agreed people might think they understand eternity but they don't eternity doesn't mean forever. it means the absence of time, God created time just so our finite minds could digest what is happening no one can understand the absence of time/eternity, but the bible is clear about eternity
i for one believe that it is when people think they understand that they don't have the slightest clue, be it eternity or election, so i am glad he admits it is hard to understand
anyone that claims to grasp eternity is a fool
