Part 3: Final thoughts and responses to Come Sunday/Carlton Pearson
In our previous shows I provided biblical and philosophical responses to the points raised by Pearson in the movie Come Sunday, interviews, and from his website. In this episode we continue addressing his specific heretical claims and giving tips as to how we might go about helping someone like Pearson to think through difficult questions and challenge heretical ideas with logic and sound biblical teaching.
As I said before, In the same way that a viral infection left untreated can lead to serious physical consequences, erroneous ideas can infect our minds and hearts in such a way that we find ourselves unable to walk rightly with God. For that reason, we must keep our hearts with all diligence (Proverbs 4:23) as we contend against lies that are circulating in society and causing people to stumble. So Let's get it!!!
Responding to Pearson’s claim that Jesus has saved everyone and everyone is going to “Heaven”.
Answering the question: “How can a loving God send people to hell?”

Answering the question: “What about people who live evil and then come to Christ at very end of their lives? If they go to ‘Heaven’ how is that fair?”
