6: What *really* happens after we die?

EPISODE: 6

What *really* happens after we die?

with Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit

Australian society continues to have a “cartoon-like” understanding of heaven and hell, so Megan and Michael try to uncover what we do know from the Bible about the afterlife, and what remains a mystery. Things get highly personal when Megan shares about her miscarriage on Good Friday, before the pair examines a good response to death and suffering.

In For Argument’s Sake, Megan and Michael delve into the depths of confusion about what happens after death. They note that most Christians – well, most people actually – are pretty fuzzy on this topic. It was politicians answering Greg Sheridan’s questions on what happens when we die, for his book God is Good For You, that prompted Megan and Michael to explore this more.

Both agree that our culture continues to have a “cartoon-like” understanding of heaven and hell, and they try to uncover what we do know from the Bible about the afterlife, and what remains a mystery.

Then, in the Secret Life of Us, Megan and Michael escape from the theoretical and delve into their personal experiences with death and grief. “This is where the rubber hits the road in living the Christian life, with these experiences of grief,” says Michael.

In this segment, Megan shares about her miscarriage on Good Friday and experiences of suffering through depression. Megan and Michael grapple with the “sadness” and “badness” of death, and examine what a good response to death and suffering might look like.

Continuing the afterlife theme, on Marg and Dave, our dynamic duo check out the super popular Netflix series The Good Place. Warning: spoilers!

WHAT IS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT?

Less aggro, more conversation.

Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.

There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
