Poor Imagination

John Lennon

I recently heard a recording of John Lennon singing his hit song Imagine in front of a live audience. When Lennon sang the first line, “Imagine there’s no heaven…” the audience burst into applause. It seems to me the notion that there is no heaven is a terrible thing to celebrate!

It is a sad worldview that leaves no room for an eternity in heaven with a loving heavenly Father. The hope of heaven gives many people the encouragement they need to persevere on earth. We Christians know that we are destined for better things than this temporal life with all of its troubles and sorrows. We have something wonderful to look forward to—eternal life in heaven!

“If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.”—1 Corinthians 15:19.
