Some say that Jesus talked about hell more than heaven and so we should do the same. Rubbish! Jesus didn’t talk about hell more than heaven. He really didn’t talk about either too much.

Book of Life

Revelation 3:5 says that those who overcome will not be blotted out of the book of life. So if we do not overcome, we will get blotted out? No! Revelation 3:5 is using a figure of speech called litotes where a positive truth is stated in a negative way for emphasis.
