Heaven Is Hell?

  

This author puts his finger on a major reason why the idea of heaven fails to arrest people’s attention. Thanks, Xavier, for sending this over.

“But to those who search in faith for the ending of the Story, our Enemy has whispered an even more diabolical lie, harder to dispel because it is veiled in religious imagery: ‘Heaven will be a never-ending church service in the sky.’ All those silly images of clouds and harps. I’ve heard innumerable times that ‘we shall worship God forever.’ That ‘we shall sing one glorious hymn after another, forever and ever, amen.’ It sounds like hell to me.

The coming of the Kingdom of God restores the world He made…Every miracle Jesus ever did was pointing to this Restoration, the day he makes all things new…The world in all its beauty shall be ours again-forever…The resurrection of Jesus was the first of many, the forerunner of our own. He paved the way, as the saying goes…So we, too, shall live and never die. Creation will be restored and we will be restored.” (John Eldredge, Epic: The Story God Is Telling).
