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.

Sodom Judges a Hellfire Preacher
From: Gerald To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, January 15, 2016 1:45 PM Subject: Heaven and Hell are Real Num 16:31  And it came to pass, as he had made an end of speaking all these words, that the ground clave asunder that was under them:  Num 16:32  And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.  Num 16:33  They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.  Num 16:34  And all Israel that were round about them fled at the cry of them: for they said, Lest the earth swallow us up also.  Num 16:35  And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense. The God you are presenting is different from the one i Know from the bible. He hates Sin to the extent of intending to wipe out a whole generation.  Gen 6:6  And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.  Gen 6:7  And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. God did drown a whole generation because of Sin, and what about Soddom and Gomorrah. Where are they today. Please tell people the truth. God will and has punished people by fire unless they repent.

Proverbes 1751-2000
English – French « Et de plus, parce que le prédicateur était sage, il a encore enseigné la connaissance au peuple; et il a pesé et sondé, et mis en ordre beaucoup de proverbes. Le prédicateur s’est étudié à trouver des paroles agréables; et ce qui a été écrit est droit, des paroles de vérité. Les paroles des sages sont comme des aiguillons, et les recueils, comme des clous enfoncés: ils sont donnés par un seul Berger. » (Ecclésiaste 12, 9-11.) Au milieu de la nuit du 15 au 16 avril 2007, des proverbes m’ont été donnés. Comme un robinet ouvert, ils vinrent, l’un après l’autre, 78 au total. Alors, aussi vite qu’ils étaient venus, ils cessèrent, comme un robinet que l’on ferme. Il n’y eut aucune préméditation, aucune attente et lorsque la fin arriva, il n’y eut rien que je puisse faire pour continuer. Ils étaient là, tout simplement. Depuis lors le Seigneur m’en a donné davantage, lorsque je suis silencieux, à Sa façon, et quand Il le veut. Les principes de la vie ont de nombreuses manifestations, chacune d’entre elles pouvant être exprimée comme un proverbe. Un proverbe peut apparaître simple en surface, exprimant une évidence, au point même de donner l’impression que c’est un simplet qui parle. Cependant, à mesure qu’une personne contemple les mots et recherche une signification plus profonde, il ou elle sera récompensé (e) d’un conseil et d’un discernement qui sert bien dans de nombreuses applications de la vie, si Dieu choisit de les lui impartir.

Dealing with Demonic Possession and Confusion
From: Kisa To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, March 31, 2016 1:16 PM I am in need of help. I'm a mother of 3 and dealing with some strange experiences. My whole life something has felt wrong. I said the prayer when I was 5...nothing....re dedicated my life to Christ as a teen....nothing. I have not attended church my adult life. About two years ago I started to feel a tingling sensation in my feet. Then a cold sensation that sweeps up my spine and     now kind of all over. I had no idea what is was. Through my searching I found out about kundalini. It mentioned it being the same thing as the holy spirit energy. It scared me.I had no idea. I've been suffering from a really heavy feeling. I got into the bible for weeks. Questioned my mom about the baptism of the holy spirit. She didn't know. Long story short I ended up reading about chakras, goddess energy, crystals, grounding in mother earth and energy healing. I kept searching and searching because I could never settle on anything. Nothing seemed right. I have done a couple of sacral energy healing at a local therapy place. I wasn't trying to open up anything. Just get rid of the energy feeling. Im dizzy all the time.I asked him to focus on my foread because I had a lot of pressure.  I asked about ancestor curses because all the women in my family for generations suffer from extreme fatigue. No medical explanation?? Recently it has gotten so bad. He said I had an entity attached to me and we tried to g...
