It is a scientific fact that nothing in nature can be annihilated. It has been said that "everything perishes, yet nothing is lost." If the soul of man can pass into nothingness, then it is the only thing that can be annihilated. It is not likely that the most precious and marvellous thing God ever created is the only thing capable of descending into non-existence. Reason, common sense, Scripture, and the constitution of the soul alike declare their protest against such a thought. Spirit as well as matter can have many forms of existence and different spheres of being. "Because I live ye shall live also" (John 14:19).
