Is hell in the bible? What if I quit church? Didn't Jesus die on the
cross to save everyone? Do I have free will? Is God mad at the world?
Where's God? I don't understand the Bible! Am I going to burn in hell if I
sin? Is there a heaven? My pastor says I have to be baptized. Where is my
dead mother? Is Satan real? Does God really care if I love Him? Is there
a hell? Why is there so much evil in the world? Isn't God in control?
Q: I enjoy learning from your
teachings, but I am having a hard time understanding our body, soul and
spirit. Are the body and soul the same or different? I have heard some
say that when the body dies, it goes in the grave, the soul goes to the
unseen place and the spirit goes back to God, who gave it. What is the
unseen place and why should it matter if the person is dead? I have
read the scripture that says the dead know nothing. Its all kind of
confusing to me.

body and soul are different. The body is a thing, but the soul is not a
"thing." It is the result of the joining of the spirit with a body.

"go" to the unseen. That is a figure of speech. It just become
non-existent. Consider a light bulb. The bulb is the body, the
electricity going into the light bulb is the spirit. Continued...
I am a spiritual seeker, just like you. I have sampled the religious
institutions of humans and found them unable to contain the greatness of
God. All my life, I have had deep questions about God and my
relationship to Him: Why am I here? Why is there so much evil in the
world? Is the universe coming to an end? What will happen to my
unbelieving loved ones after they die? How important is it to attend a
church? I didnít find answers in church. In fact, most of the churches I
attended or visited didn't even want to hear the questions. Read more...
QUIT CHURCH WITHOUT QUITTING GOD
Why Going to church today is unbiblical, un-Christlike, and spiritually
risky "Confronting hypocrisy, contradiction, and cult overtones in
modern-day Christianity head-on, Zender raises serious criticisms without
renouncing true faith. A truly fascinating book."
-Michael J. Carson, The Midwest
Revised from original edition
"Zender's conversational writing style turns discus- sion about strict
religious dogma into a fun-filled frolic. Although vehemently spiritual, he
is the Robin Williams of the roadside tent revival.
