WHERE DOES THE SOUL/SPIRIT GO AFTER DEATH? (3)

In article number three, we have reached the point, where it is now necessary to take a better, a fuller look at the “hadean” realm. This takes us to the story of “The rich man and Lazarus,” which is recorded in Luke 16:19 – 31. The text says that both, the rich man and Lazarus, …

WHERE DOES THE SOUL/SPIRIT GO AFTER DEATH? (2)

The question, as we concluded in the first article in this series, was the subject of “hades” and what it means. We learned from David’s prophesy that it was fulfilled in the resurrection of Jesus and this was Peter’s subject in much of the first sermon we have recorded. Of course, the text is Acts …

DEATH, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT?

Of course, this is no one’s favorite subject, but no one gets out of this world, of this life, without death! The basic meaning of the word “death” is separation.

“WHAT IS TRUTH?’” (2)

Truth is one of the most interesting studies a person may engage in! However, many stand with Pilate, and continue to ask: “What is truth,” as though there is no such thing as “truth.” Like one plus one, may at some time not equal two! Cut it up anyway you like; such as: one half …

HERMENEUTICS (7)

In this seventh article on “Hermeneutics,” we are calling attention to basic Hermeneutics. For instance, if you were to read a letter with these words: “I will give you a million dollars;” does it mean that “you” will receive from “me” a million dollars? Sounds simple, does it not? The first thing “you” need to …
