Just what is meant by “heaven and hell”? Where are they and what are they all about?
I know the Bible makes some reference to what one would find if they existed, but it’s not very specific. So, when I find someone who claims to know something, I always read it.
The link below claims to know. He says we will find something we do not expect and it definitely is not about reliving relationships and experiences we had in our “first life”.
I regard such articles claiming to know about heaven and hell as part of the original propaganda used to control people. The Bible plays the old carrot and stick game with its readers. “Believe in me, you get heaven. Don’t and you get hell.”
The link doubles down on this. It says if you have had a happy marriage, you will not just have endless happy years together. Instead, you will have endless years of something unknown, but better.
His version is almost like the 30 virgins available to martyrs in Islam. It’s as cruel and controlling as well.
The concepts of living past death are so far fetched, it is no wonder they are not taking the world by storm. Instead, young people, especially, are skeptical and the majority not identifying with existing denominations.
So much better for the long term survival of humans on our planet would be belief we should devote our lives to making the world better for future generations, people other than ourselves.
