The Good Place

People have been wrestling for years with the question of who goes to heaven and who goes to hell. On the TV show The Good Place, there is no heaven or hell. There is the Good Place and the Bad Place, and their answer to the question is that good people go to the Good Place and bad people go to the Bad Place. But the way that gets lived out on the show makes for an interesting dynamic between good and bad.

 

Sort of like the Jacob and Esau story from Genesis. Pastor Kate dives into how God seems to play with our understanding of what is good and bad and who is rewarded and punished for their behavior.

Accompanying Scripture:
Genesis 27:1-4, 15-23
