Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
So began the classic song “Imagine” by John Lennon. As a former Beatles fan, and more specifically, a John Lennon fan, I used to love that song. I remember a time before the Lord grabbed ahold of me that I actually said that I wanted that song at my funeral one day. It’s interesting how one’s perspective changes upon meeting Jesus. Today, that’s probably the last song I’d want at my memorial.
Over this past Christmas season, my son loaned me a rather controversial book. I won’t mention the name of the book here, but suffice it to say that the author, a prominent church leader, had some pretty bizarre views of heaven, and more specifically, of hell. I wondered if perhaps the author of that book was an “Imagine” fan too. At the very least, he seemed to have quite an imagination.
