In Light of Eternity: 59 Excerpts

In Light of Eternity: 59 Excerpts

The following excerpts are from IN LIGHT OF ETERNITY: Perspectives on Heaven, by Randy Alcorn.

What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

I enjoy hanging out with Nanci, my wife, and our kids and grandkids. I coach high school guys tennis, so I play three or four times a week. Running around on the tennis court with seventeen-year-olds is a great way to get exercise (I’m the singles coach, and we’ve won the district championship four years in a row, which is fun.) I love investing in the lives of these young men. I’ve had wonderful opportunities with them. Many of them read my books and we talk about them, and about the Lord. Just yesterday I gave one ...

What do you think about C. S. Lewis’s book A Grief Observed and his views on purgatory?

He’s speaking with a perspective severely limited by his grief. His raw emotion sometimes trumps his actual beliefs with the agony of his grief. 

What do you think about invitro fertilization, frozen embryos, etc.?

What do you think about invitro fertilization, frozen embryos, etc.?

There is substantial scientific reason to believe frozen embryos are persons and should be granted the same rights as older, larger, and less vulnerable persons.

What do you think about the concept of a body-soul split?

I believe this is a subject of immense importance to our understanding of Scripture. Our Platonic/Gnostic assumptions have skewed our views, shifting them closer to Buddhism and Hinduism than to biblical Christianity, which is centered an actual physical resurrection of not only Christ and people but the earth itself, an earth God called “very good” and has never given up on.

What do you think about us having a personal guardian angel?

The guardian angel question is a tough one. We know they exist, and we know that children have them, because we're told the children’s angels continuously behold the face of the Father.

What do you think of the doctrine of eternal rewards?

What do you think of the doctrine of eternal rewards?

Eternal rewards is a hot topic in the evangelical community, partly because some people think it is anti-grace and leads to works-righteousness to earn salvation. Nothing could be further from the truth, but that’s the perception.

 

What do you think of the fact that I believe in Jesus Christ, but have a spirit friend?

If you have a spirit friend who communicates with you, you are (or think you are) in fact “consulting the dead.” Even if he is coming on his own initiative, the spirit is disguising himself as someone who is being welcomed by you, instead of being told to stay away on the basis of the shed blood of Jesus.

What do you think of the progestin only pill as a contraceptive while nursing?

The so-called mini-pill is the least reliable in suppressing ovulation. Therefore, its mechanism of action is more likely to be post-ovulatory—that is, abortifacient.
