Here is the last part, Wolverine Part I.
In the last post, I gave one reason why living forever in heaven could be a good thing.
In this post, I would like to give the other. The second reason is that the other possible outcome of death is that we could end up in the other place, hell.
So, whether we like it or not, when we die, we either have everlasting life or, essentially, everlasting death.
This is not meant to scare or tick-off people. If that was the case, I might as well say that we are given the gift of life. Life just is, we didn't create it. Well, life after death just is too. The difference is, we get a say about what happens after life in this fallen universe since we have free will.
That's why Jesus came to redeem all of humanity on the cross. That's why he rose from the dead. That's why He commissioned the Church to go and make disciples of all nations through baptism.
Thank you God, since we can't do it all on our own, that is, get to heaven. We just have to respond to His call to discipleship in His body, the Church.
