3 Do Christians go to Sheol?

Do Christians go to Sheol?

by Stephen Davey
There are two words in the Bible that refer to the same place. "Hades" in the New Testament is the same place as "Sheol" in the Old Testament. Hades is the Greek word and Sheol is the Hebrew word.

It is a temporary place of torment for those who have rejected God. read more

1 Forgiveness

Forgiveness

by Scott Wylie
At its core, forgiveness is the act of letting go of anger, resentment, and bitterness towards someone who has wronged us. It's about choosing to release the other person from their debt, even when they don't deserve it. But forgiveness is not just about the other person - it's also about our own healing and liberation from the pain of past hurts. read more

3 Does God let people contact the dead?

Does God let people contact the dead?

by Stephen Davey
Someone asking this question is probably thinking about 1 Samuel 28, when King Saul goes in disguse to meet with a medium, and the dead prophet Samuel appears to them. From this we know that mediums did exist in Israel, despite that warning in Leviticus that they should not be consulted. However, in this one instance, God does allow Saul to speek with the dead. But the passage makes clear this was not done by the power of the human medium; in fact, we read in the passage that when Samuel does appear, "she cried out with a loud voice" (1 Samuel 28:12). In other words, she was surprised! She didn't think Samuel would appear, because she knew she didn't really have this power; she was faking it. read more

3 Will young children be raptured?

Will young children be raptured?

by Stephen Davey
The age of accountability is not a fixed age. It varies from child to child. It refers to a level of maturity in which a child is able to understand the gospel and make a decision for or against Jesus. I further believe that some people remain permanently in that state if they are born with a mental disability that prevents them from having an informed response to the gospel. Anyone who dies prior to the age of accountability would be granted entrance into heaven. Everyone in that category will be raptured as well.  read more
3 Can people who never hear the gospel go to heaven?

Can people who never hear the gospel go to heaven?

by Stephen Davey
This is a difficult truth, but the short answer to your question is no. The Bible tells us that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

This reality should quicken the church to be active in both world missions and Bible translation.  But I'll say a bit more. read more
