    Perish

    "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

    "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand." (John 10:27-28)

    Luke 13:3 No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as well!

    Thessalonians 2:10 and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved.

    I am having a discussion with some Christians in my Bible study class who say that Perish/perishing could mean:

    " disconnectedness from God while we are alive here on earth and how sad and lonely that can be."

    or,

    "If my heart is empty and dead… Then I need God to live fully in my heart and I have a new heart"

    What do you guys think "perish/perishing" means in context?

    I put this in Biblical Languages because I thought maybe the Greek would say what perish means.

    Thanks.

    ἀπόλλυμι means "be destroyed". The angel of the bottomless pit (Rev. 9:11) is named Apollyon, "the destroyer".

    "Death" is θάνατος.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist
