So far so good

It's a common phrase, and it came to mind the other day as I was reading in Psalm 103.  Verse 12 states
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.
So far? So good!

Spot the differences

I have been engaged quite a bit recently with those who deny conscious eternal punishment, and I have noticed a recurring problem with their view. When they see texts in the New Testament that appear to teach eternal conscious punishment they will often cite similar language from the Old Testament in which it seems quite clear that it is talking about a temporal punishment, and then they will say that this shows the New Testament isn't talking about eternal conscious punishment at all.
