What do love and the afterlife
have in common?
Most people believe they “go somewhere better” when they die. And I hope they do. But if you’re like most people, do you also believe you go somewhere better because you’ve been a good person? If so, why? Is it because you know what love and the afterlife have in common? Or because you you’re just so nice?
Love and the afterlife come from one place.
And that place ain’t your heart. I have no doubt you’re a great person. You love babies, puppies, and those less fortunate than you.
But all your good deeds mean nothing, and amount to nothing, if you don’t truly understand the source and power of love. Yes, it has a source. And loves flows from the infinite source of power. I’m sure, by now, you’ve figured out I’m talking about God.
Now, before you huff and puff and toss your head back, let’s say, for the sake of argument (and your soul), that I’m right.
What’s it gonna hurt to admit defeat? You can’t win in a battle against God. After all, He’s God. He made everything. You and I made nothing. The best we can do is take what He made and shape it into things. And because He loves us so much, He gave us a lot of stuff to work with.
His love is why there’s an afterlife.
But now, let’s say I’m wrong. There’s no God. And if there’s no God, what makes you so sure there’s “somewhere better” we all can go when we die? How can you put your faith in that idea? Because if there’s no secure, righteous God, how can anything be certain? Or good…let alone better? Think about that today.
If you believe an afterlife,
Where someplace better is
Waiting for us all some day,
Then you might fail the quiz.
A test of faith and evidence
With questions for your soul.
I urge you to look into it.
False ideas take their toll.
