Short Story : "Heaven"
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
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
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.
