Discussion 1 to Meditation 334
Further Thoughts

by Rev. Philip van Bergen

Since writing this meditation, it has been pointed out to me by a deist friend that Jesus’ sacrifice covered all sins, past, present and future. Ergo it would appear that He presented us with a free get-out-of-jail card for all eternity.

The logical conclusion of same is that we can go ahead and sin with impunity, which makes a mockery of Judgement Day, as we merely have to present our free pass into heaven.

On the subject of said Judgement Day, I am somewhat confused as to the timeline for admission into heaven following death. On the one hand we are led to believe that St. Peter will admit us immediately (subject to certain checks), yet on the other we have the notion of a Judgement Day at some time in the very distant future. If the latter is the established dogma, then what happens to our souls in the intervening period? Are we condemned to sit in a celestial waiting room, or are we truly dead for the interim?
