Television's Electronic Tabernacle 25

Materialistic Heaven

Stephen enters heavenTelevision's electronic tabernacle presents viewers with a materialistic heaven on earth, here and now. According to them, One's sole purpose in life is to possess. There is nothing beyond death. Great care is taken to ensure that no one ever suggests an eternity or an afterlife. Also because there is no belief in sin, there is no need for a Savior, a judgment or even forgiveness.✞
