Vain pursuits

It is the great and invincible truth of Christianity that there is no annihilation; all Nihilism is in vain. God may be fought: that is one of the meanings of the modern age; but He may not be conquered, and He may not be escaped: His Kingdom shall endure eternally, and all who reject the call to His Kingdom must burn in the flames of Hell forever. … It has, of course, been a primary intention of Nihilism to abolish Hell and the fear of Hell from men’s minds, and no one can doubt their success; Hell has become, for most people today, a folly and a superstition, if not a “sadistic” fantasy. Even those who still believe in the Liberal “heaven” have no room in their universe for any kind of Hell.

Fr. Seraphim (Rose)
