Eternity, Our Future

     I may  have said this before. We are eternal crearures. This is one of our likeness to God features. We were created that way.As eternal creatures we are going to live forever.
    The question is where?
     Erwin Lutzer, Moody Church, Chicago, expressed it this way: "One minute after you slip behind the parted curtain, you will either be enjoying a personal welcome from Christ, or catching your first glimse of gloom as you have never known it. Either way, your future will be irrevocably fixed and eternally unchangeable."
     Each one of us in immortal. All belief systems address this in one sense or another. Only Christianity tells you the truth. Or I should rather say,m the scriptures. This is where we should search for the answers. The scriptures. Not in drugs. Not in experiences. Not in sex.
    The answer is this. For those who have accepted God's way to heaven there will be a welcome from Christ. To all others there will be  gloom forever. An eternity away from the presence of God and no second chance.
     Let me repeat: No second chance to choose.
     God's way is the redemption offered at the cross.
     And what  do we get if we accept God's plan? The Holy Spirit living within us as our guide and teacher., And in the future when we pass trough that curtain, eternal peace with God in the presence of God.
