When God said, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor,” did He also mean, “You shall not exaggerate about anything your neighbor has said or done”? Do we need to be on our guard when it comes to exaggeration?
In Part I of our series, we established that the Bible teaches the earth not only abides forever, but it will be housing humanity throughout that eternity. We also established that the pathway to heaven is available by invitation only. Walking that path requires life-long faith, sacrifice and obedience. This raises questions about the afterlife. What about hell? What are all those unsaved people doing on earth? What about Judgment Day?
A destiny of heaven or hell sounds simple, but since the vast majority of humanity never heard of Jesus, is God's plan a miserable failure?
What changed and will change in heaven as a result of Jesus’ death and resurrection? What changed and will change on earth?
Even though it is not possible for us to get our arms around the depth of Jesus’ compassion, wisdom, love and clarity of mind, we are going to try anyway. What we find is pure spiritual inspiration.
