how to tell the biblical story in a way that makes a difference

If Revelation 20-21 is anything to go by, all the dead are raised and judged according to what they have done. Those whose names are not written in the book of life (which is perhaps different to the Lamb’s book of life—don’t have time to give the references) are thrown into the lake of fire which is the second death. I think that this is simply a restatement of the final judgment of death and destruction on human wickedness. By the way, I don’t think it’s correct to think of being raised to “live in a consecrated kingdom”, but that’s another issue.
