God's Will Be Done Over Traditions of Men

The scriptures tell us that ALL THINGS will be reconciled to God, that EVERY knee will bow and EVERY tongue will confess righteousness and strength in the Lord, that God is the Savior of ALL men especially those who believe, that Jesus tasted death for EVERY man, that He is a ransom for ALL, that Jesus is the propitiation for the sins of the WHOLE WORLD, that God is not willing that ANY should perish, that He will have ALL men to be saved, that His WILL be done, that Jesus will draw ALL men to Himself, that ALL we like sheep have gone astray and God has laid on Him the iniquity of us ALL, that God will NOT cast off forever nor be angry forever, that Jesus will defeat and DESTROY DEATH and the works of the devil so that THERE WILL BE NO MORE DEATH nor sorrow, that we WERE reconciled to God by the death of His Son while we were yet sinners and enemies, that God has bound us ALL in stubbornness that He might have mercy upon ALL, that He is the Lord of both the living AND THE DEAD, that EVERY creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea and everything in them will say "Blessing, and honour, and glory,
and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb", and that as in Adam ALL die, even so in Christ shall ALL be made alive, THAT GOD MIGHT BE
So, why have we been taught that MOST will suffer eternal torment?
is caused by the translation of the words "ETERNAL", "HELL", and "TORMENT.”
ETERNAL: And the angels that did not keep their own position but left their proper dwelling have been kept by him in eternal chains in the nether gloom until the judgment of the great day; just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
(Jude 1: 6) But "eternal" cannot mean "eternal", because God says, “I will restore their fortunes, both the fortunes of Sodom and her daughters, and the fortunes of Samaria and her daughters.” (Ezek 16: 53)
The Greek word is AION, which translates "eon", or "age", or "era." The King James Bible translates this word, and its adjective “aionios” as AGE, BEGINNING OF THE WORLD, COURSE, ETERNAL, EVER, FOR EVER, FOR EVER AND EVER, FOR EVER MORE, NEVER, WORLD, WORLD BEGAN, WORLD WITHOUT END, WHILE THE
WORLD STANDETH. Eternity isn't spoken of much in the scriptures. The story of the bible is the story of God's dealings with mankind on earth and in time.
