“Weeping and gnashing of teeth” means weeping and gnashing of teeth and “forever and ever” means what it says.

From his comment (#3735) on [Video] Dan Corner Interview: The Believer’s Conditional Security
My belief is that I accept the Bible as inspired by the Holy Spirit. I don’t think it likely that God The Holy Spirit speaks in suppositions or the hypothetical but rather in the stability of truth.
The Bible does warn about those who promote falsehood, Matt 7:15-16, 21-23; 2 Cor 11:13-15; 2 Tim 4:2-4; Rev 22:18-19 and other places. Manipulators, false teachers and false preachers, some even unaware themselves as being false, turn truth into pretzel-shaped distortions. Sometimes they dismiss bothersome passages as merely hypothetical or of some alleged supposition.
In all of this I think it’s a good idea for me to rely on the whole counsel of God.“Weeping and gnashing of teeth” means weeping and gnashing of teeth and “forever and ever” means what it says.
