In this "Big Spiritual Questions" series of videos, we sat down with some New Church ministers to address the most powerful, philosophical, religious questions of all time.
Explore with us as we look at biblical contradictions, romance, the meaning of life, and more.
Why do bad things happen to good people?
If a loving God designed the world and created us, why would He let us suffer?
How can we trust the Bible?
Does it matter that the Bible doesn't always align with current scientific thought? What about the apparent contradictions?
What happens when we die?
The afterlife is a massive mystery, and in this video, we detail what the New Church believes happens (both in general and step-by-step).
Who is God?…Is Jesus God?
Identifying God is no small task. Getting a grasp on the infinite. If only there was a path to connect to this eternal love itself...
How do I get to heaven?
Does heaven seem far off and scary/ Unsure if you're "good enough" to get in? Exactly what does that path to heaven look like?
How does salvation work?
Once saved, always saved? Does admitting Jesus Christ as your personal Savior guarantee you a spot in heaven? We don't think it's so simple.
What is the meaning of life?
It's a little ostentatious to claim to know the answer, but our best guess (in short) is to find and spread happiness.
The secret to a healthy romantic relationship
Relationships aren't always easy, and finding the "answer" or "solution" to relationship issues isn't always easy either.
New Church ideas on marriage and relationships in heaven
Marriage can last into the afterlife, progressing unto eternity. Of course, it's not a trap — bad marriages aren't forever.
Are all things EITHER good or evil? Are there grey areas?
Does everything we do contribute to an ever-growing tower of good and bad deeds? Can we actually morally evaluate what we do?
Why do people have disabilities?
Is God paying attention? What could be the reason for disabilities?
Is heaven just for Christians?
Who is heaven for? What happens to good people (who aren't Christian) when they die?
