Why doesn’t Randy use some of the royalties from his books to offset EPM expenses?

Since the royalties received are way more than the operating budget of EPM, some people ask why we don’t use some of the royalties to fund EPM.

Why doesn’t the Old Testament talk about hell?

The doctrine of Hell is suggested in the Old Testament, but it is much more clearly revealed in the New. Jesus said more about Hell than anyone.

I wish I had time to fully answer your question, but I would suggest that you go to some resources online concerning the subject of Hell.

Why don’t people believe the pill is abortive?

Perhaps your doctor is uninformed and hasn’t read information on the possible abortifacient aspect of the pill. Pastors have many demands on their time and it’s difficult for them to stay abreast of a variety of important issues. If that is the case I would suggest giving him a copy of Does the Birth Control Pill Cause Abortions? or a pdf version of the booklet found here.

Why don’t we pray to Mary and the Saints?

We don’t pray to Mary and the various saints because they are not God, and they have no power to answer prayer. It doesn’t matter whether they know what’s happening on Earth; we should not pray to them, any more then we should pray to our friends on Earth because they know what’s happening in our lives.

Why don’t we think more about Heaven?

“If there be so certain and glorious a rest for the saints, why is there no more industrious seeking after it? One would think, if a man did but once hear of such unspeakable glory to be obtained, and believed what he heard to be true, he should be transported with the vehemency of his desire after it, and should almost forget to eat and drink, and should care for nothing else, and speak of and inquire after nothing else, but how to get this treasure. And yet people who hear of it daily, and profess to believe it as ...

Why don’t we view heaven more accurately? Shouldn’t we be preaching more on this subject?

So, brother, may you use the platform God has given you to help the body of Christ see that the purpose-driven life lasts forever, and the central purpose doesn’t change. God’s purpose for us and the Earth itself will not end but will be always going deeper and always spreading broader to the glory of God. We will behold wonders of God’s new creation beyond our wildest dreams. As his image-bearers we will shape Christ-centered civilization with astounding and delightful features. Forever delivered from the sin and death that once plagued us and our relationships, we will worship and work and rest and serve and laugh and feast and celebrate to God’s glory and our good.

Why don’t you say much about what our lives will be like in the present Heaven in your book Heaven?

Why don’t you say much about what our lives will be like in the Intermediate Heaven in your book Heaven? If there are very few activities, then the common fear of people is that we will be bored with repetitious praying and praising.

The reason I don’t address activities about the intermediate state is because there are not a lot of details given to it.

Why I’m a Big Fan of Hell

Ultimately, it all comes down to this: Any attack on hell is ultimately an attack on the God who created it, and the Scriptures that describe it. Attacking hell, though popular and seemingly compassionate, is not a parlor game; it is a full frontal assault on God's goodness, sovereignty, lordship and love. That's why I hope you become just as big a fan of hell as I am.

Why is Christ in constant intercession for us if our sins are already atoned for?

Question from a reader:

Why is Christ in constant intercession for us if our sins are already atoned for? The Bible refers to Jesus sitting at the right hand of God, making constant intercession for us. My question is: since He already atoned for our sins, past, present, and future, why is constant intercession necessary? It’s not that I don't believe it (because I do), it’s just that I don't understand the reason this is needed. Can you help me to “get it”?

Answer from Randy Alcorn:

Christ intercedes for us for the same reason we ...

Why Is Resurrection So Important?

The physical resurrection of Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of redemption—both for mankind and for the earth. Indeed, without Christ’s resurrection and what it means—an eternal future for fully restored human beings dwelling on a fully restored Earth—there is no Christianity.
