Thessalonians

1 Thessalonians is an early, short letter in which Paul's first teaching topic is sexual purity (4:3-8) and next is the impending general resurrection that he clearly expects in his lifetime (4:13-5:11).

That by no means all will be saved is clear from 2 Thessalonians, which has more to say about the colorful events of the end times.

Not for the first time in his correspondence, Paul castigates idleness, saying "Anyone unwilling to work should not eat."

Christian communism facing flawed humanity?
