Not annihilation. For in the case of the lost not only the worm but "their worm dieth not and the fire is not quenched"; i.e. both the instrument of punishment, and the object of it, the lost man, die not. Thrice repeated by Christ with awful emphasis (Mark 9:44; Mark 9:46; Mark 9:48). (See HELL.) Matthew 10:28; Matthew 13:50; Matthew 3:12; 2 Thessalonians 1:9; John 3:36; John 5:29; Isaiah 66:24 ten "son of perditions"; applied only to him and Judas, marking the like character and destiny of both (John 17:12; Acts 1:20; Psalm 69; 2 Thessalonians 2; Revelation 17:10-11); his course is short, from the moment of his manifestation doomed to perdition. (See ANTICHRIST.)
