I have a quick question or two. While talking to someone, they told me that they looked up aionios in their lexicon and it defined the word as everlasting. What would you say to this person? And does anyone know where I can get a lexicon that defines aionios the right way? Thanks . Jude 1:7
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal/aionios
Does Sodom stil burn? No then at best eternal can be one of the defenitions instead of the only one.
There is also a verse that states Sodom will be restored.Ezekiel 16:55
When thy sisters, Sodom
and her daughters, shall return to their former estate
, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate.
Ahum! Something to make a simple answer complicated.... Hebrews 5:9
And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal/aionios salvation
unto all them that obey him;
