasting torment in Hell. This heresy is an attempt to calm our minds of the terrifying reality of hell, to sooth our human conscience. In fact such a view is NOT about love or the grace of God, it's an attack on God's righteous judgment of sin!

If such is the case (and it isn't):
Then how exactly did Christ 'suffer' annihilation for others?
Then how exactly will (Mt 11:20-24) Bethsaida, Capernaum and Korazin be judged more severly then Tyre and Sidon or Sodom?
Likewise how will the wicked who knew more, suffer greater judgment (how could it have been better to not known the truth then to know it and turn from it, if it all ends in a moment).

If Christ took the punishment of everlasting torment, then what is He doing off the cross?

Julius Mickel

Not being bound by time and being worth exceedingly more than ALL, Only Christ as God in the Flesh could suffer the full intensity of everlasting punishment, there would be NO CUP to drink if it was merely annihilation (over in a moment).
Is 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Even Christ's words of agony upon the cross would have been mere acting if He wasn't experiencing punishment. My God My GOd why.....
THe question is, could God have done to Christ what would be done to us in eternity? Yes, nothing is impossible with God and surely He could pour out His wrath in concentrated form.
