What About The Family Unit?

Answer by Jack Kelley

Q. If there are no marriages in heaven, where does that leave the family unit?  I lost a baby at 6 weeks old, How will she be in heaven? What about all the family reunions everyone looks forward to in heaven? Will we even be know as we are here?

A. The family unit as we know it on Earth will be replaced by the family of God in which we will literally be brothers and sisters with God as our Father (Romans 8:29).  Your baby will be there to greet you along with all the deceased believers of your family.  This is the family reunion people speak of.  They will be recognizable to you as you are to them. The Bible says we will know as we are known (1 Cor. 13:12) which among other things means we’ll know each other then just as God knows us now.

Eternal Rewards

One of the most commonly believed myths concerning the afterlife is the notion that, in Heaven, eternal life is our only reward. Everyone’s rank will be equal in God’s eyes. This monolithic view of Heaven has us spending a large portion of eternity sitting on clouds, strumming our harps and preening our new wings.

The Bible could not disagree more strongly with this definition of a communal Heaven. Paul, in Corinthians, said we will receive rewards according to the deeds we perform here on earth: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Cor. 5:10).
