The following indisputable FACTS from our English Bible illustrate commonly accepted translations are faulty works of men that hide the Words of God...
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
Certainly the doctrine of endless torture is never stated in the Hebrew Scripture! There are not even any translations containing such words to dispute. Dupes of traditions from men of reprobate minds, many of them commiting adultery with Religious Institutions for which they are rewarded positions and profit, are ignorant of the true God as manifested in Jesus Christ. Some misguided souls do not even accept as Christians those with a different eschatology than their own, such as those who believe in the larger hope. For something eternal tormenters give such an vastly over inflated value to, it is remarkable there is no record of God ever mentioning it for 4,ooo years! The morally depraved and thoroughly repugnant permanant evil of ceaseless torture is so clearly and easily shown to be false, being primarily mistranslations, that Jesus, the Savior of All, may be readily commended to any conscientious follower of the Holy Spirit desiring to walk in uncompromised love. The following makes clear that the English Bible cannot mean everlasting when it says everlasting!

Sodom's fiery judgment is "eternal" (Jude 7)—until—God "will restore the fortunes of Sodom" (Ez. 16:53-55);

Israel's "affliction is incurable" (Jer. 30:12)—until—the Lord "will restore health" and heal her wounds (Jer. 30:17);

The sin of Samaria "is incurable" (Mic. 1:9)—until—the Lord "will restore . . . the fortunes of Samaria." (Ez. 16:53);

Ammon is to become a "wasteland forever" and "rise no more" (Zeph. 2:9, Jer. 25:27)—until—the Lord will "restore the fortunes of the Ammonites" (Jer. 49:6);

An Ammonite or Moabite is forbidden to enter the Lord's congregation "forever"—
until—the tenth generation (Deut. 23:3);

Habakkuk tells us of mountains that were "everlasting", that is—until—they "were shattered" (Hab. 3:6);

The fire for Israel's sin offering (of a ram without blemish) is never to be put out. It shall be "perpetual"—until—Christ, the Lamb of God, dies for our sins. We now have a better covenant established on better promises (Lev. 6:12-13, Heb. 8:6-13);

God's waves of wrath roll over Jonah "forever"—until—the Lord delivers him from the large fish's belly on the third day (Jonah 2:6,10; 1:17);

Egypt and Elam will "rise no more" (Jer. 25:27)—until—the Lord will "restore the fortunes of Egypt" (Ez. 29:14) and "restore the fortunes of Elam" (Jer. 49:39).

"Moab is destroyed" (Jer. 48:4,42)—until—the Lord "will restore the fortunes of Moab" (Jer. 48:47);

Israel's judgment lasts "forever"—until—the Spirit is poured out and God restores it (Isa. 32:13-15).

Lack of experience and knowledge cannot be remedied if you're taught to be deaf and blind. God sees and hears everything. He's not deceived or defiled. To be like Him is the Image of your destiny. The spirit of deception is identified by an inability to listen, specifically to talk about God by those of God. (conf., 1 Jn 4.5-6) Don't think whatever the label "orthodoxy" is trumpeted before by bought religious elite who give titles of honor to one another must therefore be true. What it really is (now think about this) is the popular consensus at any given time among Institutionally owned professionals who believe they should have the microphone.

To illustrate the inconsistency of the translators, in the following passages the Greek word translated with
"eternity" in English is consistently so translated. Consider how illogical the Holy Spirit would appear saying,

"which God, who does not lie promised before the beginning of eternity (
literally: before times aeonian)" (Tit 1:2);

"according to the revelation of the mystery hidden for eternity past
(literally: in times aeonian)" (Rom 16:25);

"we speak
the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the eternities (literally: before the eons) unto our glory: which none of the princes of this world (literally: this aeon) knew..."(1 Cor 2:7-8) this says there is before at least two or more in the past;

"who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil eternity (
literally: this present wicked aeon)" (Gal 1:4);

"who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming eternity (literally: impending aeon)" (Heb.6:5.)

"that in the eternities to come (literally: aeons to come) he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus;" (Eph 2:7) this says there are two or more in the future;

"the harvest is the end of this eternity (literally: conclusion of the aeon)" (Matt 13:39);

"now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the eternities (literally: the ends of the aeons) are come;" (1Cor 10:11) this says they all end!

If I'm deceived it's the fault of Scripture itself. Consistent rendering not only works, it's to be preferred, though it has little to do with settling the larger question. Most people only think it does because they're ignorant of what is or is not written in Holy Scripture.
Never the less, for those who consider Scripture to be the authority for faith and practice this information should be decisive. Those who don't bother reading it will give an explanation why in that great day. Those who do read it but refuse to bow their proud necks will have more to answer for.

Here's THE TRUTH of Holy Scriptures indicating the distinctive facts from the original language...
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
Greek: "eon,-s, -ian," the word over which is pasted "world" 43 times, "ever" 73 times, "everlasting" 25 times, "eternal' 44 times, etc. which teaches us that:
There is "before the eons" (2 Tim 1:9);
a minimum of 2 in the past, "hid from the eons" (Col 1:26);
one present, "this eon" (Lk 20:34);
a minimum of 2 in the future
, "eons to come" (Eph 2:7),
hence a minimum of 5 eons are indicated
and there is after the eons, "the end of the eons" (Heb 9:26).
There also is "the purpose of the eons" (Eph 3:8-9; additionally, Eph 1:9-11, Phil 2:9-11, Col 1:15-21, 1 Cor 15:20-28.)
(The eons are long periods of time set off by cataclysms and deal with the time aspect as the world deals with the cosmic or constitutional aspect.)

For comparison, similar words apply to something in space, the tabernacle or temple. There is the holy (sing) place; then there are the 2 holies (plural), the holy (sing) place and the holy (sing) of holies (plural); taken together, these 2 are the holies (plural) of the holies (plural). The phrase "the holies of the holies" does not signify an infinite number of holies as the phrase "eons of the eons" does not apply to an infinite succession of eons or timeless infinity. "The eons of the eons" applies only to the last 2 eons, being the culminating outcome of all the eons.
