John Piper in his book, “God is the Gospel: Meditations on God’s Love as the Gift of Himself,” ask this clarifying question:

“If you could have heaven, with no sickness, and with all the friends you ever had on earth, and all the food you ever liked, and all the leisure activities you ever enjoyed, and all the natural beauties you ever saw, all the physical pleasures you ever tasted, and no human conflict or any natural disasters, could you be satisfied with heaven, if Christ was not there?”
What are the implications of a question like that?
