By Randy Alcorn | August 28, 2013
Adam and Eve were perfect when they were in the garden, but they sinned. Will we be able to sin again in the coming life? Randy answers this question from Romans and Revelation.

Food in Aslan's Country

By Randy Alcorn | August 28, 2013
In this clip Randy explains several verses that are often misused to try to argue that we will have no need for things such as eating and drinking in Heaven. He finishes with an excerpt from C.S. Lewis' "The Last Battle," which describes how the food in Aslan's Country (a representation of Heaven) is far better than anything tasted on this earth.

Can we only worship God on our knees?

By Randy Alcorn | August 28, 2013
Wayne Grudem in his "Systematic Theology" wonders why so many Christians insist on understanding the descriptions of Heaven symbolically. In this clip Randy quotes Grudem to make the point that enjoying things like eating and drinking, bike rides, etc. in this life are not wrong. So why would it be wrong to do those things in the life to come? Will we spend every moment in Heaven worshiping God on our knees? Or can we ride bikes in Heaven to the glory of God just as we can here on this earth.

When "Eating and Drinking" in Heaven is Over-Spiritualized

By Randy Alcorn | August 28, 2013
In other clips, Randy points to our aversion to thinking we will really eat and drink in Heaven, but here Randy shows an example of the over-spiritualization of eating and drinking from the NLT translation of Luke 14:15.

Why Life Now Matters

By Randy Alcorn | August 28, 2013
It is easy to think what we do on this earth doesn't matter because Heaven is unearthly. But Randy suggests that our whole perspective on the importance of things now changes when we understand the reality of the New Earth. Suddenly, things in this life such as trees, laughter and service matter because this life is the beginning of a life that will continue without end on the New Earth.

Luke 14:15 - "Blessed is the man who eats at the feast"

By Randy Alcorn | August 28, 2013
In this clip Randy points out that eating and drinking are often thought of as inherently bad because they are part of this physical world. But that is really an idea that comes from Platonism. In Luke, Jesus says that getting to eat at the feast in God's kingdom is a blessing. From this Randy argues that there is no reason to think that we will only eat and drink in a spiritual sense when in Heaven.
