Seventh Day Adventists believe that 'hell' describes the finite suffering of sinners which results in their destruction
The SDA church believes that upon death, souls enter a period of sleep preceding judgement day. On judgement day, there will be an undefined but not infinite period period of suffering for sinners which is not the traditional eternal hell, but rather the fires of destruction. Citing passages like Matthew 13:49 to the effect that hell is a destroying furnace, they also claim that:
The book of Malachi states that sinners will only burn until there is nothing left to burn.
The SDA church discounts references to 'eternal destruction' in the bible by pointing to the metaphorical uses of 'forever'. Their views are specifically set up against historic Christian beliefs which they view as lies meant to scare people into attending church.
