After reading a blog about "the lake of fire" I feel compelled to write my version.
"If your son or daughter asks for some bread, do you give them a stone? If you do good things, doesn't God do even better things." "Don't even the dogs lick up the crumbles that the children drop to the floor?" God is good, God is better than good. God is the best, beyond our imagination.
Do you really think that after all the years that Mother Theresa helped the children, the poor and the hungry in India that God would send them to the "lake of fire" just because they grew up not knowing Jesus? There are millions in the world who believe that the understanding of God came through Moses, or Muhammed, or Buddha, or the Great Spirit. What makes Christians more correct then them? What if they are correct? I believe God loves us all more than we can imagine and will do everything God can to keep us from pain and suffering, and God is all powerful. God hates evil but not people.
Since we're on the topic which we don't understand let me throw in a simple thought about heaven. How do I envision heaven? It's hardly a place and there are no bodies that need food and doctors. As God is "I am," we are "we are." Heaven will be spiritual interactions among all of us, after all without our bodies we are but spirits and we don't know the parameters of spirits, they just "are."
Now off to do the work of today's callings.
