Retirement: An Opportunity to Serve God

WatchI appreciate John Piper’s view of retirement as an opportunity to serve God in another season of life. I thought about this the other day after playing tennis at an athletic club and overhearing two retired men saying, “We’re not much use anymore, are we?” They were joking, but only sort of.

Does it Dishonor God for Us to Long for Reunion with Loved Ones?

SunsetBelievers periodically tell me versions of the following: “We shouldn’t be thinking about reunion with loved ones, or the joys of Heaven. We should only be thinking about being united with Christ, who is our only treasure.” This sounds spiritual, but is it?

Jesus: The True and the Better

Timothy KellerThe audio in this video is from Tim Keller, www.timothykeller.com. It is so good, so true, and so needed. Please watch as you listen, and draw near to our Savior and King. I've also included the transcript.

Questions in Light of Heaven

WindowWe’ll have eternity to celebrate great victories on the old Earth, but we have only this brief window of opportunity now to win those victories. As missionary C. T. Studd said, “Only one life, ’twill soon be past; only what’s done for Christ will last.”

Remember Those Imprisoned for Christ in Iran

IranPlease pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Iran who are imprisoned for their faith. A few years ago a man named Farshid, featured along with many others in the two-and-a-half minute video below, visited our EPM office.

May 21: The Beginning of the Day of Judgment?

Harold CampingHarold Camping, the 89-year-old founder of Family Radio, has warned the world that Saturday, May 21, 2011 is when the rapture will occur and God’s Day of Judgment will begin. Camping made a similar prediction in 1994, but now claims that the Bible guarantees this new date.

Some Thoughts about Universalism

Spiros ZodhiatesRecently I’ve been going back over hundreds of pages of notes and quotations that I compiled over years of research, but have never used in any of my books on Heaven. I came across this one from Spiros Zodhiates, taking from his book Life After Death.
