RE: Heaven or hell


Grace, mercy and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus.

And to you.

I really don't want to sound judgmental here, but this is exactly the sort of question that gets Christians going for each others' throats.

Why should it? We can disagree without being disagreeable can't we?

I do have an answer to that question; the answer satisfies me. I think it's Scriptural and in keeping with what Christians have believed for an awfully long time. But what good would it do to share that answer? Maybe I'm just short-sighted. I don't know. But this much I do know: If I die immediately after posting this comment, I'm going to heaven. I don't know whether I go to heaven immediately after I die, or whether I sleep in the ground until Christ returns, but this much I DO know. I'm going.

My idea is different. I agree with the Apostle Paul who said:

1 Corinthians 4:5
Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

Therefore, whether I am saved or not is not for me to decide. I hope in God completely.
