The Rev Klaas Hendrikse can offer his congregation little hope of life after death, and he’s not the sort of man to sugar the pill.
Comment by Adamantine:
I am not sure that looking at others lack of faith increases our own or confers greater credit to us.
I do think it is helpful to realize that
not all who say Lord Lord did we not help the poor in your name will make it into the Kingdom of Heaven.
I do appreciate these people letting one know up front that they are not believers however.
One becomes less likely to be robbed by such people as one recognizes they will have no compulsion to honesty if the survival is at stake.
I would guess a nation of such people is a bit less likely to win a war as they realize they have no eternal life to attend to.
