Several ideas converged in my mind and led to the conclusion that Christ-rejecters, confirmed sinners who mock and avoid God, send themselves to hell, and would not enjoy Heaven anyway. They want to be where they can lie, hate, hurt, kill, steal, rape, intoxicate, fornicate, feel superior, be hypocritical, super-critical, angry, jealous, melancholy, doubtful, etc. whatever they like best. They crave these things maniacally. So they'd hate Heaven with its peace, gentleness, love, joy, purity, truth, integrity, etc. See BEYOND THE COSMOS by Hugh Ross, (NavPress)page 210: "An individual who knowingly refused to worship God during this earthly life will never change his or her mind. Heaven's price, worshiping God and God alone, this person would never willingly pay [I don't agree with "pay" but read on...]. This person does not want to be in God's presence, and, thus, would find heaven repugnant...They may regret their eternal plight, but not their rebellion." Then recall Bruce Wilkinson (Life God Rewards) and Erwin Lutzer's (Tears In Heaven) separate but similar ideas that heaven will not be a Communism Equality Paradise, but different for each person according to their rewards achieved here on earth. some will get in but not have much responsibility or jurisdiction, some will bitterly regret not doing more for the Lord while on earth. Any response? I'm quite amazed at these concepts & consider them solidly Biblical.
