Give Me A Minute – What If It’s True?

“What?”

“What if it’s true?”

“It’s not.”

“But what if it is?”

“Then there are gonna be a lot of very surprised people out there.”

“No, they won’t be surprised. They’ll be horrified. Terrified. Scared to death.”

“It’s just fantasy man.”

“Some of my friends think it’s true. They believe it. And they’re pretty smart.”

“Even smart people get duped. People believe anything you tell ‘em. Nobody takes time to think about what’s truth, fiction, fantasy… They’re too busy watching reality TV or trolling dating sites.”

They laughed.

“Do you think there’s a God?”

“A what?”

“God. You know. A higher power who created stuff. An ‘In the beginning’ guy?

“Nope. Everything’s too messed up. Nobody cares about stuff. Don’t tell me you think there is.”

“When I was a little kid in Sunday School I thought there was. I’m not sure now. But what if it’s true?”

“You mean, what if God has a son called Jesus and he comes back to earth and takes a bunch of people to heaven?”

“Yeah.”

“There aren’t enough good people that we’d even notice they were gone. How many people do you know who he’d take? I don’t know any.”

“Well, look at who you hang out with. For sure none of them would make it.”

“I hang out with you.”

More laughter…

“If it happens, we’re not gonna be part of the group. I think about that sometimes.”

“Well quit thinking about it. You get weird when you do.”

“It just seems there has to be more…to life. Ya know? Live a while, have fun, and then it’s over. Lights out.”

“Exactly. That’s why we party now. Once it’s over…it’s done for good. Might as well enjoy it while we can.”

“But if he comes, and we aren’t taken, that means the whole story could be true.”

“What story? What are you talkin’ about?”

“You know. Heaven, hell, the devil. A rapture. Life after we die.”

“If the story is true, we’re screwed. We’re going to hell. And so are all our friends. Start the party.”

“Hmmm. I don’t think there’s gonna be a party there.”

“Right. That’s why I don’t think about it. And that’s why we party now. So shut up and let’s go.”

“Okay. You’re right. It’s just a fantasy… I hope.”

Are God and His Son Jesus a myth? A fantasy, invented by people? And is He going to send His Son back to earth to take those who worship and trust Him to Heaven?

As I mentioned in an earlier article, https://jefflossau.com/2017/08/12/give-me-a-minute-is-the-end-near/, I don’t put a lot of faith in “end times” predictions but I do believe God exists and will one day send His Son back for those who love Him.

The letter linked to below is worth a quick read. Let me know what you think.
