ETERNITY FROM A BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW

Will Eternity be Different For Each Of Us? – Part 2 – Hell?

Eternity... As Biblical Christians, we know that life does not end at the grave. Further, there is neither the ability to change our destiny after we die (Heb. 9:27), nor can we expect to find an ultimate nirvana, based on the false theology of reincarnation. Mankind lives a life on this earth, at the end of which we are judged either by our works (our deeds) or our relationship with Jesus Christ.  What follows in this article is a view of Hell and whether some of those who enter that domain will experience differing levels of torment.

Will Eternity be Different For Each Of Us? – Part 1 – Heaven?

There have been numerous books written on what Heaven will be like. One of the thickest and perhaps most interesting, is Randy Alcorn’s, “Heaven: A Comprehensive Guide to Everything the Bible Says About Our Eternal Home…” In the book, Randy uses his “sanctified imagination” to paint a beautiful picture of what Heaven will be like for the Believer. It has been some time since I read the book, however, Randy also has a blog, offering his insights on whether Heaven will be different for each of us.
