Last Judgment (Cont.) (Chadwick) n. 1

Next Number Next Translation See Latin 

1. I THE LAST JUDGMENT HAS BEEN COMPLETED My earlier work on THE LAST JUDGMENT dealt with the following subjects. The day of the Last Judgment does not mean the destruction of the world (LJ 1-5). The reproduction of the human race will never cease (LJ 6-13). Heaven and Hell are from the human race (LJ 14-22). All people who have ever been born since the beginning of creation and have died are in heaven or in hell (LJ 23-27). The Last Judgment is to be where all are together, and so in the spiritual world, not on earth (LJ 28-32). The Last Judgment takes place when a church comes to an end; and this happens when there is no faith because there is no charity (LJ 33-39). All the predictions made in the Book of Revelation are today fulfilled (LJ 40-44). The Last Judgment has taken place (LJ 45-52). On Babylon and its destruction (LJ 53-64); on the former heaven and its abolition (LJ 65-72); on the future state of the world and the church (LJ 73, 74).
