The story is told of Abraham Lincoln traveling on horseback during a period of spring flooding. Another traveler asked him how he intended to cross a particular river that was still many miles ahead of him. Lincoln reportedly replied that it was his policy to never cross a river until he first reached it. While it is generally good advice to not borrow trouble from the future—as Jesus said, each day has trouble enough for itself—there is a great river ahead that all of us must cross over. Yet as the hymn writer said: “The water is wide, I cannot cross over, and neither have I wings to fly.” All of this, of course, is metaphorical language about heaven. Except for those alive when Jesus returns, all of us must traverse the river of death. And when we do, we shall stand before the Ever Living One. And in that singular moment, what we are trusting in to gain admission to heaven will be fully revealed.What is your hope of heaven based upon? Dr. D. James Kennedy with his message: “True Faith and False" provides solid ground to stand upon.

About D. James Kennedy, Ph.D.
The late Dr. D. James Kennedy remains one of the most listened-to Christian ministers in America. His forthright and rational presentation of the Gospel is heard via television, radio, and the Internet throughout America and the world.
Dr. Kennedy, who entered the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ, on September 5, 2007, began his Christian life in 1953 after he was startled awake one Sunday morning by a preacher's stern question coming out of his clock radio. "Suppose you were to die today and stand before God," the voice boomed, "and He were to ask you, 'What right do you have to enter into My heaven?' — what would you say?" Dr. Kennedy soon discovered the answer, was converted to Christ, and shortly thereafter was called into the Gospel ministry. Today, Dr. Kennedy's broadcast messages are televised to a nationwide audience.
Dr. Kennedy served for 47 years as Senior Minister of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A modest mission church of 45 people when Dr. Kennedy arrived in 1959, the rocketing growth of the church made it, for 15 years, the fastest growing Presbyterian church in America. Decision magazine named the church one of the "Five Great Churches of North America." In 2005, Dr. Kennedy was inducted into the National Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
Dr. Kennedy's energetic commitment to both evangelism and cultural renewal is demonstrated by four organizations he founded: Truth in Action Ministries (formerly Coral Ridge Ministries), Evangelism Explosion International, Knox Theological Seminary, and Westminster Academy.
