The Amicable Life of a Hedonistic ChristianPilgrim
The commending of a certain truth
We fight thus insofar as to suppress and destroy the lusts of the flesh, neither that we might boast of our holiness nor gloat over our successes, nor for us to condemn or disrupt the grace-tasting buds in the tongue of the soul of another. Rather we commend ourselves in the sight of all men, that they may abound in joy through our sacrifices, and that they may be perhaps made glorious through their perseverance while having trusted and relying on the solid and deeply-rooted foundation on which they confidently place with the confidence that we imbue through exhortation and commending this truth.
There is a certain truth, namely, the highest exhilaration of man in God, glorifies God the most. This truth proclaimed, resounded, or reiterated over and over. It is neither absurd nor preposterous to seek to abide in the same resounding truth. It is neither a fallacious nor incoherent to abide in this truth.

Conspicuity of the Hedonistic Christian life
One may perhaps be staggered by the one simple fact that seems abstruse at the initial glance. This is the life of the Hedonistic Christian, who seeks to magnify Christ in His life through the obvious things of life. The Christian's life is blatant and yet subtle.

Whose plans are to reveal the glory of the chosen ones, that they may enjoy the unmitigated treasure. It is neither cumbersome nor a tiresome thing to remain away from being a contravener of the truth. To remain satisfied with the justice and grace that is being poured out every single second to keep the earth sustained. However, to the perpetrators of sin, they were part of the drama of this author, whose part is meant for the expounding joy of the saints. There is never a time to err because of the sin of another; to them it is a great privilege. In the biblical parlance, there
Faith is the substance of the unseen
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Based on this, humans do hope for many things, including perfect justice, perfect righteousness, sinless bodies, infallible results, etc, all summed up in perfection which is in Heaven.
Given the above, there is one thing to ponder about, and this is specifically talking about whether to believe on Jesus' salvation for Heaven. (This would include believing in Heaven itself, but no one gets there other than going through Jesus, which if anyone has contention on this, ponder about it, and believe what you so choose because on judgment day the one who will have to give an account for your decision is you.)
Now, why would someone believe in Jesus (whether seen or not seen)? This is very personal and many of them have great encounters of which Jesus was personally seen.
Now what personally works for me to know whether or not to believe in the so-called "unseen" Jesus, would be this : "For when Gent
