  • He died for us, we must live for him

    If you pose the question to anyone that you meet, “When you die, where will you spend eternity?” Almost without exception the answer will come, “in heaven.” But if you press the issue to ask, by what evidence you make that assertion, it frequently will start to fall apart.
