Maybe you've experienced or witnessed this scenario:
Someone dies. In response someone says, “No need to mourn, after all they’re in a better place!” Because after all, Paul himself said “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” (Phil. 1:21)
Over the past few weeks we've been exploring key questions and themes surrounding Paul's Philippians letter with Cohick as our guide. (If you missed them, see post 1 and post 2.) And today she explains some misconceptions surrounding the meaning of this well-known verse.
Watch Cohick’s video, because she notes a crucial contextual piece that negates some of the popular interpretations of Paul’s saying. Rather than downplaying the importance and reality of grief, Paul acknowledges it.
