The Way to Heaven, Harmony

Throughout the world are to be found those who profess Christianity, having adopted it from a desire to be freed from sin, and hoping that they will eventually gain for themselves a place in heaven. To many of these seekers for the truth heaven is what a well-known dictionary in part defines as "the dwelling place of the Deity; place or state of the blessed dead;" and they therefore believe it to be attainable only after the experience called death. With many the concept of heaven is shrouded in mystery, and because of this sense of mystery that concept is unacceptable to those who think for themselves, and who in the absence of tangible proofs have become what are known as unbelievers and agnostics.

It is generally believed by those who claim to be Christians that the answer to all human questions is to be found in the inspired Word of the Scriptures; but humanity's difficulty has been its inability to interpret the Scriptures correctly, and so to find the answer. That such interpretation and answer are possible is indicated in Revelation, where we read, "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."
