What the Dead Are Doing

#766 – April 1, 2012

Of the many unbiblical teachings at large in the church today, few are so commonly held, with so little Scriptural backing, as the teaching that those who have died are presently alive in some other place. The very notion of the dead being alive was unknown to both Old Testament believers and members of the early church.

This teaching examines the probable roots of this error, and contrasts it with the clear teaching of Scripture regarding the grave. Attention is also given to the way in which this teaching affects other vital Christian truths, particularly the way in which it diminishes our glorious hope – regarding which God does not want us to be ignorant.
[Tom Burke]
