We've compiled this week's best, Matt Slick's Top Six. Number six. I don't know if this is in the Bible. I was listening to David Jeremiah. He was mentioning our resurrected body. He said that we will eat. We won't need food. We won't need water.
Yeah, most probably. We do these things in our physical body now to sustain the energy of our body. But in the resurrection, the implication is that God will be our source. We won't need to eat. So some speculate that we can eat. But then think about that.
If we can eat in our resurrected bodies, do we have to use a restroom? I don't know. Yeah. Is it speculative?
Yeah, it's very speculative. I just need to get at that. Number five. Do you theorize that race doesn't matter after we're glorified? It doesn't matter now. But also after glorified.
Yeah, it shouldn't matter now. And there's only one race, the human race. We just have different sizes, shapes, and colors. And we're going to be glorified bodies in the same bodies we died in, but they'll be glorified. And Jesus retained his crucifixion wounds. They recognized him. So there you go.
Right. So if it doesn't necessarily matter, is it safe to say that he was a Middle Eastern Jew? Shouldn't he say that he still is? Yeah, he was a Middle Eastern Jew. And I would say he still is in that body type and skin complexion, whatever it was back then. But he wasn't the blonde-haired, blue-eyed, Caucasian surfer dude dressed in a woman's nightgown. That's just so often depicted.
Number four. In fact, there's a video I saw once. It was on TV. What would Jesus possibly have looked like?
And they really went through and did the genetics and the appearance of that time and that place, the best of their ability, descriptions of the Bible. And he's not particularly a good-looking guy. His darker skin than the standard white guy kind of thing, but not black guy. Just kind of in between the Arab kind of a look, a little bit lighter and had dark, curly hair and a close beard.
That's how they presented him. That's fine. I don't care. But you know, the Jews today, the Jews today, for the most part, just look pretty standard Caucasian. So I don't know how that works.
Number three. If time travel were to ever become possible, do you think that would violate God's eternal divine decree? No. If it were possible, the only reason it'd be possible is by God's decree. So it couldn't be against his decree because he could decree that it exists. All events that can occur, time travel theoretically permitted by God, would only be possible by God's decree.
So there you go. Wouldn't it be problematic, though, if you're jumping out of a hypothetical timeline and into a different one, making one of them counterfactual timeline that didn't actually happen, that God decreed and then didn't decree? But it did actually happen. And then it became warped out so that it didn't happen in a different timeline. But in another one, it did.
It was actualized by God's decree. Interesting. Number two. Have you ever heard of St. Patrick's Purgatory? No. St. Patrick's Purgatory? Wow.
Yeah. Which is a island in the Republic of Ireland. And on this island, they had this Catholic cathedral. They believe that Christ showed St. Patrick a cave. And it's sometimes referred to as a pit or a well on the island. And it was believed that this was an entrance to purgatory.
And what they teach here at this particular Catholic church, they teach that if you take a pilgrimage to this place and you complete the pilgrimage three times in your life, you will never go to hell. Wow. That's a load of crud. Number one.
It is whacked. Superstition. Yeah. If you make a pilgrimage, you don't go to hell.
What? Oh, so you don't need Jesus, you know, and faith and trust in Christ. Well, since there's no such thing as purgatory anyway, it's not in the Bible.
I mean, it's a doubly wrong. Wow. That's interesting, though. Never heard of it. Now I've heard of it.
In fact, when I was in Turkey four years ago or so, we did a tour from Turkey and also in Israel. We went to a certain place where there's supposed to be caves that according to there lead to hell. In fact, this place, if I remember correctly, I forgot the name of it. There's sulfur that comes out. You can actually die from it, you know, a volcanic, whatever it is. And so people, you know, when they're naked, they can die. Oh, it must be bad. It must be hell.
It's just superstition. Y'all come back now. I always trust a guy named Matt Slick on the radio. We hope you've enjoyed this episode of Matt Slick's Top Six. For more on Matt and his live syndicated call-in radio show, go to truthnetwork.com.
