Hell
« on: September 17, 2006, 11:03:16 AM »

WHAT A CROCK!  First, anyone with a lick of Scriptural knowledge knows that the word "hell" is not the proper translations of ANY word of divine Scripture.  Second, the thought of "everlasting" is also nowhere found in Scripture.  It was the Catholic Church that turned "Ages" into "ENDLESS Ages" in the Scriptures. See my paper:  "Is EVERLASTING Scriptural."  The Latin word "aeternum" (turned into our English word "eternal") NEVER meant EVER in the centuries following the Apostles.  The Latin aeternum was the equivelant of the Greek "aionion," and it never ever mean endless time.  Hence your "everlasting hell" theory is totaly unscriptural and anti-scriptural.  Be sure to read my series on "HELL" which is now in progress.
