Eternal Perspectives

To enter heaven as we are, and for heaven to remain heaven in the process, is a moral impossibility. Nothing that defiles can enter heaven (Revelation 21:27) and so the idea that death marks a natural and inevitable transition to the bliss of heaven, a bliss which awaits us all, is a deep and deadly mistake. Heaven is made possible only by the work of Christ and by personal union with him through faith.
