It seems like when we "know a little", we convince ourselves we "know everything" thereby REDUCING GOD to the merit of our "works". Do we really believe cosmology reveals Heaven in its entirety based upon visibility of of the sun, moon, and five planets in ancient times. Do we believe Dante's Divine Comedy provides revelation and explanation of GOD'S WORD? Do we believe that we live in different levels of Heaven based upon our "works" here on earth? Matthew 16:27, "...HE will reward each person according to what he has done." The only decision we have is, "to accept CHRIST" or to "reject CHRIST"; from that alone do we live in the Presence of GOD or away from the Presence of GOD, "...according to what he has done..." Perhaps a clear revelation about Heaven comes from Matthew 20:9, "...those who came to work in the eleventh hour were paid the same as those who worked all day..." Do we work for a better place in Heaven or do we do what we do because of the love we have for JESUS? Does someone who has know CHRIST all of their lives receive a better place in Heaven than the one who accepts CHRIST on their death bed? THE LITTLE WE KNOW, MAKES GOD EVEN GREATER.
