Freebase

  1. Damnation

    Damnation is the concept of everlasting divine punishment and/or disgrace, especially the punishment for sin as threatened by God. A damned being "in damnation" is said to be either in Hell, or living in a state wherein they are divorced from Heaven and/or in a state of disgrace from God's favor. Those Christians in purgatory, the "Church Suffering", are not considered damned, because their stay there is not eternal, while people who are damned to Hell will stay there eternally. Following the religious meaning, the words damn and goddamn are a common form of religious profanity, in modern times often semantically weakened to the status of mere interjections.

  4. Vernon Schutz:

    A resurrection waits in the future of all people, whether saved or lost, kingdom saints or the Body of Christ. 'Marvel not at this for the hour is coming, in which all that are in the graves shall hear His voice, and come forth they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation' (Jn. 528, 29).

  5. Emeasoba George:

    The END of anything/any human counts more than it's/his/her beginning. Yes of course, it's only he/she that endures to the end or rather holds firm to his/her faith that will be saved at last. Moreover, it's the end of a vision/aspiration/dream that proves whether it's ordinary or extraordinary, true or false. Also, it's he/she that perseveres/persists to the end that can/will leap/reap the reward for hard-work i.e. genuine success. Likewise, it's he/she that eventually reaches/crosses the finish line that emerges a winner in a race. Besides, it's your last thoughts/words/actions that will determine your salvation or damnation on the day of reckoning. As a matter of fact, it's better for you to begin badly in anything/something and afterwards end up well in it. Than for you to begin well in something/anything and afterwards end up badly in it. For, that will entail nothing else but only a tragedy. Anyway, all of the above illustrations evidently signifies that, the END of anything/something/any human truly counts more than it's/his/her beginning. Therefore, I urge you to be more concerned with your end or the end of anything/anyone rather than your/it's/his/her begining. For surely, the END is ever the BOTTOM LINE.
