Do you know -
1) — that the Bible teaches we do NOT go to heaven or hell immediately after we die, even though most religions and many popular TV programs promote the false belief that we shift into another living dimension at death? The Bible doesn’t teach the immortality of the soul. However, what it does teach about the awesome human potential God has planned for us will excite you!
2) — why and how the decision by Adam and Eve to eat the fruit from the forbidden ‘tree of the knowledge of good and evil’ against God’s express command has affected mankind so negatively down through the ages?
The biblical answers to all these questions can be found in our free booklet Why Were You Born? They will fill you with awe and wonder for our great Creator!
Through Jesus Christ's sacrifice, human beings can be reconciled to God, and God's forgiveness of their sin will remove the death penalty.
Scripture makes clear that God actually begets us spiritually in His own image, with the intention that we ultimately become the same kind of beings He and Jesus Christ now are.
While the biblical concept of deification or divinization, exaltation to godhood, is commonly ignored or dismissed in modern Christian teaching, this doctrine was well established among early theologians of mainstream tradition.
Never underestimate the value of your life. You were born to become one of God's divine children. You were born to receive His very nature and character and, eventually, eternal life on His level of existence.
Staggering changes are taking place in Western society. Standards and cultural structures that have stood for thousands of years are being dismantled. The very foundations of society—what it means to be a man, a woman, a husband, a wife, a father and a mother—are being cast away without regard for what will replace them. God’s very design for human societies—with a man and a woman united in marriage to have children—is being deliberately destroyed. Who and what is behind this? Why is it happening? What is God’s purpose for sex, marriage and family? You need to understand what’s taking place and why! Discover the answers in this issue of Beyond Today.
