Short Story : "Heaven"

Updated on December 12, 2011

I believe that a man can only be judged according to his own wisdom.

Not too long ago myself and one of my acquaintance, had a very spirited

discussion about whether or not babies will be going to Heaven 6 months old,

1 year old, he even told me don’t say innocent babies, because they are not.

I believe that that a man is as intelligent as he knows that he is.

But I am not trying to cling to the man who is known, as the world’s most renowned

Biblical scholar, neither will I cling to the world’s most renowned worshiper of evil.

I would read the Bible as I have done for years, and I would believe

What my truth tells me from my own ability to understand.

For at this stage in life, I trust my self and my abilities. I believe that most High God

In whom I believe would translate and guide my path as I go along.

Some one close to me once told me with assurance, and I noted it in another of my hubs,

Don’t remember the exact name at this time.

That is someone that I know very well.

She said to me in a rage that I am accustomed to, that:

“To err is human.”

As I said I know this person quite well, but I surely did not know. That this was the extent of

Their knowledge pertaining to their understanding of God and how his forgiveness

takes place.

I had no idea that her understanding had been this limited .

I actually believed that she knew better, but because of this particular problem with

“Anger” I discontinue all attempts

I think that she have selfishly, carved out a piece in the Bible, and another piece that came

From the mouth of man, and have conveniently made it into her own failsafe alibi,

well that is until now, with my totally different understanding.

This started up a situation between us, that I have vowed, to never again verbally try

To discuss the Bible and it’s teachings with her or anyone, that I know have these kinds

of attitudes.

I am a mature human being and I have the right to believe that I would be wise enough

To know when to roll them and also

When to fold them. What I am going to do is exactly what I am doing here. I will place

My feelings out to the open in writing, and since I live in a world of all different

Types of people, I truly believe that there are others like me, who simply have

Matured enough to know those senseless arguments, and any arguments for that matter,

Is exactly like I say: “Senseless!”

Now Heaven: I would try to place my understanding of what I believe after

I place a few verses of scripture so that anyone who reads, may also understand something

That they have possibly long ago, looked at differently. I will break it down after these verses.

In the book of Romans: 6:23 it says.

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

In the book of Revelations 21:8 it says.

But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral,

Sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur,

Which is the second death?”

My most profound is found in Hebrews 10.26-31. Which says?

"For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth,

There no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation

Of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.

Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony

Of two or three witnesses. Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose,

Will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot,

Counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing,

And insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know Him who said, 'Vengeance is mine,

I will repay,' says the Lord. And again, 'The Lord will judge His people.'

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."

Let it mean to you whatever it means to you to the extent to which you believe.

But for me it quite simple. To err is human, is to the humans that feel the need to ERR,

Harboring the belief that because God is a merciful God you have the right to abuse his mercies.

Even knowing that you are about to sin and go ahead with it is a slap in Gods face and you continue by saying:

God is Merciful.

Now you know!

Choose yee this day that yee would serve.

      From the moment you spoke of your Mom and Dad I knew you were a special person . I saw and read many of your works, I looked carefully at many of the things you did .

      Today my thoughts have turned around at me and said:

      Well done.

      That's a great thing.

      Thanks for reading and all your kind, lovely words.

      The same to you and yours in your wish s for the up coming year which actually starts Today! Yes V . They start every day.

      No man could avoid sin but we are given a choice to choose the right path and not to repeat the same mistake. It is us, human, who has been ignoring God's words. Ignorance to the existence of GOD ALMIGHTY, unintentionally makes us a sinner. We lost faith in HIM, our soul become restless and that makes us sway to the wrong directions. The next day, we wake up, REGRETS written all over our body.

      To do evil, it only takes seconds;

      To be a good man, it could take months, years or NEVER.

      So stay wise.God loves us all.

      Well, this is what I believe in, Sky.

      Your piece of work is simply AWESOME!. I really enjoyed reading it. Take care. Have a Prosperous New Year!

      Best Wishes, Verita

      Thank you heart4theword. So true what your comment says, and I can give you a reason for this. Most people , if you observe attentively , it's never their fault , even from childhood, it's always somebody else's fault.

      Until they learn that this is first about you and your understanding, even if it through somebody's ministry.

      Thanks so much for reading and such a lovely comment.

      I love this verse II Tim 2:15. So many times we as people rely on the churches and preachers to teach us. Without opening the word of God, we too often trust what people say. Rather than searching the scriptures for ourselves and allowing the Holy Spirit of God to work in our give us a knew understanding known to us:)

      Thank you "AE"!

      When you get it, you don't let it slip , and I love that spirit in you , it will undoubtedly work wonders for your mind now and in the coming years .

      I an quite proud.

      When the truth sits in front of you , there are two things one must never do. Play they have not seen it, you not aware, and willfully deny and hide behind selfishness or any other.

      Stay in the light dear "AE"

      I wrote all night tonight polishing up my future.

      Thanks as always my dear lady and sincere thanks.

      This is an important message Sky. We are all sinners, but to willfully sin when we know it is a sin, must be very grievous to the spirit. The thought of a baby not going to heaven is ludicrous. Thank you again...

      Blessings to you brethren . Thanks for reading it's a little long , but there is a great message , and if you got it as I believed you did . Bless.

      Thanks for your very encouraging comment,Frank. It,s with people like yourself that goes all out to keep positiveness alive , the ones who are not at all selfish and have nothing to prove , that make this sometimes ugly trek worth the while . Give thanks and praises to the Most High. Look for the one coming up now.
