- What is meant by "damnation?"
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done devil, unto the resurrection of damnation. (John 5:28-29)
- Are there different types of damnation spoken of in the Bible?
46 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
47 Which devour widows’ houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation. (Luke 20:46-47)
What would a "lesser damnation" be? (See discussion of "greater damnation" from Matthew 23:14 in link below)
- When does this occur in conjunction with the events described in Revelation 20:12-14?
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (Revelation 20:12-14)
- If damnation means going to hell, does that mean it is before the resurrection (Rev. 20:13), or is damnation something that occurs after the resurrection (John 5:29), and damnation is equivalent to the second death? Or would these be different types of damnation?
