Randy Alcorn's Blog: eternity

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.”

Follow-up on Rob Bell and the Hell Controversy

Rob BellThis is my third and possibly last blog on this subject. But given its importance to the gospel of Christ and the health of Christ’s body, I make no promises.

Someone placed my Friday blog on their site. A journalist who read it posted this response:  “Alcorn's piece has a pretty major error of fact in the post. It's in this statement: ‘every human being will ultimately be saved, and that none will experience Hell.’ That's not what Bell says in Love Wins.”

Rob Bell's "Love Wins," and the Biblical Doctrine of Hell

Love WinsI mentioned in an earlier post Rob Bell’s book Love Wins. I read it several weeks ago. It contains some good and accurate things here and there, but unfortunately its central message is in explicit contradiction to Scripture and historic Christianity.

It’s No Accident You Live in This Time and Place

WalletWhen the following was posted last month on the Desiring God blog, written by Michael Oh, I was very touched by it. Read it, ponder it, pray over it. In case God speaks to your heart about giving, I’ve included a few ministries you may wish to invest in, an investment which will pay off for eternity.

A Man from Heaven: How would he spend his money?

Charles SpurgeonRecently I was working on a book project that involved my reading through messages Charles Spurgeon preached on Heaven. I was delighted to come across a passage in which he affirms some of the same teachings I lay out in my books The Treasure Principle and Money, Possessions and Eternity. While writing those books years ago, had I been aware that Spurgeon had said what follows, I certainly would have quoted from him!

Sono Sato Harris: Precious beyond Words

Sono HarrisLast night, on Independence Day, our dear friend Sono Harris went home to be with Jesus. She is a precious and faithful sister, one of a kind, and all the more precious now as her faith has become sight.

The fireworks crackling all around us last night, even as I talked on the phone with some of the Harris family, spoke of a great event. Sono's entrance to the presence of her Savior was a truly great event for her, though hard on those left behind. Please pray for husband Gregg and children Josh, Joel, Alex, Brett, Sarah, Isaac, and James.

Convergence DVDs, and the Incarnation of Christ

Randy Alcorn with Don MillerThose who follow me on Facebook might remember some pictures I posted at the end of last year, from a trip I took to Los Angeles to do some filming with Don Miller about my books Heaven and If God Is Good. That conversation has recently been released on a DVD called "Heaven: Understanding God's Plan and Our Hope," part of a DVD series called Convergence (www.allthingsconverge.com) that's designed specifically for small groups, but also great for individuals.

 

Hope in Discouraging Times

flowerSeveral people have already asked about my response to the passage of the Health Care Reform Bill and its inclusion of abortion. Yes, I am deeply concerned about its effect on unborn children. However, even though this bill has passed, the righteous cause of the unborn is not over. The indictment against people who shed innocent blood is not over. The command of God is not over: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; defend the rights of the poor and needy” (Proverbs 31:8-9).

 

Bob Hawkins Sr.: A Real Follower of Jesus

Bob Hawkins, Sr.Bob Hawkins Sr., founder of Harvest House Publishers and a real follower of Jesus, went to Heaven last Tuesday, February 9. (My most recent book, The Promise of Heaven, was published by Harvest House.) I met Bob Sr. years ago and thought the world of him, as did nearly everyone, I think. I am sorrowing with Bob's family and rejoicing with them, too.
