Say you make it into heaven, you walk up to the pearly gates and as you get closer they start to open with angel harps and all playing in the
background, you then step into heavenly bliss.
But uh oh, there aren't many people here because only a very few will make it, right? And you notice that uncle Jeff isn't here, neither is your
best friend or a few other very close friends and relatives who passed on before you. Say you have children and after waiting for what seems like
eternity they never show up, you come to find out that all these people that are missing from your life in heaven were either faking their faith or
somehow didn't meet the standards of God in order to make the cut.
You then realize that at that very moment they are in hell suffering for eternity, in the most agonizing pain imaginable for the rest of their
existence (forever apparently) and somehow you are still in "heavenly bliss" despite knowing these things. How does this work? How can someone be
happy and in bliss for eternity knowing that just on the other side of those gates you walked through your family and friends who didn't make the cut
Just a thought I had and wanted to share it with some. Can anyone explain this supposed contradiction to me? If hell is not suffering but
non-existence then how does that make it any better? People hurt from someone's death because they know they will not see them again in this
lifetime, what about the knowledge you will literally never see them again? That would be almost too much to take I would think, but apparently
everything in heaven is perfect and all of its inhabitants are in bliss.
Take that how you will, it is just an interesting thought I had.
