Message Title: Will There be Candy and Cartoons in Heaven?
Message Text: Mark 12:18-37
Message Truth: When we don’t know the Scriptures, we don’t have an anchor for truth and belief. When we don’t know the power of God, we doubt God’s ability to do what He has promised in the Scriptures.
The Sadducees Make Two Mistake:
1.Ignorance of the Scripture
2.Ignorance of the Power of God
We Make Two Mistakes
1.We assume Heaven is just a better version of earth.
2.We assume Earth Can be Heaven.
If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. C.S. Lewis
If you read history you will find that the Christians who did the most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. C.S. Lewis
