Exploring Hope Podcast: Do babies go to heaven when they die?

This episode of Exploring Hope Podcast tackles the very sobering and solemn topic of the fate of infants and young children when they pass away. Do they go to heaven? Of course, we all immediately desire that the answer is yes, and we hope, pray, and believe that is the case for those who die so young that they never were able to respond to the Gospel. But do we have any biblical warrant for believing this? Is our emotional response indicative of the truth, or is it in spite of the truth of the bible? Dr. John Hammett, Professor of Theology at SEBTS, sits down with Dr. Dew to discuss the theological and scriptural evidences for this claim. Tune in!

Exploring Hope Podcast: What is the “Image of God”?

This week on the Exploring Hope Podcast, Dr. Dew sits down with Dr. John Hammett to ask him about the Image of God. Genesis 1:26-27 tells us that, unlike the rest of creation, God created us in His own image. This “Imago Dei”has been debated by various theologians over the centuries. What exactly does this mean, and how does it separates us from animals? In what way do we reflect God as image bearers? Is it reason? Is it consciousness? Is it relationship with God? Tune in as Dr. Hammett tackles this important question and helps us think it through.
