Reese Watt -- Hell Research

He classifies all the scriptures that speak on the subject of final punishment into four categories:

  1. eternal torment: the “traditional” idea of eternal conscious torment in a blazing, unquenchable, torturous fire
  2. annihilation: God puts the wicked out of their misery, annihilating them so that they cease to exist
  3. universal repentance: also known as “universalism,” eventually everyone repents and gets out of hell
  4. neutral: texts here could endorse any of the previous three views
