The Road to Hell is Paved with Everybody Else

David Hayward writes:

Of course, the word “Christian” can be replaced with pretty much any of the other labels from the left. And the word “heaven” can be replaced with “reward for being right”. It’s all the same. We are all within the large square. It’s called “life” or “the world”. And all those words we play with are sometimes convenient but frequently divisive labels that help us feel significant in the midst of chaos and fear.

Agreed on all counts. I would suggest an alternative punchline, though. Forget Heaven and Hell. Just have those two arrows point to the exact same place: Nowhere.
