is cherry-picking verses to reach a predetermined conclusion. I can provide dozens of verses that show the Greek term, aionion, is used in identical manner when speaking of either eternal life or eternal death. Here are just two:
"I give them eternal [aionion] life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand." John 10:28
"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal [aionion] fire prepared for the devil and his angels." Matthew 25:41
To reject eternal punishment would necessitate rejecting eternal life.
