Heaven and hell (1)

  1. 1. Heaven and Hell By Andie Daniell September 23, 2012
  2. 2. Heaven and Hell “To enter heaven is to become more human than you ever succeeded in being on earth; to enter hell, is to be banished from humanity.” (C.S. Lewis The Problem of Pain)
  3. 3. Heaven In my essay I talked about how heaven was prepared for man and how hell is banishment from humanity. Since heaven is made for man, a person does not reach full humanity until they enter into it. God made us to worship and obey Him. So technically, we are not fully human until we enter into the kingdom of God through Christ.
  4. 4. Hell Hell was never made for man. It was created for the devil and his followers. To be cast into hell is to be banished from humanity. A man who has a heart after God is complete. However, a man who has made himself a god is far off from human. When a person chooses his own desires instead of God, he is an ex-human. So when someone is in hell, they become the remains of a human because to be a human is to be passionately obedient to God.
  5. 5. About the Picture This picture represents the remains of a soul in hell. When we choose ourselves over Christ we might think it is human nature but the reality is that we were made to glorify God. Sin was never meant to be a part of us. Since there is sin it makes sense that heaven is where we achieve ultimate humanity and hell is where it is destroyed.
