Itís more than wishful thinking.
By William G. Johnsson
Modern humanity increasingly feels like a piece of driftwood afloat in a vast, fathomless ocean. Behind men and women lies an eternity of nothingness out of which, wholly by chance, they emerged eons ago. Ahead stretches an eternity of nothingness into which they will pass after a little span of life. An afterlife? No hope of it. They will live on only through their children, grandchildren, and descendants.
I believe in a life to come. I believe that my story will not come to an end when I draw my last breath. I believe that this life is but the beginning. The best is yet to be.
My belief is far more than just a wish or a hope. It rests on five foundations.http://www.adventistworld.org/issue.php?issue=2011-1007&page=16
