A short note on eternal in Greek:
A question by a believer:
Is ‘aidios’ or ‘aeternam’ (eternal)?
aidios and aidiois is eternal… long story on the two occurence only in the bible but it’s NEVER applied to MAN. Once it is applied to the “eternal power of the godhead” (romans?) whilst the other to the “chains” binding the apostate angels in Jude…
It only proves aion-aionion derivations used for “man” are limited and lasting to a future “age” only. Why? simply because the real Greek word for eternal such as aidios is NEVER used to describe the “punishment” (duration) especially for MAN. Note that the very fact that the bible contains aidios & aidiois proves that these real Greek words for “everlasting” existed during the time of Christ but the very fact they were NOT used to describe the “duration” of the punishments itself implies that those punishments are NOT eternal (lasting to an age or to ages only).
