What Happens After Life?

CURRENT PROGRAM
Air Date: May 22, 2015

Host : Jim Schneider

Guest: Dr. Ron Rhodes

Listen: MP3 | Order

Dr. Ron Rhodes is president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries. He is a keynote speaker at conferences across the nation. He has authored more than 60 books of which many deal in the realm of apologetics. He joined Jim Schneider to discuss his book, 'What Happens After Life?: 21 Amazing Revelations About Heaven and Hell.'

While it certainly appears from our perspective that medical science is extending the length of life for humans, according to Ron, we are not entitled to a certain length of life. God has predetermined the amount of time we spend on earth. Eventually we come to what Ron described as an appointed time when our life is to end (See Psalm 139:16 and Job 14:5) and that word 'determined' in Hebrew carries the idea of something that is set in stone by God.

Ron encouraged listeners to have a biblical attitude about death by recognizing heaven's perspective. This involves looking at death as a tiny dot in the realm of time. Our time in heaven can be looked at like a line but our life on earth is like a dot; it's relatively short compared to all of eternity. So Ron is trying to help people learn how to live now in view of then. In other words, don't live for the dot, let's live for the line.

Ron talks about believers and heaven, unbelievers and hell; what happens after death to infants, the mentally challenged and those with memory disorders; whether believers will get a resurrected body; why the doctrine of purgatory brings a very weak view to the doctrine of salvation believers have in Christ; the rapture of
the church; the proper context of Hebrews 6:4-6 and much more.
