All PowerC.S.Lewis once said, "You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body." As all Christians believe, I believe every human being's soul is eternal. No matter what state your body is in, each human soul is priceless beyond measurement and cannot ever die. It can, however, darken to the point of no return. Hell isn't a place where God sends bad people. Hell is simply the absence of God: He who is Love, Joy, Peace, Forgiveness, Righteous Passion, and all things good. Hell is the rejection of God....So what must heaven be?...I thank God for allowing me to have my illness. If He hadn't, how could I have truly understood the difference between the body and soul? How could I have understood the importance of reaching for Him and allowing Him to purify my eternal soul before reaching for worldy pleasure? How could I ever feel or understand true joy, if I had never suffered?
