"I am not of this world" - The Issue for 2000 Years

Fukushima City, Japan

The Issue for 2000 Years

The issue is simple: Whether there is the after life or not.

Christ Jesus preached on the assumption or with confidence that there is an after life for every one.  Or He preached based on the notion that there are Heaven and the hell.

However, as everybody knows, one dies and his/her body is disintegrated after his/her death.  Then how can the one live an after life or go into Heaven or the hell?  And, as everybody knows, the answer is that the soul of a man leaves his body when he dies, entering the spiritual world.

(However, there are some descriptions in the Bible that the dead come to be revived with their flesh.)

So, to believe in Christ Jesus means to believe existence of the afterlife, Heaven, and the hell.  And, to believe in Christ Jesus is to believe that souls of bad men go to the hell after their death and souls of good men enter Heaven after their death.

But why cannot human beings see the spiritual world, Heaven, and the hell, while they are alive in this world?  If people could see clearly how terrible and horrible the hell is, most of them would avoid evil while they are alive.  But nobody can see Heaven and the hell while they are living in this world.

This is the most important issue for the mankind.  Only one can do is to believe the words of Christ Jesus, live honestly and avoid evil, and hope that he or she will be accepted into Heaven.  This is the rule God set for the mankind.  But why did God set it as such?  Why must this world and the other world be separated from each other?

For 2000 years after Christ Jesus came to this world, the mankind or the Vatican has been thinking about it.  But it cannot present a reasonable answer to the world.  It is time for us to concentrate on this issue.
