1 Timothy 2:4 NIV

'God our Savior [sic] who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth'.

Anticipating his suffering and death, Jesus proclaims,

John 12:31-32 NIV

Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. And I, when I am lifted upg from the earth, will draw all people to myself.

Do the above verses tell us that, after Jesus saved man, eternal damnation no longer exist?

Different traditions have very different answers to this question (as different as "yes" and "no", that is!). Also, I think… is basically the same question. Can you differentiate this question from that one in some way? – James T Oct 20 '13 at 0:57
I'm not sure what this means. Pure logic tells us that if it ever existed, it still exists. Follow this: If it ever existed, and it was "eternal" than by definition anyone who was damned eternally is... *still eternally damned. If that's the case, then it obviously still exists. – David Oct 20 '13 at 2:36
The version of Christianity that I understand would say that there is only with God and without God. Giving Satan his own "hell" would make him like a god. Being without God is eternal damnation as there would be no afterlife. I don't believe that we'll be pushing boulders uphill perpetually or any other such nonsense. – The Freemason Oct 20 '13 at 2:38

Yes. Eternal Damnation does exist.

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. -Revelation 20:10
