My Musings – Seems like a simple question with an obvious and expected answer (rhetorical). And yet, so many chase after the “shiny” things that life affords in the here and now, that will not last and cannot be taken out of this life, yet neglect the more important matter of where they will spend eternity. This is illogical (senseless or unreasonable) at best, and foolish (absurd or ridiculous) at worst.
If one at least acknowledges even the slightest possibility of an afterlife with rewards (heaven) and punishment (hell), then it would be illogical to ignore or neglect carefully considering the possibilities. Because even with a slight possibility the stakes are still way to high (your eternal soul).
If one believes in such an afterlife, it would be foolish to ignore, neglect or postpone putting one’s affairs in order. Because there is no guarantee that an opportunity, ignored, neglected or postponed will ever present itself again.
My Advice – If you are a sceptic, it costs nothing to at least consider the possibility. But it could be very costly indeed to not consider it (forfeit of soul). Consider it. If you are an “intellectual” believer you’re still 18 inches away (the distance between the head and the heart) from not forfeiting your soul. Missing it by even a fraction of an inch is still a miss. Don’t miss it.
