Kingdom of God (Part 1)

Kingdom of God
Kingdom of GodSteve Gregg

In this discussion, Steve Gregg delves into the complex and controversial topic of the Kingdom of God. While some believe in two gospels, he argues that the terms "Kingdom of God" and "Kingdom of Heaven" are used interchangeably in Scripture and do not necessarily refer to life after death. Rather, the Kingdom of God is expansive and inclusive, with a spiritual rather than political emphasis. Gregg references various biblical passages, including Isaiah 9 and Romans 9, to further support his interpretation of the Kingdom of God.
