The critical question for our generation — and for every generation — is this: If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties your ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?

– John Piper, God Is the Gospel

  1. Absolutely not. When I see him I will be made like him and I will forever be satisfied. If He is not there and I don’t seem him, then I am not made like him and therefore I am still capable of disatisfaction or not being fully satisfied in his presence. I want Christ when I go to heaven.

  2. I am with Gregg on this “Absolutely not” Because with me, even my family & best est of best friends on earth walking side by side with me couldn’t do for me what Christ has done and is still doing for me as I grow older and knowing Him and the close relationship we have, without Him there I would surely think I was in a Hell, He is my All in All !!! Thankful for His Wonderful Life Saving Grace !!
