Comfortable going to heaven?

Recommended Posts

Here is a question I want you to think about and answer for me:

Would you feel comfortable living in heaven knowing billions if no trillions of people will be burning in hell?

Mixed feelings to be the surviving few, If I do manage to live through the judgement day.

It's hypothetical what would make us comfortable or uncomfortable in the Kingdom of God.

But I think I'd be comfortable with it.

The Bible makes it pretty clear. 

You don't accept Jesus after being presented  with the gospel. You go to hell.  Actions have consequences. 

Those who haven't heard... I'm not sure about them...

but comfortable? Yeah, You accept Jesus and live for him, you get heaven. You don't? You don't. It's not rocket science, nor am I gonna guilt trip myself over it. But if you're feeling guilty over all of those lost souls, I hope you're doing what you can to be a witness and point people towards Christ.  This is the behavior I'm striving for.

I work in a public school. I can't exactly wallop some students over the head and holler THE POWER OF CHRIST COMPELS YOU (I'll admit, a few need it.) or whip out my Bible like some kind of street preacher and yell from a soapbox. 

 I do work with social outcasts though. Deaf and hard of hearing kids typically are behind socially in the mainstream setting.

What I CAN do is pray about to proceed in sticky situations, how I can encourage these kiddos in ways they may not get at home or other ways I can support them These schools are a pretty dark place. If I can be some sort of light, reflecting Jesus to those who'd otherwise never see him, my mission is accomplished. 

Outside of school if someone asks, I'll witness to them, sure. Trying to get bolder, not there yet. Hence my comment about trying to emulate Christlike behavior.

I still see the entire "guilt" argument from the perspective of giving someone advice. If they don't follow it, why should I feel guilty? Bad for their poor decision making skills,? Yes. Guilty? Nah.  I know the repercussions of not choosing Jesus are a million times more severe but, same concept. 

And yes, I love my neighbor as myself. :P
