Who goes where? (And who decides?)
We’ve been talking about heaven and hell. In short, heaven is incredible and hell is horrible. We should all want to go to one and not the other.
But who goes where? In other words, what makes someone right with God and given a place in heaven, and what makes someone wrong with God and therefore banished from his presence after they die?
And who decides these things?
Wow, those are huuuuge questions!
So on January 27th we explored the biblical teachings. In this sermon our pastor addresses questions like, ‘Do all good people go to heaven?’ ‘Is hell just reserved for the ‘ultra wicked’?’ ‘What makes you acceptable to God?’ ‘Is heaven something you have to earn?’ ‘How does Jesus fit into all this?’ ‘How do we talk about this with people who don’t believe?’
These are some of the most important questions you will ever explore. Let’s journey together and do our best to live wisely—not based on what we want to be true, but on what actually is.
