Josh Butler :: What has influenced culture’s understanding of heaven?

  • “Gnosticism was kind of this idea…that salvation is about God whisking us out of earth and up into heaven,” answers Josh Butler, Pastor of Global Outreach at Imago Dei in Portland, OR, “but the early Church fought tooth and nail against that.” In the modern era, Christians have bought into the storyline that our hope is in an abstract heaven rather than in Christ and His redemption of this earth. But Jesus came in physical body to earth and then through His resurrection God began the process of healing earth and making it new.
