Will Our Pets Be in Heaven? (And Other Questions)

From time to time, we receive questions from listeners and readers about various topics of theology and biblical interpretation. And while we always do our best to provide responses to those questions on an individual basis, some of them are interesting enough (and important enough) that we wanted to discuss them publicly.

On this episode of the podcast, we explore the following questions, most of which were recently asked of us personally:

  • Will we see our pets in heaven?
  • Can you be a Christian and still believe in dinosaurs?
  • Should Christians avoid Reiki, healing crystals, or yoga?
  • Why do many historically Black churches refer to the pastor’s wife as First Lady?
  • Is Hell real?
  • How are we to understand Old Testament passages that describe magicians who draw power from ‘other gods’?
