My beautiful daughter, Rachel, left this world way, way too early. She was, by any account, a wonderful person. Humble. charitable, loving. Family always came first, and her daughter, Leslie, was her heart. If anyone deserves to go to heaven, it would be Rachel.
But, she’s in hell. She’ll spend eternity burning in the Lake of Fire. All she will ever know, for centuries upon centuries without end, is tortuous, unbearable agony. This, according to Christians, is undisputed, undeniable fact. And it’s all because she did not believe in God.
She wasn’t a hostile enemy, she just never accepted Biblical logic. It didn’t make sense to her. And according to every person on the planet who knows with complete certainty that if Adolph Hitler accepted Jesus with his final breath, he’d be in heaven, enjoying paradise forever, my beautiful daughter’s fate is sealed.
I’m sorry, but that’s something I cannot reconcile. Rachel meant, and still means, everything to me. So if Christians are right and she really is in hell right now, I know I’ll see here again some day.
