Do You Believe Jesus Is Coming Back Soon?
And the third fallacy is that only Christians go to heaven. I am reminded of the story of the farmer with two sons. You will find it in Matthew 21:28-31. The farmer sent for his sons to help him in the fields. The first son said he would go but didn't. The second son said he would not go but changed his mind and went to help his father. Those who heard this parable agreed that the son who did what was required was the better of the two.
It's the same with
us. There are many who sing praises on Sunday, then practice all sorts of
evil the rest of the week. There are also many Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and
even some atheists who lead righteous lives and work for the good of others.
I believe our Father pays attention to what we do, not what we say
So I guess the answer to your question is yes and no. Yes, I believe when this life is over, my Father will come to take me home. No, He won't come for everybody on the same day. But that's a good thing. Patience has never been one of my big virtues.
