Yes, it has. But, some religions consider heaven to be a certain place, location, while other religions, that stayed true to their original teachings - like Buddhism, consider heaven to be a certain state of being. If you picture it, every religion does have it's own heaven, but if you think in terms of certain states of being, then religions have a common heaven, a state of peace and harmony is common to all as a supreme goal.
My religion tells me that God is Love. Most concepts of heaven suggest some sort of communion with God. So heaven to me is a state of pure Love. Any interferance with Love is less than heaven. I think every religion has a reference to a state of being that exists without distraction from Love. So I reckon it would only be that good if we shared it.
I have seen heaven. For every good person qualifying for heaven, there is only one world of heaven. And it is unlimitedly vast.
Maybe you have seen the heaven your Subconscious Mind has believed to exist, since we live through the Subconscious Phase of Mind and every thought, idea, experience is recorded in that phase of mind. That is the only way you could have seen it.
Bradley: no earthly teachings can relate to the experience of seeing heaven unless you have done so. I too have seen where we came from and where we will go. I died at the age of 7, was revived and could not have 'dreamed' so elaborately.
Heaven and Hell is in the mind, when a mortal feels pain ang terrible grief for a prolonged period - it is 'like Hell' and so is 'like Heaven' when tumultously exultant about something nice...
Religion is a marked path for the mind-ready followers to take their journey slowly but surely towards spiritualism...religion is a collective thought of a particular mass of society with similar beliefs and has nothing to do with Heaven or Hell specifically...it is the choice a mortal makes...and depending on the 'good' or 'bad' choice the mortal gets his bagful of karma which can either make his life positive or negative...
Heaven is not up in the sky on the clouds...God/s is/are not waiting in 'Heaven' to reward you; nor is Satan waiting in the core of the Earth to fry you in hot oil or whatever...everything is here on the Earth for every religion follower - the good, bad and the ugly... Everything is based on our karma regardless of caste, color, class, creed...
Consider this, when we share the same Earth, breathe in the same air, hv the same color of blood etc, then why would our Gods not hv given us diff planets to live on if we were meant to go to a diff Heaven/Hell aft death?? Same creater, diff names...
There are many that don't believe in heaven. Scientology for instance believes in reincarnation, as do some new age philosophies. Many religions believe in different types of heaven, or some sort of afterlife, but not heaven. Catholics of course believe in purgatory.
I believe in heaven as defined in the Bible. A place where all who call Christ Lord and Savior will spend eternity with Him. Randy Alcorn wrote a wonderful book called Heaven. He researched the Bible for 25 years to write the book.
Hope that helps.
Jesus said in the Gospel to his disciples "The kingdom of heaven or of God is within you". Therefore the kingdom of heaven lies withing the human soul. St. Paul the Apostle of Christ said to his ministry of Christians, "Don't you know that you are the temple of God's own Spirit?"
yes...every religion has its won definition of heaven....
Yes. There are lots of different heavens up in the sky; one for every religion. I'm thinking of starting my own religion in order that I get my own heaven up there. Some of them are really crowded, you know, especially the old ones.
When you I think about it I would say all religions have an idea of a better life after this life. Even the people who believe in reincarnation believe that if they are really god this life then they would have a better existence next life. They do not know how good or how long it will last. However, that better place is heaven for some of those type of people. Most religions do have a version of heaven and many of them are different. As a matter of fact there are many different versions of heaven because theor are so many people on the planet.
