If we define a ghost as a dead person who has come back to life to communicate with the living, the answer is no. There are, however, evil spirits, or fallen angels, who work with Satan trying to encourage mankind to do evil things. For more on this subject, watch this short video designed for children.
The Bible warns us to stay away from witchcraft, fortune tellers, and anything associated with such things, like ouija boards, tarot cards, and horoscopes. These are known as “occult” practices, and they are evil in the sight of God. For more, watch this short animated video for kids.
When someone dies, it’s as if they have gone to sleep. Do you remember last night when you were asleep? Probably not! Death is like sleep; you don’t feel or know anything. So, what happens with a person's "soul" and what IS a soul? Watch this short animated video for more!
Understanding the truth about hell can be difficult. On the third part of a 3-part series, we analyze particularly difficult texts to explain that were specifically asked of us on our social media accounts (cqbiblepodcast)
A few weeks ago we began to look at the nature of the soul as defined in the Bible – not as defined by traditions or mythology or different social groupings - but as defined by the Bible. What we found was the Bible clearly states that the soul – the being of man and animal - is mortal and subject to death, which is the absence of life. This program looks at Scriptures that seem to contradict this conclusion, as well as the difference between "soul" and "spirit." What does the Bible tell us?
(Part I of a 2-part series) Death and taxes – two sure things for us in this life. Now, with taxes we can always try and avoid them – we can shelter our money, make less money, get a better tax advisor – you know – we can play the game and sometimes even come out ahead. With death there is no game, for it eventually finds every one of us. The only question here is what really happens when you die? Do you leave your body and go someplace or are you dead – really dead – as in not alive, not aware, just plain ol’ expired? As you already know, such a question has many different answers – stay with us as we attempt to establish a biblical perspective on the matter!
Life is a precious, miraculous gift from God. Having life is a sacred charge to live fully, cleanly and in a God-honoring fashion. So, what happens when we die? Does our soul immediately go off somewhere else and continue an unending cycle of life – or do we die – literally get our lights clicked off until a time of resurrection? For most Christians, there has been for centuries, a very clearly stated answer to this question of the events after death. But, what if...? What if there was biblical evidence pointing to a different answer? Stay with us as we look into this challenging, emotional and controversial subject!
To a large degree, human beings are somewhat of a mystery. It is amazing how much we know about our form of life and it is even more amazing how little we know about it. What about the human soul and the human spirit? What are they? Can they die? Can you have one without the other? What about the body? Where does that fit in? Does a soul need a body? Does a body need a soul? Stay with us as we look into the scriptural definitions of these things to try and find the answers. For such an old book, written over such a long period of time by so many different writers, it will amaze you how clear the answers are to these questions!
