The beginning is obviously time. What else could beginning mean? God did not begin. Jesus is eternal. Time began then creation. How else could it be that there will be an end? Time began when God created it, else He would be slave to it.

Does not compute. Unique measures of time had a beginning, not time itself. Everlasting duration/sequence/succession is as eternal, everlasting, endless as specious timelessness. Love is eternal with God as a concept. This does not make God a slave to it. Time is an aspect of His personal experience. This makes Him personal, dynamic, not static rock. He is not a slave to duration, but freed by it. It is not a limitation for God like it is for us. His years are without end (Ps.). Our years on earth end. He is omnipotent and omniscient, unlike us. The issue is that only the present is actual for God and His creation. The past is memory and the future is not yet/anticipatory. This is the plain revelation on every page of Scripture free from philosophical, Platonic, Augustinian reasoning.
