Re: Eternal Conscious Torment (ECT)/Traditionalists Hell - April 26th 2012, 02:33 PM

In the meantime, I will say this, I didn't properly define aion, I thought by now it would be unnecessary. The word aion is used as age-lasting. So, it is indeed an adjective. I just say, "an age," because since this topic has been so thoroughly discussed, I didn't think it necessary to say otherwise. Though, if it even is the world eternal, annihilation, as you said, is eternal. The difference is the wicked are only told they will see death. While the righteous receive life. It seems inconsistent to think the NT writers meant death to mean, "eternal life while consciously suffering." You'd have to manipulate scripture far more to read death as anything but death. Especially when considering the OT.
