One reason for this difficulty is that we most of the next. The Apostles have not been trained: our whole education themselves, who set on foot the tends to fix our minds on this world. Another conversion of the Roman Empire, reason is that when the real want for Heaven the great men who built up the is present in us, we do not recognize it.

Rather than ignore our imagination, I believe we should fuel it with Scripture, allowing it to step through the doors that Scripture opens. I did not come to the Bible with the same view of Heaven that I came away with. On the contrary, as a young Christian, and even as a young pastor, I viewed Heaven in the same stereotypical ways I now reject. It was only through years of scriptural study, meditation, and research on the subject that I came to the view of Heaven I now embrace. Nearly every notion of Heaven I present in this book was stimulated and reinforced by biblical texts.

For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
