*Even though the world is changing the only unchanging thing is the gospel of Jesus
Christ. Many think it has changed, but it has not! The methods of sharing it in
our fast-changing world have changed. Our church programming must continually keep
up with the contemporary world or else we will become ineffective in reaching out! Heaven
** The gospel has not changed: God has given Jesus: Man is sinner: He has choice: Hell
T.S.: Story is a parable or not, ABRAHAM'S BOSOM--paradise, where the dead in God liveed till
the redemption of Christ on Cross!
Hebrew (sheol) the underworld where the dead live.
Greek (adns)Hades, a {fark, obscure, and miserable place far fro-m hleaven, where those
who lived witt hrist will be punished forever.
