    As there seems to be some advocating things like God will in the end save all, and God in mercy shall destroy the lost?

    There is no support for it in The Word of God. There is direct scripture against it in The Word of God. It is false doctrine. It is an attempt by many to make God conform to our image.

    You are starting to hear it quite often now. You hear it a lot in youth and college aged ministry. People want to make God conform to their image. By that, I mean they can not comprehend that His wrath is actually an element of His love. They see His wrath as being contrary to their image of love and they do not want to believe the literal Biblical teaching of His wrath.

    Sure, been around for a long time. It doesn't have anything to do with universalism, everyone will be saved. It is the belief that those who reject Jesus will be eventually totally destroyed, obliterated, ceasing to exist. Probably the most well known of modern times would be theologian John Stott who I believe has now passed. There are others if you cared to research it out. I don't have numbers, but it is definitely a minority view within Christianity and I would say rare among our Baptist breathern.

    This is a belief of the Jehovah's Witnesses.

    When God creates a New Heaven and New Earth, where will that leave those who are not part of that?
    It is an interesting thought...

    The heavens and earth are in three dimensions. In the NH-NE dwelleth righteousness.
    Again, where does that finally leave someone/something that is not within those three dimensions?

    And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: Isa 34:4a

    I've always been of the mind that once we go through the judgment at the Great White Throne, those that are cast out will be cast into the Lake of fire. What happens to them there is not for me to know.

    But that's just my opinion...

    The Bible states that satan will be tormented forever, so that would tell us the duration of the lost...

    Is this a possibility?

    Revelation 22
    14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
    15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
