Remember the days when no one questioned a dog’s salvation?
Those days are over.
You’re right Tim! Whoever took that photo probably didn’t think of that.
What disturbs me is folks who get their feathers ruffled at the mention that there might be animals in heaven. No one knows! If some pet-lover believes their pet will be waiting there in their room, why make fun of them or tell them their theology is wrong?
And who says we’ll even have rooms? Well, Jesus, but that was metaphorical…I think. Let’s just play nice down here while we’re down here (assuming Heaven is “up”, but I’m not sure).
When it comes to pets, I wouldn’t deride anyone their feelings on the subject!
I always point people to the very end of the book of Jonah. God seemed pretty concerned about the fate of those animals. 🙂
Jonah and the livestock, Noah with the ark full of animals, Jesus talking about sparrows. It’s a repeated theme, isn’t it April?
Absolutely! All of creation groans…God cared enough about the animals for them to be individually named, etc.
I’m just amused they have Nicolas Cage in this movie. It’s going to be wacky fun, I tell ya.
He came from heaven to earth in City of Angels, and now he wants to know why he didn’t get picked up in Left Behind? Come on, Nic, show a little consistency!
I think if animals are necessary for our joy in the next life, they’ll be there. I realize there’s a metaphorical side to phrases like the lion shall lie down with the lamb, or Jesus returning on a white horse, and so forth–but I figure God must love animals because look how many He created! And so many different types! Boggles the mind.
I remember seeing a cartoon that shows a monkey, a hippo, and a giraffe peering out of their cages in the zoo and obviously having a good laugh about something. The caption is, “Boy, the Creator sure had a sense of humor when He created all those oddball-looking humans!” 8-D
Absolutely. It’s a new creation we get to look forward to, not just new humans.
Does that mean cockroaches won’t be gross in heaven? Just wondering.
Cockroaches will be our friends. Cute and cuddly little friends.
They’ll have beautiful resurrected bodies.
In another view, cockroaches might not be there. Here their purpose is to break down what is dead…so if in heaven there isn’t any death, then they’d be superfluous.
What’s most disturbing about that pic is that the clothes get Left Behind too! Who knew the rapture meant we all got naked?
Perhaps they’re given big enough harps to hide behind?
I lost my dog after 15 1/2 years. I would love to say she is “waiting for me” but truly I just want her happy and feeling young again. So I can only hope she is having fun in Heaven and giving joy to others as she did me and one day we will see each other again. I will go to my grave feeling this way so please do not try and convince me in any other way. If “I’ can go to heaven, my DOG sure as heck can!
