The Cubs Win the World Series and Everything Sad Will Come Untrue


Gandalf! I thought you were dead! But then I thought I was dead myself. Is everything sad going to come untrue? — Sam Gamgee

Do you know what you watched last night?

Do you know why you stayed up until 11 p.m. on a Wednesday night?

Do you know why you were crying at the end of it?

Do you know why you were smiling along with Kris Bryant?

The answers have nothing to do with 108 years of goats and curses. You were not witnessing history. You were beholding prophecy.

Heavenly Bodies: On the Promise of Resurrection


The Holy Spirit had been urging me to talk to her for four days. My sister-in-law lay unresponsive in her hospice bed. She had battled retinitis pigmentosa, which had left her virtually blind, and three different kinds of cancer. Unfortunately, she was losing the battle with the latest type of cancer. The Holy Spirit’s words reverberated in my mind. “Tell her that it’s okay, that I am waiting.”

Simple, right? Or not so simple. Every time I visited her, there were nurses and others in the room I didn’t know. I felt awkward to speak to her like this. “Any day now,” everyone said. “She surely can’t last much longer.” I tried to reason that she didn’t need me to speak to her, that “nature would take its course.”

God had a different opinion.

Q&A: The Certainty of Election, the Reliability of the Bible and the Nature of Hell and Heaven

Of the four questions from Sunday’s Q&A time, not a single one was about our quest, our favorite color or the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.

Be that as it may, the questions were still really good and poignant. To whit: How do I know if I am one of God’s elect? Did the writers of the Bible correctly hear from God? What does the Bible say about hell? Is there free will in heaven?

Solid stuff. Enjoy the answers below. Previous Q&A videos can be found here.

Looking ahead, there may be a brief pause in the post-service Q&A sessions, but that’s a for sure thing just yet. We’ll keep you posted. (You can still text your questions by texting to “QNA42” to 91011.) But on Sunday, March 6, the actual sermon portion of the service will be one giant Q&A session about Romans 9. If the last four sermons have sparked some thoughts, please speak up. You and your questions play a vital role in this discussion. So, to text us your Romans 9 questions, text “ROMES9” to 91011.
