In the "Am I Going To Heaven" thread under General Baptist Discussions, this separate thread got started by me, so I'll move the debate over to here. I was discussing A LIFE GOD REWARDS by Bruce Wilkinson and Erwin Lutzer's books on Heaven and its Rewards. You get eternal life by grace. You get eternal rewards by works. A martyr who sacrifices home, family, all for Christ, Jesus Himself said he'd be compensated in heaven for all that loss. A pew potato who refuses to deny self,witness, pray, study Bible, do anything for God--will also be compensated in heaven--with loss of rewards. This topic is declared in many ways throughout the Bible: Treasures in Heaven, gold & precious stones vs. wood/hay/stubble/straw, judged according to deeds done in the body, various differences in riches and responsibilities for Hebrews in Canaan, etc. Bible readers will know what specific verses I'm referring to. Any comments? Is this such a "strange" idea? Not to me it isn't. I've always, since I got saved, heard this taught, that heaven will not be equal. Why is this so odd to anyone?
