Randy Alcorn's Blog: heaven

Remembering Edith Schaeffer

Edith SchaefferEdith Schaeffer was a Christ-loving, creative, caring, and classy woman. She entered the presence of Jesus this past weekend, at age 98.

The Problem with Christoplatonism

The false assumptions of Christoplatonism, compared to Genesis 1:31: And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good

Christoplatonism—there’s a word that you don’t hear every day. It’s actually a word that I made up (probably the only word I’ve ever made up!) and used in my comprehensive Heaven book to speak of the Christianized philosophy of Plato.

Spend Your Day with Eternity in Mind

Adoniram Judson

Missionary Adoniram Judson said this (read these words carefully):

A life once spent is irrevocable. It will remain to be contemplated for eternity. The same may be said of each day. When it is once past, it is gone forever.

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.

Watch the first full session from my Eternity 101 DVD set

Eternity 101I really enjoyed teaching a 12-hour course on Heaven and the New Earth at Corban University last spring. We had it filmed with the goal of providing an affordable DVD set people can use for personal study, or in their churches, classes or small groups.

The Words We Long to Hear

“Well done, good and faithful servant. . . . Enter into the joy of your master.”Jesus tells us that one day His faithful servants will hear their Master say, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master” (Matthew 25:23, ESV).

 

A Mixed Bag of Short Questions and Answers

questionsToday's blog is a combination of several short answers to questions I've responded to lately. Some are questions I've received on my Facebook page. Though I can't possibly respond to every question that comes in, I do read each and every comment and question with interest and appreciation. I just wish I could reply to more of them. Maybe on the New Earth! (If you're interested in reading other questions and answers, the EPM website has many more Q & As, articles, and resources.)

How do I minister to an unsaved friend whose loved one died without a relationship with Christ?

Unsaved friendIn today’s blog, I’m answering one final question that was asked by a reader:

How would you respond and minister to unsaved friends or family (or even strangers) who have lost a loved one and assume their lost loved one is in Heaven, even though that person clearly did not have a relationship with Jesus Christ?

Sci-fi Nerds and Heaven

EnterpriseRecently one of our EPM staff members fowarded me this question from her husband: Will there be sci-fi super nerds in Heaven? And will we all get together and build the Enterprise?

Over the years I have been asked many profound questions about Heaven.

This is not one of them.

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!
