Dear Ray Smith,

Dear Calvin:
Well, "aionios" DOES NOT mean eternal or everlasting. See my 50 page
paper: "Is EVERLSTING Scriptural?" That ends the discussion on all
Bible verses using the words "eternal or everlasting."
As for being "condemned" meaning that such an one "goes to HELL," I will
cite Mark 16:64, Jesus Himself "was CONDEMNED" so I guess Jesus went
to HELL also.
God be with you,
PS   Stop casting your pearls before these spiritual PIGS!
