Heaven’s Door

Write 31 days, day 11

Today’s prompt: door

Can I be honest? I struggle with hell. I find myself asking how is it that God, who is not only capable of love, but is actually Love itself, could conscript people to hell? Especially those who have never heard. We find all sorts of ways to make sense of this: e.g., “well, God is completely holy.” That is absolutely true, but his holiness is not contrary to his love. None of us will fully understand the depths of his love or holiness this side of heaven. Part of me hopes that in the end, we will be greeted at the door by the Father, inviting us into wholeness, but only if we are willing to sacrifice our sinful ways, for darkness will not dwell with light.

For reflection: what doctrines do you wrestle with?
