Would you like to know what the Bible really teaches about; Heaven, the Afterlife and the Renewed Earth, in less than 2 hrs? A subject which seems to befuddle most Christians, these days. Then this book is a must read, for you.
In it you’ll discover that Heaven is not the believers’ ultimate and permanent home.
Vic Matthews in the book “God Doesn’t Want You in Heaven” cuts to the chase, explaining clearly and simply from the latest, leading edge scholarship what the Jews of Jesus’ day and the first century Christians believed about the Hope, that God’s Salvation offers to all mankind, and it wasn’t Heaven.
You learn how Greek philosophy influenced the Church’s position on Heaven, how God’s original plan has always been for us to be earth dwellers, and what the Resurrection of the dead (unique to Judaism and Christianity) actually means for a believer, and finally he dismantles the misconceptions surrounding those passages which seem to imply that Heaven is our permanent home.
This book concisely summarises what the Bible teaches on this important topic. It’s a must if you’re too busy to read the volumes of scholarship on this subject and want a foundation reference that’s easy to read and uncompromising in its treatment of Heaven and the Renewed Earth.
