Open forum time. Lots of people want to talk about lots of things off topic. So here’s your opportunity to speak your mind. To kick off Open Forum XI, let’s see what you think about heaven, hell and people who die.
Generally, when somebody [famous] dies, people are quick to teleport them into heaven. Death seems to jumpstart the whole issue of whether we (as the Body of Christ) know or don’t know where a person will spend eternity. GCM Watch looked at this earlier, but its time to revisit it again.
Currently, the argument(s) goes something like this:
Nobody knows whats in a person’s heart, therefore a person could repent at the moment before they die and get into heaven. Only God knows if a person will go to heaven or hell.
But is that true? Are we completely in the dark about a person’s final destination after they take their last breath? And if we can’t know about a person’s after death destination, then are we expected to know our own? If we dont know where a person will spend eternity, then why is heaven always the default? If we are so sure about heaven, why all the doubt about hell?
Your turn. Tackle this, or take it in another direction. Its Open Forum on GCM Watch. Standard commenting rules apply.
