      Eternity is time with an adjective: It is endless time. Eternity is not, as in Platonic and Neoplatonic thought, supratemporal or nontemporal. In religions where eternity is radically contrasted with time, time is seen as an illusion, or utterly subjective, or an ephemeral episode. God and the higher realities are held to be "beyond.".   InImages and Symbols: Studies in Religious Symbolism(), Mircea Eliade* focuses on the Indian symbols of time and eternity and the function of myth as an account of events that took place in the beginning. In the beginning was a primordial, non-temporal instant, or a moment of sacred or Great Time. Myth takes the person out of their own subjective time, .

Introduction To Time This essay is about various aspects and dimensions of time. To a scientist, time is a relatively simple matter, but when one gets into the Bible time has qualitative and subjective aspectsthere is much more to consider.

    God is the 'high and lofty One who inhabits eternity', [1] declared the prophet Isaiah, but exactly how we are to understand the notion of eternity is not clear. Traditionally, the Christian church has taken it to mean 'timeless'. But in his classic work on this subject, Oscar Cullmann has contended that the New Testament 'does not make a philosophical, qualitative distinction between time . Eternity is the second book I’ve read by Maggie Shayne (the other being ‘Texas Homecoming’), and by now I think it’s safe to say that her books just aren’t for me. I can’t exactly pinpoint why, but both books just didn’t suck me in, and in both cases I got bored, skimmed an awful lot, and just gave up at some point.4/5().
