Many people spend more time planning for a vacation than preparing for eternity. Perhaps it doesn't seem real that we will still exist—fully conscious and alive—beyond the grave. But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of One Minute After You Die, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says. Can near-death experiences teach us anything about life after death? How can we prepare for our own final moment?

It takes gall to celebrate sin in a church. Yet this happened at Thyatira, a church singled out by Jesus for judgment in the book of Revelation. Its false prophetess advocated sexual immorality. And false prophets in our time advocate for false teachings and sinful behavior too!

Teachers play a crucial role in the formation of youth. In the same way, Bible teachers have enormous influence on the members of a church. False doctrines are easily spread. Jesus tells an ancient church to reject teachings He hates, and we should do the same.

In the book of Revelation, Jesus addressed the church at Pergamum in what is now Turkey. In the strongest terms, He decried their willingness to adopt false teachings, which actually advocated immorality. Could this happen today?
