This episode is part of my podcast series DEAR ATHEIST… If you prefer, LISTEN NOW.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Heaven is far preferable than Hell. God has made the choice so very simple, that an idiot will not miss road!!! As the wise men of the world over-analyse every detail of these options, and speculate endlessly about whether or not God exists, the idiot has read all the signs along the way…he saw the narrow way with the sign of the Cross, saying “this is the Way. Walk in it”, and he is undisturbed to follow the trail that leads to Life!
This is how idiot-proof the choice is:
1. Heaven is a luxury, all expense paid eternal vacation free from logistical stress and packed with delightful leisure activities. Hell is a horrible, uncomfortable, uncivilized garbage dumpsite, which reeks of everything distasteful, that you spent a fortune to get to! Even if the thought of Heaven is not appealing enough, the fear of ending up in hell alone should motivate anyone to choose Heaven!
2. The King of Heaven came to Earth Himself and gave instructions on how to get your ticket and where to board the flight. It is so simple that unlearned men were able to write it down and share this knowledge to everyone! With a manual and a map, and the Spirit of God to enlighten our paths, it’s a sureset!
3. Even if it was a sordid trick so that you loose out on the here and now for a promised ever after, what have you really got to lose??? What do you have that you can’t already lose to the injustice, cruelty, wickedness and unpredictability of this life? It isn’t a fool’s gamble to trade this world for the glory of Heaven. It’s a fool’s gamble to ignore the eternal and take your chances on the now – only to spend an eternity in Hell.
So really, who is the fool? The one who believes God or the one who doesn’t?
“I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children” (Matt 11:25).
