It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse comes from the book of Revelation.
“Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” – Revelation 22:15
The book of Revelation describes the end of times and lays out what is needed to get to heaven. In this verse, those who practice magic, do the sex in the wrong way, and do other bad things, won’t make it to heaven. In addition, anyone who practices falsehood, or in other words lies, doesn’t make it to heaven. Um…everyone lies. Some lies are small, some are big. Some are even unintentional. Kids lie all the time. It’s part of growing up. So if no one who lies can make it to heaven, who actually goes to heaven? No one! Hell, even Jesus lied! He said he would return in the lifetime of those alive at the time and he didn’t! Jesus is a liar. Not even Jesus makes it to heaven according to this verse. That leaves two options. Either heaven doesn’t exist or it’s an empty place inhabited by no one. Hmmm.
