We must now consider the fire of the final conflagration: and under this head there are nine points of inquiry:
A Whether any cleansing of the world is to take place?
A Whether it will be effected by fire?
A Whether that fire is of the same species as elemental fire?
A Whether that fire will cleanse also the higher heavens?
A Whether that fire will consume the other elements?
A Whether it will cleanse all the elements?
A Whether that fire precedes or follows the judgment?
A Whether men are to be consumed by that fire?
A Whether the wicked will be involved therein?
