I've heard these terms all my life, in a particular context, and never considered that their might be a different context in which to view them. But, then I read something that sorta piqued my interest. So I'm gonna ask some questions and hopefully someone around here will know the answers. What is the difference, if there is one, in the terms "everlasting" and "eternal"? Along the same line, what is difference in everlasting/eternal and immortality (another term used in the Bible, though not in the exact same context). Satan seems to already possess "eternal" life. As do the angels. How does their eternal life compare to what ours will be? From whence do Christians find their interpretation of what eternal or everlasting life will be like or mean once we have passed from this life? Why would we want such a thing? (beside the fact that we'd be doomed to hell) Back to the beginning (Genesis), with only the info given, do you believe that Adam had ANY understanding of death or eternal/everlasting life? Give me scripture where you can please!
