How many don’t truly understand John 3:16
I did not at first realize exactly what it meant. For a long time I always thought if some one did not believe they would be in hell for eternity. But that is incorrect.
John 3:16 says “that whosoever believeth in him should not perish.” This is a strong statement.
Dr. Weymouth a Greek scholar says that he can not conceive how six words in the Greek tongue that signify “destroy” or “Destruction” can be taken to mean everlasting punishment.
Perish is equal to die, kill, destroyed, consumed, laid waste, go to nothing, vanish.
This in no way implies that the unjust shall receive everlasting punishment. Not to mention that Ezekiel 28:18 states that Satan will be turned to ashes! So how could anyone else be left.
Revelation makes clear that death and hell will be cast into the lake of fire. So they will be no more!
When Jesus said the believer would receive eternal life, but if you live forever in hell you still have eternal life, right? But they wont be around for ever after the white throne judgment they will cease to exist they will perish!
