A Cruel Trick

I’ve heard people say there are no stupid questions. I disagree. The number one stupid biblical question I’ve ever heard is will we recognize each other in Heaven.

What this question reveals is that the asker doesn’t know God. Do they think the Lord God Almighty is a joker or a prankster?

Everybody that is blessed to make it to Heaven will recognize their relatives and friends that are likewise blessed to make it to Heaven. It’s Heaven. It’s not a place for cruel tricks or undue punishment.

Trust the Lord. Read your Bible and get to know him better!

I Know What Love Is

Do you ever empathize with Forrest Gump? I do. He once said, I know what love is. This fictional movie character has a better understanding of love than many preachers.

Unconditional love is a lie and a worthless thing. If someone says God loves you unconditionally or I’ll love you no matter what you do, run the other direction.

John 3:16 is the first condition to God’s love and salvation. It is one of many. Love hopes for reciprocity. It demands respect. 

To quote another movie, Moulin Rouge, the greatest thing is to love and be loved in return. In the same way a person’s actions reflect their love for another, our actions can either alienate or endear God.

Jesus did say, If you love me, keep my commandments. John 14:15
