                               Animals in Heaven                       


Dear Brother Ron

If there is a heaven/hell for people, then there must be one for all animals too! I'm being serious. What makes humans any different? We are animals too, just a million times smarter. What do you think?

Dear Sisha

I think you are right. There are several Biblical references to the fact that animals have souls:

1Corinthians 15:43 The body is planted in a state of dishonor but is raised in a state of splendor. It is planted in weakness but is raised in power. 1Corinthians 15:44 It is planted a physical body but is raised a spiritual body. If there is a physical body, there is also a spiritual body.

Romans 8:19 For the creation is eagerly awaiting the revelation of God's children, Romans 8:20 because the creation has become subject to futility, though not by anything it did. The one who subjected it did so in the certainty Romans 8:21 that the creation itself would also be set free from corrupting bondage in order to share the glorious freedom of God's children.

I seriously doubt that God sends animals to hell, though. They are just doing what God made them to do. Come to think of it, so are we. Maybe that means God does not send people to hell either.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Best always
Brother Ron
