A most comforting thought is that our Christian loved ones are "asleep in Jesus." But, what exactly does that mean? What does the Bible say?
Through the years, many questions have been asked about things in the Bible, some concerning the church of Christ. Most of the answers people have suggested are wrong (especially those found on the internet), so we need to go to God's Word to find the facts. What does the Bible say?
In John 7:45-53, we find the account of some men who were sent to find Jesus and, when they arrived and heard Him, returned and said, "Never man spake like this man." How DID he speak and why did they say what they did? And, how does this apply to us today?
I’m sure all of us have, at one time or another, wondered how long we have on this earth and when our lives will be over. But there’s a much more important question than that. What will be the conclusion of each one of us AFTER we die and pass from this life? That question is posed in First Peter 4:17, when the apostle Peter asked, “What shall the end be?”
A rich man came to Jesus and ask what he could do to have eternal life. After the Lord told him the answer, the man went away sorrowful. Jesus then told his disciples that it would be easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than it would be for a rich man to enter heaven. The disciples then asked, "Who then can be saved?" What does the Bible say?
