Food in Aslan's Country

In this clip Randy Alcorn 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?

Wayne Grudem in his "Systematic Theology" wonders why so many Christians insist on understanding the descriptions of Heaven symbolically. In this clip Randy Alcorn 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. This video clip was excerpted from Randy's Eternity 101 DVD class.

Why Life Now Matters

It is easy to think what we do on this earth doesn't matter because Heaven is unearthly. But Randy Alcorn 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"

In this clip Randy Alcorn 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. This video clip was excerpted from Randy's Eternity 101 DVD class.

Luke 22:18 - Eating and Drinking in Heaven

Luke 22:18 is often quoted as definitive proof that we will not eat and drink in God's Kingdom. But in the context of Luke 22 Jesus is addressing legalistic rules of what one is allowed to eat and drink. Randy Alcorn clarifies that Jesus is saying God's Kingdom at its core is not concerned with such legalistic things. But the rest of Scripture indicates that we will be eating and drinking in Heaven and Randy explains how this may be a beneficial experience.
