Sermon Notes

I was cleaning some of the old bulletins out of my Bible this afternoon and found a bulletin that I had written some notes in about death from a sermon on John 11:11-16. That is the passage about the death of Lazarus. Here is what I have written:

Biblical Death
is separation
1. Physical - soul from body
2. Spiritual - soul from God, no intimacy with God
3. Eternal - permanent, separation of soul from God - Hell

Death is a doorway not a passage.
"We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." 2 Corinthians 5:8

This was from July 3, 2005. Little did we know Dad only had about 6 weeks left at this point. July 3rd to August 26th is not that long after all.
