These seven points were given by the pastor I grew up under. Do you agree or disagree? I am not sure where he got them or if they are his own points. 7 POINTS REFUTING THE DOCTRINE OF DEGREES OF PUNISHMENT 1. It teaches that God can be partially propitiatory. 1st John 2:2 refutes this. 2. It destroys the true issue of Christ: it makes one rejecter of God’s Grace get a less degree of punishment than another rejecter of God’s Grace. 3. You can’t assume the antithesis of a Biblical Thesis to be true unless it is stated in the Bible A. A true Biblical thesis & antithesis 1st John 5:12 B. An Antithesis assumed from the thesis 1st Corinthians 3:12-15 4. It denies the law of double jeopardy-God doesn’t require two payments for sin. John 1:29; 2nd Cor. 5:21; 1st Peter 3:18. 5. Live the best you can so you won’t get a bad degree of punishment becomes a criteria of its advocates. 6. There are no cool spots in the “lake of Fire” the final destiny of all unbelievers Rev. 20:14-15. 7. There is no degree of unbelief i.e. you are either saved or lost.
