Here is a look at some memorable Colson quotes on Heaven:

1. Writing in his book, "How Shall We Live?" Chuck Colson said of heaven, "In every action we take, we are doing one of two things: we are either helping to create a hell on earth or helping to bring down a foretaste of heaven."

2. "Heaven is an eschatological hope that will be fulfilled only by divine intervention at the end of human history."

3. Once again in "How Shall We Live?," Colson wrote on how heaven cannot be created on Earth. "We know that sin is real, that it has deeply twisted human nature, and that none of our efforts can create heaven on Earth."

4. "The Bible's historical accuracy is a reminder that while "the heavens declare the glory of God," there's also plenty of evidence among the rubble and ruins."

5. "Life on Earth, as we know, has been marred by sin, but it is not the end of the story. And while most Christians acknowledge heaven, they have only a perfunctory or vague understanding of it."

6. "When many think of heaven, they have visions of ethereal spirits dancing in their heads-spirits existing without anything to do but float in heaven. But the reality will be much different."

7. On the Breakpoint website, Colson reminded readers of what the Bible says on finding heaven on Earth. "The Bible says: that we're not going to find heaven on Earth. Nor are we going to find a shortcut to salvation that allows us to hang onto our favorite sins."
