Eternal?

Hi Ray
 
Just a short question. What is the difference between Immortality and Eternal Life. Thanks so much for opening up my spiritual eyes.

Dear Kenny:
"Eternal" is a word that came from the Latin "eternus" or "eternum" and from "avum" which ultimately came from "aion" of the Greek.  And so it is a word that NEVER meant endless. It is a word that was taught over centuries to mean "endless," when in fact the word and its roots never meant any such thing.  Eternal means endless: without beginning and without end.  Immortality has nothing to do with time, as it means "death-less-ness."  Unable to ever die.
God be with you,
Ray
