“The Creator created the world as a diverse world. The Bible talks about when we go to the New Jerusalem it will be a place of people of all nations. So if you cannot practice being with people of all different nations and backgrounds here, how are you going to enjoy heaven? Heaven is going to be a place where you are going to be next to people of all nations.”Rebecca Deng
