Chapter Twenty-Five Questions

Death, the Intermediate State, and Glorification

  1. Did you read the entire chapter?
  2. If God has appointed our time to die, why should we exercise, eat well, and generally take care of our bodies? How would you counsel a person who chose to “let themselves go” because death is a positive?
  3. How would you counsel a spouse whose husband went to eternal punishment?
  4. How do you think about your death?
  5. How have you prepared your family members for your death? What do you need to do in order to better prepare your family for your death?
  6. How would you counsel a person who believes they will only be perfected at death and, thus, growing in obedience in this life is not that important?
  7. How would you counsel a person who was obsessed with health and feared growing old? Use Scriptures.
