You, or someone you know, may see God as an angry malevolent dictator who delights in sending people to hell. A careful reading of the bible though, reveals a God who is passionately in love with his creation and especially his image bearers, human beings. If that’s true, why is there a hell?
Brian Aulick, lead pastor at Engedi Church helps us see the connection between the extraordinarily kind heart of God and the reality of hell. First, God’s anger springs from his beating heart of love. Then, what hell is and the God who doesn’t want anyone to be there. Next, God doesn’t send anyone to hell, we choose. Next, good people go to heaven, bad people go to hell? That’s actually not true at all.
Then, a really good guy who realized that he was headed to hell. Next, the Lord wants believers in Jesus, who’ve been rescued from hell, to experience heaven not just when we die, but in the here and now! Last, how the reality of hell, and the love of Jesus that rescues us from it, compels us to rescue the perishing. Please share this show!
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
Perry and Shawna Mornings helps start your day with heart-to-heart conversations, compelling guests, and songs reminding you that you are Abba’s child! You have been blessed to be a blessing, and you have been loved to share Jesus’ love!
