St. Benedict's triumphal ascent to heaven by Johann Michael Rottmayr - Melk Abbey (Austria)

Resurrection Life in the Age to Come

The traditional picture of the eternal state as an ethereal, floaty, intangible, interminable disembodied church service is frankly bizarre and unappealing. It is small wonder that many professing Christians remain so firmly attached to this present life, despite what they may tell their Sunday school teachers.

In this message entitled “Resurrection Life in the Age to Come” (based on 1 Corinthians 15:35-49), Alan Gomes, author of 40 Questions About Heaven and Hell, dispels some harmful myths and shows why a clear and correct belief on the nature of the glorious, physical resurrection body and of eternal life on a glorious, resplendent physical earth will profoundly change the way we live our lives today.
