A christian is person who is able to enjoy life as it comes. Can you do that? CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE A PLACE IN HEAVEN. In addition wtih all you have already enoyed in earth,
Isn't that the opposite of what the Bible teaches? The real treasure is after this life... all suffering in this life will be rewarded... deny yourself in this life to be rewarded in the afterlife... no suffering in heaven.
There is the good advice, shared with many religions or ideologies, in that you should not focus on what do do not have, but on what you have.
That's just bullshit. If your not capable of handling this life, much less you'll able to handle eternity.
You don't have to be an ascet in order to enjoy a freaking morning with your loved ones. Because that's exactly what Jesus did before getting nailed like a pig in a log.
You are not supposed to be a looser, you''re supposed to give your life totatly knowing what you're giving. In order to understand what you're giving you first need to appreciate it.
