Did God Make Heaven and Hell Humanity’s Destiny (Part II)

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?

Should You Ever Befriend Dishonesty?

Sometimes you read a scripture and it makes you do a double-take, because it simply does not make sense. It then ought to become our responsibility to figure it out – to try and understand what the real message is. Such is the case with our theme text from Jesus’ parable of the unjust steward. Jesus seems to say ‘make friends for yourselves by means of dishonest wealth, so you can have it easy later.’ It sounds like Jesus is throwing integrity out the window along with honesty and accountability and replacing them with a situational ethics "it’s all about me" approach. Could this be? Stay with us as we look into this parable, its context, its meaning, and its lessons for us.

What About Hell?

There are certain questions that everyone, no matter what your faith affiliation, wants to know about. One of those questions has to do with our direction in the afterlife.

There are many denominations of Christians and there are along with those, many interpretations regarding the answers to these questions. What did Jesus teach us about our destiny after we die? Stay with us as we look into some of Jesus’ teachings on this all important matter of life!
