Will There Be Sex in Heaven?

Will There Be Sex in Heaven?

Sexual relations existed before the Fall and were not the product of sin and the Curse; they were God’s original and perfect design. Because the lifting of the Curse will normally restore what God originally made, we would expect sex to be part of that. However, Christ appears to have made it clear that people in Heaven wouldn’t be married to each other.

Are People In Heaven Aware Of What Happens Today On Earth?

Are People In Heaven Aware Of What Happens Today On Earth?

One of the common questions about Heaven I’ve heard over the years is, “Do people in Heaven know what's presently happening on earth?” In an interview with Pastor Todd Wagner, I share more thoughts related to this question.

Anticipating the New Heavens and the New Earth to come at TGC15

Anticipating the New Heavens and the New Earth to come at TGC15

Nanci and I recently returned from The Gospel Coalition’s 2015 National Conference in Orlando. We had a wonderful time at the conference, where we joined 6,000 others from all over the world to focus on Jesus and the New Heavens and New Earth. 

Do We Get a Second Chance after Death?

Do We Get a Second Chance after Death?

In this video, EPM’s Julia Stager talks about whether or not the Bible teaches that we get a second chance to believe in Jesus after death. This five minute video is well worth watching and sharing.

What’s the Difference between the Present Heaven and the Future Heaven?

What’s the Difference between the Present Heaven and the Future Heaven?

Life in the present Heaven (which theologians call the “intermediate” Heaven) is “better by far” than living here on Earth under the curse (Phil. 1:23). But it’s not our final destination.

C . S. Lewis, The Romantic Rationalist, and Longing for the New Earth

C. S. Lewis, The Romantic RationalistIn Mere Christianity Lewis lamented that we haven’t been trained to want Heaven: "Our whole education tends to fix our minds on this world. …when the real want for Heaven is present in us, we do not recognize it. Most people, if they had really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world."

Going to the Party

BalloonsImagine someone takes you to a party. You see a few friends there, enjoy a couple of good conversations, a little laughter, and some decent appetizers. The party’s all right, but you keep hoping it will get better. Give it another hour, and maybe it will. Suddenly, your friend says, “I need to take you home.”

Now?

 

Why the Reality of the Resurrection Means You Don’t Need a “Bucket List”

Bucket, BeachThe term “bucket list” was popularized by the 2007 movie of that name. It’s an inventory of things people want to do before they “kick the bucket.” The idea is, since our time on earth is limited, if something is important for us to do, we have to do it now, because this is our only chance to do it.

Might Some Animals Talk on the New Earth?

DogMost people who’ve enjoyed the children’s stories of Beatrix Potter, C. S. Lewis, or others who wrote of talking animals have probably never seriously considered the possibility that some animals might actually have talked in Eden or that they might talk on the New Earth.

The Thrill of Seeing Christ Face-to-Face

SunOne day in Heaven, we will see Christ in His glory. The most exhilarating experiences on Earth, such as white-water rafting, skydiving, or extreme sports, will seem tame compared to the thrill of seeing Jesus.
