Barbara Walters investigates Heaven
Sadly I didn't get to see all of the Barbara Walters special last night but it has been the topic of discussion at work today. I saw the end and it was what I expected it to be.
To paraphrase Jesus it was the "blind leading the blind" and if you follow where she led "shall they not both fall into the ditch?".(Luke 6:39)
Her special was titled "Heaven, Where Is It? How Do We Get There?" . She was to interview scientists and religious leaders, exploring multiple perspectives on the afterlife, including Catholic, Jewish, Baptist, Evangelical, Atheist, Muslim and Terrorist views. One reporter commented, "Sadly, Walters wasn't able to score an interview with God himself."
God, the only one who knows how to get to Heaven, doesn't need interviewed, just ask Him. He will point you to His Son Jesus. He tries to contact us throughout our whole lives, He wants everyone to come. He uses creation, people, and the most reliable source His Word (The Bible). No need to interview Him just read His word, "seek and you shall find" is His promise. Matthew 7:7
I heard that one Preacher told her right but that it seemed to fall on deaf ears because no one wants to be told they aren't good enough. No one wants to think that their sin keeps them from Heaven. But true love tells the truth. We are sinners in need of a Savior and the only Savior is Jesus.
This is one of the best sites to convict you of your sin and show you the way. Link
