Name and describe the view of Church history goes along with Jesus' statement that "the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church."

Bro. Bora, Weisser, Marvin Arnold.


Use Scripture to refute the Light Doctrine.

John 3:5, Acts 2:38-39, Acts 4:12.


6-8. Discuss the three-destination doctrine explaining what it is, and explain how they attempt to use these scriptures to "prove" their belief (2 Pet. 3:12-14 & Rev. 22:10-12).

It's the belief that there is a third place to go, not just heaven and hell. They say the new heaven and new earth in 2 Pet. is talking about two different places for the holy and righteous to go. They make a distinction between the holy and righteous in Rev. and say they'll be judged to different places.


9-11. Explain why three-destination believers are misreading these two sets of verses, and use Scripture to refute their belief.

In 2 Pet. "Wherein dwelt righteousness" refers to both new heaven & new earth. There is no distinction between the two regarding where righteousness dwells. Rev. It's using two different ways to talk about the people going to heaven and hell. (holy & righteous, filthy & unjust) there are four terms used not three. There is no in-between in the scripture.
Titus 2, Gal. 1:8-9.
