“The Biblical view of things is resurrection – not a future that is just a consolation for the life we never had but a restoration of the life you always wanted.  This means that every horrible thing that ever happened will not only be undone and repaired but will in some way make the eventual glory and joy even greater…This is the ultimate defeat of evil and suffering.  It will not only be ended but so radically vanquished that what has happened will only servce to make our future life and joy infinitely greater.” (Timothy Keller)

“They say of some temporal suffering: ‘No future bliss can make up for it,’ not knowing that Heaven, once attainied, will work backwards and turn even that agony into a glory.” (CS Lewis)

“I believe like a child that suffering will be healed and made up for, that all the humiliating absurdity of human contradictions will vanish like a pitiful mirage, like the despicable fabrication of the impotent and infinitely small Euclidean mind of man, that in the world’s final, at the moment of eternal harmony, something so precious will come to pass that it will suffice for all heart, for the comforting of all resentments, for the atonement of all the crimes of humanity, of all the blood that they’ve shed; that it will not only be possible to forgive but to justify all that has happened.” (Doestoevsky)
