Personal Aside: The Theological Wonk Answerand Another One.
Are There Definite Locations for Heaven and Hell?
Frank Nofsinger has the right answer for this one: yes. Incidentally, Jesse Taylor answered yesterdays theological wonk question by saying that under Catholic rubric Old Testament prophets cannot follow the same course of canonization since their miracles were performed too early and cannot be verified. Wellokay but the real answer as contained in yesterdays web-site is that they are already saints and have been referred to as such. But thanks, Jesse and Im sorry to have neglected your answer yesterday.
The answer to this theological wonk question on the placement of heaven and hell is that Christ twice referred to heaven as a place in John 14:2-3. The original word is topos meaning dwelling place, abode, seat.
Now drum-roll please the third Theological Wonk question.
Question 3: Why Was Jesus Baptized?
Yes, why? And thats precisely what John the Baptist said to Him: I need to be baptized by you. And yet you are coming to me?
But He did. Why?
