I agree with you, Mike: ” I will go on to say that people shape their theology around the outcomes they want to have.” I got a call just today from a friend in California that believes this. He’s got heaven already mapped out based on his earthly theology. When I visited with him a couple of years ago, I went with him to his “mega church”. The preacher even had a line that went something like this: “Close your eyes. Imagine what heaven is going to be like. OK, now open your eyes. That’s exactly what it will be like for you.” We closed with the invitation “hymn” being flashed on an overhead screen while keeping time with a couple of electric guitars.
