Not a thought of temptation.
The eye has been plucked.
We say we're not meant to be sinless.
And never have to confess again,
or else you will keep sinning.
I want to sin no more.
Is heaven empty,
but for Jesus and God?
Is it O.K?
If I only sin a little
till the end?
because if you believe in hell,
and no sin is greater then another,
then you must repent,
and become clean,
'cause if you don't change for Good,
then to the eternal fire for you!
Is it true?
Is there a Hell everlasting?
Is there only Jesus and God in Heaven?
I hope to sin no more,
as a young man,
and not old and dying.
(Note: This author can not say whether there is or is not a hell. If there is, my heart hurts thinking about an empty heaven, because heaven requires perfection, as Jesus asks, and I can not recall anyone that fits said requirements, or else we wouldn't need a second coming. On the other hand, you could also believe in early christian reincarnation. That may or may not be a joke.)
Yes glenn, God's mercy is truly infinite. I do not believe that such a thing would create anything, only to cast it away. Such a statement would sell God short, and say It's not perfect, and that is not the case. Sounds more like humanities way of "giving the bad guy what he deserves", without ever looking at themselves and seeing that they do as much wrong as the next person. I believe on death, we are shown our wrongs, and the impact they had, and its through that infinite feeling, that insufferable moment, that we know "hell", and that it consists of something called guilt, which is the worst pain the soul could ever suffer (worse then what we can suffer here, so bad that it would make you cry more tears then the ocean, no matter how much you wanted to look away). But to me, this moment is a catapult, the first step to redemption. No hell, just propellers. I don't know, I don't want to offend anyone. I'll stop
I understand your questions. They are the same ones I once had, and I found them all answered by the gospel of Christ. In the conclusion of his famous sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," Jonathan Edwards said "And now you have an extraordinary opportunity, a day wherein Christ has thrown the door of mercy wide open, and stands in calling and crying with a loud voice to poor sinners; a day wherein many are flocking to him, and pressing into the kingdom of God." It is that mercy that saves us, not our own attempts at perfection. It is that grace, that faith in Christ, that saves us. Yes, we are to "think again" about our sins and repent anew every day. When we do, we will find that God's mercies are renewed every day. (Lamentations 3:21-23) God will not be alone in heaven, because His invitation is open to all who hope and accept His mercy.
