What might be some questions of a new believer?
“Am I going to exist forever?”
“In a place so wonderful it’s beyond all imaginings?”
“And I’ll be me and have a name and a body and
be able to feel a wonder and love that never grows old
and have fun too and live in mansions?”
When we were growing up, our parents gave us advice from time to time
to help us get along better while living our lives.
Here’s a handy piece of advice that we all got:
If it sounds too good to be true . . . it’s probably not true.
If it sounds too good to be true . . . hold on to your wallet (or purse).
Here’s one I just thought of:
If it sounds too bad to be true . . . it’s probably not true.
(Because of the terrible happenings these days, use only
when referring to eternal torture.)
