John Wycliffe and William Tyndale, celebrated Bible translators, both strongly denied soul-immortality. Tyndale wrote, “And you, in putting departed souls in heaven, hell, and purgatory, destroy the arguments where with Christ and Paul prove the resurrection, which we are warned to look for every hour…If the souls be in heaven, tell me why they be not in as good case as the angels be? And then what cause is there of the resurrection?” (This was said in answer to Sir Thomas Moore’s Dialogue, book 4, chapter 2.)
