Eternal Life is Quality, Not Quantity

I saw your discussion about eternal hell in the title “The True Meaning of Forever, Everlasting and Hell.

In it you make attempts at proving that everlasting does not mean forever and ever.  So tell me what to make of Jesus’ words in John 3:16 when he says God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in him has eternal life.  If eternal does not mean forever and ever then what exactly is Jesus saying in this verse.

Are you saying when scripture talks of punishment for eternity it doesn’t mean that but that when we read about eternal life we can beleieve that means forever and ever?  I am quite confused by what you write.

“Eternal life,” Charles, is a quality of life, not quantity. Notice that there’s no such thing as “eternal death” in the Scriptures. 

The Lord said to one man, “Follow Me; and let the dead bury their dead” (Matthew 8:22). There are those living in this world who are dead because they don’t have eternal life. They are dead to God. That’s you; you’re dead, and that’s why you don’t understand these things. You’ve been born of the flesh, but not of the Spirit:

John 3:1-6 MKJV

(1)  And there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
(2)  He came to Jesus by night and said to Him, Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God; for no man can do these miracles which you do unless God is with him.
(3)  Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a man is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.
(4)  Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb and be born?
(5)  Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.
(6)  That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

“It is the Spirit that makes alive, the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit and are life” (John 6:63 MKJV).

There’s more on this matter in Satan’s Redemption (do a search – control F – on “perfectly punished”), which by opposing it in your indoctrination, you oppose your own redemption.

Praying for Your Spouse to Return
From: Sylvia To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, April 06, 2016 9:10 PM Subject: Worth Praying For my husband to be back? Greetings,  Thank you so much for the wisdom shared in your article(are all marriages of God?); I have indeed been blessed by it. I met my husband as an illegal immigrant in the UK and after helping him secure his stay in the country, now living with another woman, with whom he has an 8-month old baby. My wish before I met him was to get married before having children. I was robbed of this privilege in helping him to secure his stay as we were advised that his spousal visa application would be more successful if he shows he has a family in the UK. I regret so much that I disappointed God and myself but I have asked for forgiveness and I know He has indeed forgiven me. The application was indeed a success but it has turned out he only came into my life for what he could could gain from me.  Despite attempts to get him to do what is right, he has left me to raise our two daughters(two and five years of age) on my own. He shows no care for them and I. He really has been wicked towards the children and I. I'm still praying for God to change his heart but sometimes, I feel I am praying in vain as doubt it is not right to pray for him to be back, though that is the only decision that gives me peace!  Please advise me. I just want to live by His will, not mine!  I have shortened my story in order to be as concise as possible, please ...

Questions on the Trinity Answered
From: Jock To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, April 22, 2016 10:31 PM Subject: Trinity? So I started reading about Todd White, which lead me to another false teacher you mentioned, then to the Trinity. I noticed you take a hard line against it. Implying that it's a false teaching and saying that the scriptures used to validate it aren't found until later on, which I'm sure you're talking about 1 John 5:7 where the Bible says, "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one" which came about after the "Council of Nicaea" in 325AD so I wanted to ask a few questions regarding some scriptures. Matthew 3:17 "And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" Matthew 17:5 " While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. Like verses in Mark, Luke etc. Additionally, Acts 7:55-56; Romans 8:34; Ephesians 1:20; Colossians 3:1; Hebrews 1:3, 8:8, 10:12,12:2; 1 Peter 3:22, Revelations 3: 21; Matthew 22:44; Acts 2:33 Which all talk about Jesus sitting at the right hand of God. How's that possible unless they're different entities within One, such as the Trinity suggest? Furthermore, in 1 John 2:1 "My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the ri...
