In a previous article we sought to exhibit the meaning of the words commonly
translated "for ever" and "eternal" in our A.V., and this naturally leads us
on to a consideration of the nature of the punishment of the unsaved. It is
held by many that "eternal conscious suffering" is a fundamental, and many
have been put out of meetings for being what is called "non-eternity" men. A
most important reason why we should be convinced of this matter is the awful
libel it must be on the name of God should it turn out to be untrue.
