    Could a man drown in the fountain of eternal life?

    Yes a man could.
    He would just "die to self" completely, and live for God TOTALLY. smile

    Drowning is always an outcome if one's head is under water for longer than a minute or so.  The safest way to approach the fountain of eternal life would be with a pair of water-wings. Preferably inflated!  Then a man, or woman for that fact, would have a possibility of wallowing not swallowing.

    stanwshuraposted 12 years ago first I thought this was a catch-22.  But does "drowing" always mean to the point of death? 

    Depending on your point of view, or perhaps the splitting of hairs that the actual tense of the verb "drown", in context, is *always* future, used with "will", unless of of course it's the interrogative "could". 

    Even "you could drown" - is a future reference.

    Okay, okay.  So all that to argue that MAYBE you "can" drown - in the fountain of eternal life - but you would do so infinitely.

    HELL NO!  Could you imagine an infinity of the drowning sensation???   The only time torture like that does not eventually end - usually in death - is Hell.

    Oh, or maybe Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo. wink

    Sure, sure. He'll probably just end up with drowning for eternal life, which I must say, it certainly just going to look or feel good. Poor man!
