    • n annihilationist One who denies the existence of the soul after death; one who denies immortality. Specifically In theology, one who believes that annihilation is the final doom of the incorrigibly wicked. Annihilationists are of two classes: those who believe that annihilation will be inflicted by God as a peculiar doom upon the wicked, and those who believe that immortality is not a natural attribute of man, but is conferred by God on those who through faith become partakers of the divine nature.
