I have a question.
It might be Rob Bell’s question too but I don’t know because his book isn’t out until the end of March.
Actually I have lots of questions but I’ll try to keep to this one:
How does grace work with heaven and hell?
Let me explain my problem.
God loves us. It doesn’t matter what we have done, God loves us. Or have I missed something? And does that make me a universalist? And is that a bad thing?
Does God only love us if we say sorry or we acknowledge His existence? Or does God love everyone?
You see I read the story of the prodigal son and I see that the father loved his son, even before he had a chance to say sorry. He loved him every day he was gone and what the boy had done didn’t make that love any less.
But then I read that God loved the world so much he sent his son and that I need to believe in him to have eternal life.
And those things seem to be at odds with each other.
Or are they?
Is there a limit to God’s grace or not? I hope not for mostly selfish reasons.
I have questions about the nature of ‘heaven’ and ‘hell’ too but I’ll keep those for another day…
