Description

Chapel from October 16, 2009. C. S. Lewis was right to say, Scripture and tradition habitually put the joys of heaven into the scale against the sufferings of earth, and no solution of the problem of pain that does not do so can be called a Christian one. But will Heaven be worth it? One Biola undergrad fought back tears as she confided that she wasnt sure she wanted to go to heaven because she was afraid that eternity would be boring. And sadly, shes not alone. Many suffer from the devils propaganda that heaven will be lousy. I call this Extreme makeover: metaphysical edition. After all, how can eternity make up for our suffering here if eternity itself must be endured? 2 Corinthians 4:16-18. This is part 3 of 3 in the series "The 1 On: Defending the Faith". Dr. Clay Jones is a part of the Christian Apologetics faculty at Biola University.
