Response to The second death is a horrible thing
Rev 20:14-15 --
14 And death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
-- Who's name is NOT written in the Book of Life...?
Romans 5:18 --
Jesus died so that We ALLL shall Live.
So then as through one transgression
There resulted condemnation to all men,
Even so through one act of righteousness
There resulted justification of life to all men.
Hebrews 9:23-28 --
Death comes but Once...
23 Therefore it was necessary for the copies of the things in the heavens to be cleansed with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us; 25 nor was it that He would offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the holy place year by year with blood that is not his own. 26 Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, 28 so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.
And Then... The Judgment.
Without reference to "sin"...
The Verdict can only be ...
The Penalty for "sin" has been paid in full.
-- Jesus Christ died...
-- For All.
