The traditional Christian view of Heaven and Hell assumes that both exist. Beyond that, Christianity disagrees with itself on what Heaven is, what Hell is, who goes where, and how long they stay.
What About Heaven and Hell? approaches the question of eternal destinies from a Messianic Jewish perspective. D. Thomas Lancaster takes listeners on an apocalyptic tour of apostolic-era, Jewish views of the afterlife and uses that information to cast light on New Testament passages about Heaven and Hell. "Our Master was Jewish. It stands to reason that if we want to understand what Yeshua and the apostles believed or taught, we should consider what Judaism believed or taught on the same subject."
Paganism and idolatry are real. Those who live in the West seldom see people worshiping or offering sacrifices to idols, but paganism is as real today as it was in the time of the Bible. Idolatry is not just a metaphor for materialism, it exists in a physical and tangible way as well. Paganism is not just something for the history books, but it is something every believer must guard against even today. Also available in MP3 format as a download here.
