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.

Why is the church so divided?

You are certainly not alone in wishing that various groups–you specifically highlighted liberals, orthodox, and fundamentalists–just put differences aside and get along. I will briefly look at these three groups and suggest why this may not be Biblically possible at this time in Kingdom history.

Why Pastors’ Conferences?

We value the support of God’s people in making a difference in the lives of these needy pastors and Christian workers in the churches they serve through these conferences for the glory of God.

Why should we sharpen our abilities and character now when we’ll have eternity to do so?

Question from a reader:

Why should we sharpen our gifts, skills, abilities and character now while on Earth, partially in preparation for Heaven (where those gifts will be used for Christ), when we'll have eternity to do so?

HeavenAnswer from Randy Alcorn:

Part of the issue is why should we be working on something now? Because this life is a limited opportunity to make choices to follow Christ in a world that is opposed to Him. The idea of why not wait until eternity, since we’ll have all eternity to learn things, is answered because God says not ...
