We humans sometimes wonder about life. This wondering leads to in-depth discussions concerning what matters most. This leading thought can lead all over the known world, inner and outer space and often includes riveting questions about heaven and hell.
Newspaper articles often attempt at defining life’s essential things and ideas. Here’s one from a Northern daily:
"According to the ads, fresh breath and dry armpits are crucial."
(a line from the comic strip, Calvin and Hobbes, 5 April 1995, Mpls Star). Dan Talafous.
A few years ago the Mrs and I were mistakenly invited to a dinner involving attempts to raise funds for Mrs. Clinton. The seating arrangements placed me alongside a person who had never contemplated life in the manner described by Messer’s Calvin and Hobbs. The smell was “deplorable” and therefore totally out of place for such a meeting. For the duration, I found myself in agreement with Calvin & Hobbs.
The odor was distracting to the point that I had trouble following the excellent speech by the lady aspiring to be #1 in our fair land. She spoke glowingly concerning the need for transparency in government and especially in the financial affairs thereof. She kept the affairs bit in line with government and the need for the restoration of respect for elected leaders. The woman seated beside me kept muttering, “Of all the gall!” I wisely never questioned her about the galling bit.
Worry, arguing, fist fighting concerning the difference between our two national political parties can, on occasion get down and dirty. The Democrats & Deplorables do NOT like each other. I must mention the growing numbers in the RINO party as they are becoming a force, but it’s too early to decide whether they are Democrats or Deplorables. I suppose if I sat beside one, I could make a better decision.
World Hunger, War, Nuclear Annihilation pale in significance to the question of heaven and hell. The decision concerning which of these you will live in eternity is settled here and now by faith in Jesus Christ or the lack thereof. Jesus put it this way:
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (NKJV).
