Well, last night was a good night!
Went to church and gave my talk on the existence of Heaven and Hell. Had a good crowd show up. Unfortunately, as usual, I had far more prepared than I could deliver in 45-minutes. :: Sigh ::
So, I’ve put the entire manuscript online, and it’s available on my PulpitRodent page.
Some comments I received: My wife noted that she really liked the section on proofs and whether we require the same high level of evidence for most of the things we believe as we do for religious things. She mentioned that it was the kind of thing that once I said it, she felt a “Well, duh!” sort of reaction. The kind of thing you always know, but don’t always articulate. I liked that.
Someone else told me they didn’t know Christ delivered more teaching on Hell and avoiding it than he did on Heaven, that really struck them. A couple guys (Tim and Dave) stayed late and wanted to find out what the best resources were, because they wanted to do a small group study on the topic. Very good.
All in all, it went well, and nobody picked a fight with me. I guess that’s good, right? No audio. They weren’t taping, and I forgot to bring my PDA to record with.
If you’re not in the area read the article on his website. It’s worth it.
