I'm not into long-winded treatises, so I'm trying to be brief.  The Bible makes some specific statements that many either choose to ignore or they've never read the Bible - or they choose not to believe it.  The Book is like a jigsaw puzzle.  We need to look for the pieces and see how they fit together.

--No Heaven (or everyone will be there).
--No hell
--No satan
--Values are baseless.
--Nothing can be known or communicated.  [Seems pretty irrational to me.]

--"The view that unbelievers are finally annihilated and thus do not experience torment that is eternal in duration."

"A major component of the Seventh Day Adventist view of Annihilation is their view of death, which they believe to be the cessation of life." -- Dave Lowe, http://pweb.jps.net/~davejen/annihilation.htm (no longer online.)

There is a physical birth.  "Elohim breathed into Adam the breath of life and man became a living soul."

There is a spiritual birth by choice to receive eternal life.  "You must be born again."

There is a physical death.  "It is appointed unto man once to die, and after that the judgment."

There is a resurrection of all.  "Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah shall all be made alive."

Those who have been born again will live with Elohim eternally.  "For Elohim so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes on Him should not perish [i.e., DIE, CEASE TO LIVE] but have everlasting life."  For how long have how many in Christianity been taught that "should not perish" means "will live forever in hell" in direct contradiction to the next phrase, "but have everlasting life"?
   In full: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not live forever in hell, but have everlasting life."  Sort of contratictory, isn't it?  There's only one choice for "everlasting life," and that's believing in the Father and his son (see John 5:24 again, and John 12:44).

There is a spiritual death (the second death) for those who have not been born again (born of the spirit).  "He that doesn’t believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of Elohim abides on him."  "This is the second death."  ("Shall not see life:" He's speaking to someone who is physically alive, so obviously this doesn't mean physical life, but eternal life."

Born once - live twice - die twice, or
Born twice - live twice - die once.
