What Is Everlasting Fire in the Bible?

Doesn't the phrase “everlasting fire” mean “unending”? It says everlasting, that means it's going to burn forever and ever. Let's find out. Jude verse 7, “Even as Sodom and Gomorrah are set forth for an example, suffering the Vengeance of eternal fire." Sodom and Gomorrah were burnt up with eternal fire. Are they still burning today?

No. I've been to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, and those cities are destroyed. Matter of fact, if you go to the south end of the Dead Sea, there's a hilly area there that is just piles of ash, and embedded in the ash, are little sulfur balls. I have one of them in my apartment in California, in my house in California. You can set them on fire and they burn. It's like they're leftovers from the destruction. Only place in the world, where you find something like that. Sulfur balls embedded in ash at the south end of the Dead Sea. That makes me think that the story is real.
