Will We Lose Our Identities in Heaven?

| February 23, 2015

No, but this seems to concern some believers. Author Randy Alcorn, in his book Heaven, deals with this question. A man wrote me expressing his fear of losing his identity in Heaven: “Will being like Jesus mean the obliteration of self?” He was afraid that we’d all be alike, that he and his treasured friends […]

Will We Have Desires in Heaven?

| February 9, 2015

Buddhism teaches that the human problem is that we have desires. All desires are bad and Buddhist “heaven” consists of a state where we stop desiring anything. This understanding of the human condition is completely at odds with Christianity. Christianity teaches that there are good desires and bad desires. Our problem is the bad desires. […]

Will Human Culture Disappear in Heaven?

| February 2, 2015

Some Christians are under the impression that in Heaven everything will revert back to a primitive paradise, like what Adam and Eve experienced. They reason that the achievements of mankind are worthless, and in most cases, an affront to God’s plan. Did God plan, though, for Adam and Eve, and all mankind, to remain in […]

Will Worship Be Boring in Heaven?

| January 19, 2015

If you really believe that worship could be boring in Heaven, you have no idea of who God is. Randy Alcorn slams this point home in his book Heaven. Some subjects become less interesting over time. Others become more fascinating. Nothing is more fascinating than God. The deeper we probe into his being, the more […]

What Will Worship Be Like in Heaven?

| January 16, 2015

Many a pastor and worship leader has told their congregations that they if don’t like singing and worship in church services now, they won’t enjoy Heaven, because that’s all we’ll do in Heaven. Is that literally true? Is that all we’ll do? Randy Alcorn tackles this question in his book Heaven. Let’s see what he […]

What Will It Mean for the Curse to Be Lifted?

| January 5, 2015

In the Book of Genesis we read that after Adam and Eve sinned against God, God pronounced a curse on them and all creation. “Cursed is the ground [earth] because of you” (Genesis 3: 17). Mankind would be subject to “painful toil” among “thorns and thistles.” After a difficult life, men and women would die, returning […]

Is Heaven an Immaterial Realm?

| January 2, 2015

Not the eternal Heaven (New Earth) that all believers will occupy when they are resurrected. The eternal Heaven (New Earth) will be a physical world with material objects, not some ghostly place where we float on spiritual “clouds.” Randy Alcorn sets us straight about the eternal Heaven in his book called Heaven. Alcorn laments: Many […]

#6 Post of 2014 – Are Believers Judged After They Die?

| December 19, 2014

Many Christians believe the answer to this question is “no.” Of course, they would be wrong. The New Testament clearly claims that all people, believers and unbelievers, are judged for their works after they die. Randy Alcorn, in his book Heaven, lays out the biblical evidence for this view. Alcorn describes the first judgment, after […]

Will We Have Free Will in Heaven?

| December 1, 2014

We’re told in Scripture that in Heaven there will be no sin and no evil of any kind. This leads to the question of human free will, because Adam and Eve were free to choose between good and evil, and as humans alive on earth now, we also have the ability to choose between good […]

In Heaven, Will We Be Aware of Bad Things on Earth?

| November 19, 2014

How can we enjoy Heaven if we are aware of all the evil that persists on earth? This is a good question, and Randy Alcorn, in his book Heaven, offers a biblical answer. Alcorn believes that believers who are in Heaven right now are aware of what’s going on down here on earth. He reasons […]
