“Christianity asserts that every individual human being is going to live for ever, and this must be either true or false. Now there are a good many things which would not be worth bothering about if I were going to live only seventy years, but which I had better bother about very seriously if I am going to live for ever.”
“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them shout for joy forever. May you shelter them, and may those who love your name boast about you.”
Psalm 5:11, CSB

I agree. Very little emphasis is given to the promise of bodily resurrection or eternal life these days. It makes me wonder if we’ve stopped believing it simply because of our increasingly scientific mindset or because of the impact it would have on some of our very short term decision making. Why isn’t it really taught that much these days?
That is a truth we do not emphasize enough.
