References:Eric Barger and Jan tackle the question, when is it time to leave a church? Both ministries are deluged with church-related questions stating church-related dilemmas. There are some basic issues that serve as a guideline for leaving, unless one is persuaded to stay and try to make changes. The likelihood of that is small. So how to exit gracefully and in a Godly manner, without being divisive but telling the truth? Not an easy assignment and millions are departing unsound churches today, all throughout the Western world. Find Barger's DVDs on the Emergent Church and "The Shack" here. Also, his 8-page pamphlet on the "Twilight" craze. www.ericbarger.com
For the Christian, death is but a transition to a better life. Dr. Ron Rhodes’ book considers many of the aspects of Heaven but it also sounds a warning about Hell. If you are a believer, you can have confidence that we will be leaving the chaos of today’s world for a far better life in Heaven. It will also challenge you to win to Christ those in your life who are spiritually lost as the implications of Hell are enormous. It also considers “near death experiences.” Can these be legitimate?
