Writer's Block: Back from the dead

If you could experience being dead for one day to learn what happens in the afterlife, and were guaranteed to return to life the following day, would you do it? Why or why not?
No. I have no need to. I know that I will go to heaven. I will go to be with my Lord and Savior. To live is Christ, to die is gain. 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. 25God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— Romans 3:23-25 1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Romans 5:1. 16know that a man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by observing the law, because by observing the law no one will be justified. Galatians 2:16. I know what the afterlife has in store for me, and for you. Death is too late to wait to square anything away with God or discover what is true or not. We are born sinners and therefore cannot enter into the presence of God. That is why Christ died on the cross for us. He died for our sins so that if we trust in Him and His work upon the cross we will be justified, able to have peace with God and enter His presence. How do you know if you're a sinner? Look at the 10 commandments and see how well you've managed to keep them. If you are guilty of even one, you are guilty of them all. Why? Because sin is in our hearts. Sin is not our actions. Our actions are born out of our sinful hearts. The Creator of the universe, the Creator of you and I, took on human flesh to be perfectly obedient in satisfying God's law and God's wrath by being humbled on the cross, nailed to the tree of judgment paying for our sins so we could have peace with God. Read the gospels, read the book of Romans. www.biblegateway.com, www.blueletterbible.org
