I went to a ceremony tonight…it was a Buddhist ceremony…with lots and lots of incense the room was filled with soo much smoke…oh man our eyes were hurting. It was interesting to experience it though. When someone has died, do you think it makes any difference what happens to them in the way we do things here. Well during the ceremony it seemed like they were trying to “please” the buddha by praying and bowing to him and offering gifts, so that the deceased would go to heaven. I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t make sense to me. Where you go surely depends on the person. There is nothing we can do that will affect it. It’s like begging God so they can go to heaven.
The only way we can go to heaven is clear: “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish BUT have everlasting life” – John 3:16
In other words we need to accept and believe that Jesus died for our sins so that we can be made clean again. In heaven there can be no sin. There is no way we or anyone can clean us of our sins, but God gave us a second chance through His son Jesus Christ. I pray that people would make the right decision before it’s too late.
