Words of Comfort: "Imagine there’s no Heaven"

During a radio debate I once had with an atheist, my opponent said that the Beatles were all atheists, and that John Lennon's song "Imagine" was “The Atheist's Anthem.” I explained that while Paul McCartney had said that they were atheists (back in 1964), as they matured in their thinking each one became very spiritual. I also explained that to believe that John’s song “Imagine” is an anthem for atheism, is also unthinking. If I said “Imagine there's no New York, it's easy if you try,” I’m saying that New York exists as a reality, but let’s imagine (pretend) that it doesn’t. John Lennon’s “Imagine” is about the reality of Heaven and the sinfulness of mankind, who is continually causing wars over religion. The good news is that the time will come when all that evil will be stopped, and the world will live as one. Make sure you are part of that coming kingdom, where God’s will, will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. I hope someday you’ll join us…
