Anyone can see it: we’re captivated by the idea of eternity. No generation or culture can resist its draw. And some part of you already knows this, doesn’t it? It’s the reason you picked up this book. God created us with eternity in our hearts because this life is merely a glimpse of what’s to come. But what do we know about eternity? Is there more to it than pitchforks and harps? And if so, is any of it relevant to the life we’re living now? In Driven by Eternity, best-selling author John Bevere uses an eye-opening allegory and extensive Scripture to paint a vivid picture of the way our lives on earth shape our eternal existence. The truth is, our response to the cross doesn’t just determine where we’ll spend eternity. It also determines how we’ll spend it. Life beyond that final breath isn’t just about heaven or hell―it’s much more wonderful than that.
- Amazing book!
I've listened to this and Affabel and both are amazing books. It is extremely challenging because it has you really evaluate and look at your heart. Bevere talks about walking away from God yourself, not something or someone taking you from God. There is a ton of scripture to back up everything he is saying in the book. Read it for yourself. Remember: Don't throw the baby out with the bath water. It's a perspective thing, not a reformed or Armenian theology thing. The bible doesn't work within a theology.
- Don't read this book unless you enjoy being in fear of God and having a sin consciousness.
This book should be more accurately called DRIVEN BY WORKS because people who believe you can lose your salvation believe in works based salvation which is contrary to Scripture. John 10:27-29 says that nobody can pluck us out of the hand of God, but John Bevere like many other works based theologists adds an exception. "You can walk away," they say. "You can cast yourself out," they say. If it says no man or no woman that means no man or no woman, and nobody has the right to add to Scripture. If you are a clingon from Star Trek then I suppose you could lose your salvation, but since you are reading this I doubt that's true. I would also advise John Bevere to read Revelation 22:19 because he will have to deal with the consequences of adding to Scripture just like the Mormons and many other works based theologists. Jesus is the only way, it's not you or me, and it is not certainly this man who gets up every day like you do and puts his clothes on the same way that you do. For people tempted to elevate this book I leave you with this final thought. Did John Bevere die on a cross shedding his blood for your sins, was he buried, and did he rise from the grave on the third day? You be the judge.
