Was reading this tonight and wondered if someone may have an opinion about it:
6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” (link)
Obviously we know the meaning of the terms, “unbelieving, vile, murderers”, and what it means to practice sexually immorality, and the magic arts; also the definition of idolaters and liars….but this list includes the cowardly as well. In fact the cowardly leads the list.
What do you think that means…”the cowardly?”
I have an idea but am not sure….any thoughts?
