Our Future After Death — Resurrection on Earth or Life in Heaven? – Christian Article

This was a rather difficult article to write, because there are so many Christians with opposing opinions. Serious debates covering this topic produce anxiety, and many lay people show signs of agitation discussing this subject. I know, because I’ve seen, heard, and been involved with it all. I’ve been called sacrilegious, profane, and anti-Christian in my opinions and even, once, someone implied that I am a minister of the devil — “Exactly what kind of minister are you, anyway?” a…

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.’ I’ve always been taught that place would be in heaven. But your article leads me to…
