Why Should You Believe In Heaven/Hell

Updated on August 26, 2014

Heaven and Hell Picture

What is Heaven/Hell

Heaven and Hell are probably the most famous or infamous places known to man! Heaven is of course the best place possible, according to religions. It is also believed that God and Jesus live in Heaven, in most religions around the world that believe in heaven say that you have to obey the rules of the religion to gain any chance of entry. Hell is were the Devil lives and will only give you eternal suffering and burning. According to religions you go to hell if you disobey the religion or go against something that the religion has said is wrong! Hell is meant to be feared but recently scientists have claimed that places like Heaven and Hell do not exist, people now like to almost joke around with the fact hat they'll go to hell. However I believe that the fear of Hell will live on in the thoughts of people. Of course Heaven is there for loved and what most people want to go to when they die. Many people would like to go to heaven and live in happiness and delight for the rest of eternity.

However is this a good thing?

Why should you believe in Heaven?

Why should you believe in Heaven? My answer, why not? It may seem like a bit of a side step answering a question with another question but is there really any harm in believing in Heaven. Now some of you might say "But extremists do things to please their god surely in they do things like bombings to go to heaven" this is only true in their view! If you could comment bellow on any Legal Religion that clearly state in any holy texts/descriptions of heaven that encourages murder? Extremists use their religion as a Smoke Screen not as a way to get into heaven

Why you should believe in hell

Why should you believe in hell. I have read some hubs that say hell is the biggest mistake in religion, however I have a counter argument that hell is not just feared by people and then those people follow cults to not go to hell. It is religion's way of saying that sins are punished when you die as well as live so redeem your self now or feel eternal pain and suffering but God would not want people to suffer so he gets to get sinners to redeem them selves willingly after being in prison, although this unfortunately is not always the case but if people use it to control people then they will go to hell for controlling other people against their will.
