Appendix by William Robert West, WHAT ABOUT ENOCH AND ELIJAH?
By William Robert West
E. D. Slough was the preacher at the church of Christ; Terre Haute,
Indiana in 1914 when, “The Indictment Of Eternal Torment, The Self-
negation Of A Monstrous Doctrine” was printed. It has long been out of
print and used copies are hard to find. It is now in pubic domain and can
be printed by anyone.
His book is ever bit as good as “The Fire That Consumes” by Edward
Fudge, but it did not receive much circulation. Brother Fudge believes
there is a Hell and all the lost will be in it, but believes it will be a short
Hell that will end with the death of those that has been in Hell for a
while, and they will be tormented by God for as long as they are in Hell.
The fate of those not in Christ according to:
? According to Slough
o Death – Resurrection – Judgment – Second death
? According to Fudge
o Death – Resurrection – Judgment – Hell – Second death
During the Judgment there most likely will be fear and regret when
the lost see what they have lost by not being a Christian. Fudge then
adds a place between the Judgment and the second death that is not in
the Bible, names it “Hell” and says God will torment the lost, some with
more torment, some with less torment before the second death.
For the most part this book is excellent.
