16 Questions about Heaven and the New Earth March 9, 2023

I always enjoy anytime I get to have a conversation with Sean McDowell, who teaches at Biola/Talbot and has a very engaging and helpful YouTube channel on apologetics. Sean and I did another Q&A on Heaven recently, with some different questions and answers.

  1. How did your belief in Heaven frame your loss of your wife? (1:00)
  2. How do you deal with doubt? (3:31)
  3. What gives you hope? (6:02)
  4. Is Heaven real? (8:26)
  5. How will Heaven be exciting if there’s no risk? (13:25)

  7. How about our pets? (20:15)
  8. How can we enjoy Heaven if some of our loved ones are not there? (22:53)
  9. Can people sin in Heaven? (26:53)
  10. Will there be external temptation? (29:50)
