Gokioli_ A Neologism From The God Kind Of Life

October 29, 2012

Our emphasis is on the word ‘everlasting’. Literally, it is synonymous with eternal, forever and timeless. In other words, what the scripture connotes is if man, irrespective of status or culture, can believe in the supremacy of God’s begotten Son, Jesus Christ, he will have the God kind of life; a life that possesses the everlasting, forever or eternal state.
The word ‘everlasting’ as used in this scriptural context derives its root meaning from the Greek word Zoë, meaning the God kind of life_an incorruptible, upright and righteous life. However, there is a conflicting recognition of the word in terms of its usage. How?
The word ‘everlasting’, in this context, is literally ambiguous in the light of the eventual destination of man_heaven and hell. Simply put, ‘everlasting’
can be used in the recognition of man spending his timeless life (eternity) in heaven or hell. It is possible men spends eternity or live an everlasting or eternal life in heaven or hell.
To this day, there is no true English equivalent of the Greek-originated Zoë. Precisely, there is no specific translation of Zoë to English language. Can there be an exact English translation of Zoë?

A suggestion comes into the picture_a neologism (coinage) from the God kind of life. It is an intended replacement or precise (true) translation of the terms used in some versions of the bible; ‘everlasting’, ‘forever’ and ‘eternal’. The coined term is GOKIOLI, meaning the God kind of life or
GO-God
KI-Kind
O-Of
LI-Life.
Therefore, the familiar scripture: ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life now becomes ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have GOKIOLI’.This is possible only if this neologism is considered. Remember, it is only a suggestion!
