Geoff at "New Cool Thang" has done it again. He’s pulled my chain and it’s time for me to express myself again.
Rather than agreeing or defending or discussing any or all of his 3 theories I want to talk about this earth life. This view works!
Life isn’t fair!! At least fair from our viewpoint. Some live a few minutes, some a few years and others for 70-100 years. Some in poverty, some in wealth, some in sickness and misery, others in health and confort.
What do we learn from this earthlife experience that is so important? I contend that millions and millions have learned absolutely nothing. Their earthlife was too short.
The one thing that makes earthlife fair, that makes it a real learning – growing experience is the Millenium. The Millenium gives us 1,000 years to live under Christ’s supervision – His government, and without the influences of Satan.
When I look at how much I have grown and progressed so far in becoming more Christlike, I think wow! I’ve got a long long way to go, but I am better than I was last year and that’s what progression is all about. So how much could I grow, how could I change if I was living under the conditions of the Millenium, and living for 1,000 years instead of 70 – 100?
It doesn’t matter which of Geoff’s 3 theories is "right". Give me 1,000 years with Christ and all the returning prophets, with no Satan, and I’ll be ready to be exalted….I won’t need progression between kingdoms, I won’t need another mortal probation….all I’ll need is Christ’s Atonement and the Millenium.
