The prof heard the pastor preach judgment at a funeral recently. So it got the guys talking along the lines of Ecclesiastes: "It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for this is the end of all mankind, and the living will lay it to heart." Nothing like a funeral to make us stand on eternity's brink and meditate a bit.
So laying our mortality to heart, the guys discuss eternity. C.S. Lewis and Jonathan Edwards are quoted a few times. The denial by many in the church that Christians will go through a final judgment is addressed with Biblical appeals. The relationship between justification by faith and the final judgment is explained, as is the place of eternal rewards. The difference between living carpe diem versus coram Deo is highlighted. The longing for Christ's return is encouraged.
Hopefully, it's an edifying, eye-raising episode of 3GT!
