A friend was asked, “if there were no heaven or hell, would you still follow Jesus?” I thought it was an awesome question which has a lot of facets to it. So let me ask you Jesus followers. If there wasn’t a heaven or a hell, would you still follow Jesus?
As a follower of Jesus, I’d like to think I would but really, I don’t know. And that kind of scares me to admit. However, I do like a good philosophical discourse. That one question raised about 10,000 more in my mind. My over-ANALytical mind. Like, without heaven and hell, where would Jesus live? Could we go hear him speak? What about the devil? Would all spiritual warfare be visible? Is it enough to live the fabulous life that Jesus promises right here and now without an eternal future to look forward to? After all there are some trials that people only get through mentally because they are able to look ahead to eternity.
I’d LOVE to know your questions and philosophizing about this. Please leave a comment or two for the rest of us to ponder.
