This past week (10/11) we dove into the last of the big five worldview questions: Where Are We Going? Where is all this headed? Are we really going to “hell in a hand basket”? Are we believers just supposed to jump ship? or bide our time until Jesus comes back to destroy everything and take us to heaven?
It’s been said that some people are so heavenly focused that they are no earthly good. This comes from a misunderstanding of what Jesus meant by the Kingdom of Heaven. Our modern misconceptions about heaven/the afterlife/eternal life are more representative of Islam, Buddhism, and even the Greek understanding of Hades/Elysium and present a less than accurate conception of heaven as revealed in the Scriptures.
So buckle up, because we’re all on a trip going somewhere. Click the box below to listen to the audio from class, and follow along with the presentation notes. I’ve added a few more videos than we had time to get to in class. So be sure to check these out, too!
