Occasionally, cartoonists get it right.
I’m sure the writer of the comic strip, Non-Sequitur, was trying to poke fun at religion in his comic this week. On the one hand, the strip portrays a cynical view that religion is cause of all the conflicts in the world. On the other hand, the writer inadvertently told the truth about heaven.
Religion will not get one into heaven. Only those who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ will enter heaven.
In John 14:6, Jesus stated, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” In Revelation 22:3-4, the apostle John described heaven as a place where, “The throne of God and the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They shall see his face and his name will be on their foreheads.”
Heaven is not a place for religion. Heaven is a place of deep relationship with Jesus, our redeemer.
