I was thinking a little bit about hell today (maybe it helps to be prepared). About how I think hell is feeling all the hurt you caused (and didn’t repent of). I was thinking, what’s the point of that? Merely, justice? There doesn’t seem to be a lot of point to that. So, I decided that it was, if we are not going to learn to be good, thoughtful, kind, loving, and compassionate the easy way - can you believe that this life and all those Sunday School lessons and all this struggle is the EASY way???! but I think it probably is, heaven help us, and it will if we let it - if we refuse to learn the easy way, then we will get to learn the HARD way by feeling the all results of our unrighteous actions. One of the cool things about this perspective is that it indicates the opportunity for continued growth and progress, even in hell. But just because this offers hope even to the so-far unrepentant, we must remember, this is not a good thing to plan on because 1) it was just me thinking and 2) if it is the way thing are, it is going to be possible to progress, but even more painful and harder than it is here.
What do you think?
