Companies are creating microchip implants which can provide health benefits and enable you to buy and sell merchandise more securely. But many Christians see this as the “Mark of the Beast”? If companies sold an implantable microchip, would you get one? What if the government required people to get one? Would you then?
Some say that Jesus talked about hell more than heaven and so we should do the same. Rubbish! Jesus didn’t talk about hell more than heaven. He really didn’t talk about either too much. We don’t threaten or bribe people into the Kingdom of God, but simply lay a grand vision for what life could be like with Jesus.
Soul sleep is the idea that after a person dies, they exist unconsciously until the future resurrection. But is this idea taught in the Bible? I say no. I believe that after a person dies, if they have believed in Jesus for eternal life, they go immediately to be with God in heaven.
Luke 17:20-24 and Mark 14:62 seem to indicate Jesus’ second coming will be in the clouds. But will it? I am not so sure. Jesus will return physically, but may not as many of us think. In fact, Jesus can return today through our words and actions toward others.
