eddie-parrishBEDFORD, Tex. (BNc) — Yesterday, speaking to the Brown Trail congregation in the morning sermon, Eddie Parrish helped the hearers to think about what it will be like “Five Minutes After Death.”

Eddie based his lesson on Jesus’ story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16.

First, we will be conscious in another realm, he said. Second, we will know our eternal fate. Third, we will recognize others who are there, even those we’ve never met before. Fourth, we will remember.

While many are focusing on current events and physical and material concerns, sermons like Eddie’s serve an essential need to point people to eternity and face them with the need to prepare for it. No greater human need exists.
