I prefer thought translations. While the common man talks about ‘going to heaven’ the learned man knows we are bound for a New Earth.Do you think you’re going to go to heaven when you die? If so - and the average Christian does - then you’re not a Christian.
I don’t quibble over such things with the common man. Furthermore, I deny the claim it is a requirement for salvation.
I have heard - and rejected claims that if you do not do X, then you are not a real man or real Christian.
You’ve encouraged me to NOT read the author’s writings. This too, I appreciate. Thanks!
