HELL AND HEAVEN - continued
Question Thirty One: Jesus called heaven "the kingdom of God" and the
"kingdom of heaven." In fact, both were used interchangeably in the same
parables that were recorded by the different authors of the four gospels.
The very word "kingdom" implies the totality of all God has and is, heaven
obviously being included. Why, then, do we wait to "go to heaven" some
day after we die, when Jesus plainly stated that the kingdom is here now
and within us? What does that mean? (Matt. 3:2; Mark1:15; Luke
Question Thirty Two: A common belief of most christians is that unless
one worships Jesus alone, heaven is unattainable. They base this doctrine
upon the scripture, "no man comes to the Father (God), but by me
(Jesus)." Jesus' ministry showed us how to live and how to love. He led
by example. He showed us how to follow our heavenly Father. In
essence, when you look at Jesus and his life, you should see yourself and
your life. How might that give new understanding to the above verse of
scripture? (John 14:5-7)
Question Thirty: When the disciples asked, "Who then shall be saved?,"
Jesus replied, "The things that are impossible with men are possible with
God." How can some still teach it to be impossible for all to be saved?
Didn't Jesus answer man's doubts in his response? (Luke 18:26-27)
