ImagineOne: 1 Corinthians 15:21-28
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
X1CAuron: Not alot of people have Christ in them, or in christ. so there not made alive if there not in christ. GOD desires that everyone be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth, but many will not come and be saved.
ImagineOne: Matthew 25:46
Does Eternal Punishment have to be as long as Eternal life because the adjective “aionios” is used to describe both punishment and life?
The following will prove that “everlasting punishment” in Matthew 25:46 is a MIStranslation in many of the current leading selling English Bible translations including the King James Version, New International Standard Version, New American Standard Version, New Revised Standard Version, the Amplified Bible, The Net Bible, New Century Version, New Living Translation, International Standard Version, English Standard Version as well as many others. This correction is crucial in regards to having a proper understanding of the nature and character of God and His role as a righteous judge. Just because “aionios” is used to describe life and punishment, does not mean they have to be of the same length and quality any more than a “small” house has to be the same size as a “small” ring because the same adjective is used to describe both. Often adjectives take on some of the value of the word they describe. Therefore, “kolasin aionion” (mistranslated “everlasting punishment”) does not have to be the same length as “zoen aionion” (mistranslated “eternal life”). Aionion should not have been translated “everlasting” because aion and its adjective are clearly time words that have beginnings and endings. And “punishment” for the Greek “kolasin” is too strong a word. Kolasin means “to prune a tree to make it more fruitful.” There is nothing fruitful about eternal damnation in burning flames. If Jesus wanted to imply vindictive punishment, the author of Matthew could have chosen the Greek word “timoria,” but he didn’t – he used a much softer word. Furthermore, Matthew 25:46 does not speak of individual salvation based upon faith in Christ, it speaks of separation of nations based upon how they treated Jesus. And lastly, the context seems to indicate the judgments would be upon the religious leadership of Israel and those who considered themselves righteous, not street sinners, low-life Jews and/or adherents to other religious systems, that is, the Gentiles.)
Too frequently Bible teachers and students take a small portion of Scripture out of context and build an entire doctrine on it. This is the case with Matthew 25:46. In the entire Greek New Testament we find the Greek words “kolasin aionion” occurring only a single time. This phrase has been translated “everlasting punishment” by most of the leading selling English Bible translations. The very foundation of most of modern Christianity is built upon salvation FROM eternal punishment in a place called Hell through faith in Jesus Christ. Yet the truth of the matter is that the concept of salvation being deliverance from “eternal punishment” is utterly false. The concept of “everlasting punishment” does NOT exist in either the Hebrew nor the Greek languages of the Christian Scriptures. Yes, it does exist in “some” leading selling English Bible translations, but not in the original languages of the Bible. Many outstanding Christian scholars are beginning to agree with what the early believers in Christ knew that salvation through Jesus Christ was deliverance from DEATH, not from everlasting life being tormented forever. The wages of sin have ALWAYS been death, NEVER everlasting punishment. People who died prior to Christ’s resurrection were asleep, the dead knew nothing, they couldn’t praise God, they were unconscious in “Sheol.” Everyone went to this one place, “Sheol.” Abraham, Moses, David, the Pharaoh, the King of Babylon and the street sinner whether Jew or Gentile, their bodies went into the grave and their soul went to “Sheol.” This was the understanding the Jews had regarding death until after the Babylonian captivity. After that time, some Jews began to write material later named “Apocrypha” that compartmentalized “Sheol” after the order of the Zorastrianism found in Persia. These writings are extra-biblical. The Jews do not have these writings in their Bible, nor do most Protestant Bibles. However, these writings did get into the Septuagint (Greek Old Testament) used by the early church. That is one of the ways the teaching of Hell entered into Christianity. But remember, we do NOT find such a concept in the Torah (Pentateuch, first five books of the Bible). We do NOT find such a concept in any portion of the law given to and through Moses. The Hebrew prophets know of no such a compartmentalization, nor do we find anything remotely close to such a thing in the Wisdom writings of the Old Covenant. Clearly, it is a “tradition of men which makes the word of God of no effect.” Jesus rebuked the Jewish leadership of His day for doing that. Jesus came to empty the place of the dead. The early church clearly taught that Jesus went into “Sheol,” preached to those who were disobedient in the days of Noah and “led captivity captive.” Only the Spirit of God could bring people out of the grave.

"It is finished." (John 19:30) T or F
What is finished? What did Jesus come to do? When John and James wanted to call fire down on the Samaritans' heads because they did not believe Jesus was the Son of God, who did Jesus condemn, His disciples or the Samaritans for not believing the gospel directly from the apostles' own mouth?
"But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." And they went on to another village." (Luke 9:55, 56) Dear Christian, think! These Samaritans, who knew the Law of Moses, rejected disciples who personally knew Jesus AND rejected Jesus Himself. Why didn't Jesus do what the typical modern evangelist do, condemn them to Hell because they didn't "decide to follow Jesus," they "didn't give their hearts to the Lord." According to the modern traditional gospel, these Samaritans were given the chance to go to heaven but they rejected the way. Yet Jesus didn't condemn them - He condemned His own disciples for behaving the way the typical Christian behaves today.
Jesus came to save the world, not just a part of it. If He succeeded, then He could rightfully be called the "Savior of the world." But if He failed, then not only could He not claim that title, He could not be the Messiah because He would have failed in the mission of the Messiah.
