Re: Deathly

Eccl 9:5,6, 10

You're right that the most important part is remembering the Saviour and our relationship to Him. It just comforts me much more to know that He lovingly thought through all eventualities, considering the fact that ancestors would not want to watch their progeny suffer here on earth. That the sleep of death would provide the peace of nothingness until He returns to judge all.

IMO, the hell theme is related more to the references to the second death that I've seen in Revelation. [moreover, Thayer's lexicon suggests that the use of the phrase 'for ever and ever' (transliterated aion) in Rev 20:10 "denotes the allotted lifetime, even the life, of the individual" and therefore does not seem to refer to continuous [unlimited] time (transliterated dienekes). Blue Letter Bible Online has a Strong's and Thayer's and I just looked that up, cuz it got interesting to me.]

Pardon my longwindedness. s'pose some days i get esoteric. maybe i'll go listen to take 6 now. ;)

You think you are longwinded? You apparently didn't see my response to one comment on lutherans -- I had to trim a couple sentences because I was just over the letter limit for a single comment box! :)
