Do pets go to heaven when they die? Do dogs, cats, horses, politicians, or any animal have souls?
Could you support your answer in a hub or even here?
If one believes in reincarnation, they could easily say that they are merely spiritual vessels of a lower rank, with politicians being one of the lowest forms; ha! ...And some people actually wonder why the dolphins often laugh at us poor humanoids!
Well said, but I dare you to name a life form that is lower than a politician.
Uh, uh, a late-night televangelist on the BET channel? LOL!
Well, I can't, but I reckon they are getting fairly close to amoebas, nearly have the same amount of brain cells.
Dang it! Darn it! Dab nab it! You win! You found a lower -human- life form. You win some kind of No Prize.
Bacteri- no, not really.
Probably, but I have my doubts about politicians. Do they even deserve to be included in the same group as pets, nah not that loveable.
i don't know why do chinese believe that dogs and cats have nine lives. So, how can they go to heaven if they keep reincarnate? I think animals who had saved someone or another animal lives should or ought go to heaven. I hope and pray that the honey bear mom and cub that was caught and tortured, died, had gone to heaven. Saw an article in HP a couple of months ago. pitiful and heart breaking.
If really hope, that at least some, animals get to go to heaven.
Actually, only cats have nine lives. They have a little punchcard with nine dots, so that each time they die and go up to the Gates of Heaven, God takes out his hole puncher and punches it once, then the cat is reincarnated.
JK! This is all a myth.
If you hadn't put politician on the list, I would have answered that the soul is the life essense of the animal and returns to its origin, but I'm not sure politicians have souls. I don't know what gives them life. I guess there are good souls and bad souls and they return to their origins. So I guess that's my answer as to where politicians go when they die.
I wrote a hub on this based on a Christian perspective using theological arguments. I believe I will see my pets in heaven. Whoo Hoo!!!
I will have to check your hub out, and I thank you for your answer.
I disagree. Animals do not have souls, if they did God would put them on an equal level as human, and they would be equally intelligent as humans.
I can't speak for politicians, but I already covered my take on the others in a hub
http://wychic.hubpages.com/hub/Determin … Have-Souls
No, for animals like dogs have no spirit only human has. So when they die they totally dies.
I hope that your wrong, but i thank you for your answer.
I think they sung a song about that once, and it was entitled "Who let the dogs out?," Ha!
Just curious, Ken. Where do you get your belief that animals do not have souls? They are living breathing spirits just the same as humans. What would be the source of their life essence if they have no souls?
pets does not go to heaven when they die. they have souls , but they does not go to heaven.
This is a question, like any dealing with the position of eternal life, must be a person's own personal belief and faith. The proof of this is difficult or impossible to actually bring about to people through any means other than Biblical faith. Politicians are people and for them it comes down to their own personal faith through christian or other religious beliefs as to whether they will stand before God. I however am a christian and personally do believe that not only do pets but all animals do have a soul and do go to heaven upon the ending of their lives upon this earth. Animals are innocent of sin,giving their life blood from the first few moments of creation for the atonement of the the evil that the chosen of God placed upon this earth. Now this fact is true not only in christian religion but in all religions as animals are sacrificed to appease the god or gods for the evils of men. If any beings upon this planet have souls it is animals for they have done nothing to bring destruction to their fellows. They do not pollute nor wage war upon their fellow creatures never have they taken one or the other and placed them in chains to build societies to rule over another. Yes, heaven is filled with them and if justice is true those of us who go there will serve them as they served us.
Haha, insulting politicians. No, animals do not have mortal souls. Only humans have mortal souls. Animals have a different kind of soul, and do not go to heaven. So yes, the cartoon is wrong. If you really want a long and detailed explanation of this, i can give it, but i don't think it is necessary if you understand it.
So no, Rover and Max and Mr. Woofikins do not have souls.
No souls needed for those of the Christian faith. God will return all of His creation back to Himself in the New Heaven. The whole Bible is a story of creation's (not just man's) redemption. I have a hub that covers this. No room here for more!
No actually it states in the Bible that all people have souls.
Yes, people have souls, but animals do not need souls for heaven. They are a part of creation and are immediately drawn into the New Heaven because they are innocent from the Fall. We humans, however, are not innocent.
But it is not a body that goes to heaven, but a soul. Soulless entities do not go to heaven.
Then how do the lion and the lamb get there? God is capable of doing anything, including bringing His creation back to him. It's the creatures capable of knowing they have fallen that need souls. The rest do not. Read my hub. No room to expla
No animals = no heaven, IMO. For me, it would not be heaven if there were no animals. In fact, I do believe that's actually the other place...

With all of the political hidden agenda, we never truly know what politicians have our best interest in mind. Should all politicians be required to take lie detector tests before and during office?

There has been such a heated discussion about pets when they pass. I am curious, do you believe all animals go to heaven or do you believe in something else? When our beloved Cocker Spaniel passed away last year, I believe he went to heaven and I also believe he had his own individual soul. What...

How do honest people suddenly turn dishonest when they go into politics?

Do you contend that politics is a game and that the average politician whether Republican orDemocrat cares nothing at all about his/her constituents but only his/her self-aggrandizement, celebrity, and next career move?

Some thoughts:No campaign contributions allowed all campaigns are funded by a tiny flat tax every party receives a given amount to publicize their views so long as they can get say 50 000 party members. Yearly full IRS audit for all major elected officials.A limit on legal fees for any court case...
