“Make the most of life on earth, because it will probably be the only one you get”.

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.

  1. Mr Hendrikse describes the Bible’s account of Jesus’s life as a mythological story about a man who may never have existed, even if it is a valuable source of wisdom about how to lead a good life.

    His book Believing in a Non-Existent God led to calls from more traditionalist Christians for him to be removed. However, a special church meeting decided his views were too widely shared among church thinkers for him to be singled out.

    A study by the Free University of Amsterdam found that one-in-six clergy in the PKN and six other smaller denominations was either agnostic or atheist.

    That whole article is so disgusting, so why do those people keep him in the clergy?

    well I do not believe in a separation of the clergy so called and the layman so called ever existed in the church to begin with

    we live in strange, strange times in the so called church

  2. Looking at others lack of faith makes me feel sick knowing where they will more than likely end up. My faith is strong regardless of what others do, Besides what they do is between them and God at the end of the day.

    “Make the most of life on earth, because it will probably be the only one you get”.

    This life is only the entree, the 1000 years is the main course and Heaven after judgement day is like the Sweet Desert to finish of a nice meal.
    Metaphorically of course 🙂
