Many years ago, I heard a term for the first time - folk theology. It is a theology based not so much on Scripture but on a set of commonly held beliefs. When it comes to what happens when we die, there is TONS of folk theology. Everything from getting your halo to riding on a cloud with a harp, it seems everyone has an idea of what happens to our bodies when we die.
The thing is - Paul is very clear on what happens when we die and what our hope will be. This week, we'll turn the corner on what Paul has to say about the resurrection and how it affects us by some of Scripture's clearest teachings about the effect of the resurrection on the person who trusts in Christ. I can't wait to dispel some myths and point us to Jesus!
