What does eternal mean? Does it mean going on forever (like a ray)? Or does it mean existing forever int he past and forever in the future (like a line)? Well, God is eternal because He has exited from eternity past and will exist into eternity future. We are everlasting, existing into eternity future. But, we have not existed from eternity past. The Saved will spend eternity in Heaved and the Unsaved in Hell. We will all exist for eternity though.
