    I believe in both because I believe in the Holy Bible.  God is great, Christ is hope and there is a place for the justified by the free gift of grace and a place for the unjust according to God.

    Yes. I do believe its existence though one may find hard to prove. I am a believer of supernatural being. Sometimes it is not just seeing is believing but the six sense in you telling that it does exist.

    This whole life is a test. One who does good deeds will definitely have good results in the form of heaven and those with bad deeds will have hell on the day of judgement. God has given the man option to choose either way he likes. If he chooses the right path and spends his life as God has asked, he will definitely have reward for that. If he chooses otherwise, he will have the result as he did. Everyone is free tho choose whatever he likes but he will be answerable for whatever he does.

      If you believe in the Bible (and I don't know if you do) but it tells us deeds alone are not the way to heaven.  Christ is the only way to heaven according to God's Word.  You are right about the free will!

    when i was young, we were taught by the nuns that heaven and hell exists. If you do bad, you will be tortured in hell when you die, live in paradise with God when you do good deeds

    It's interesting that for the early Hebrews they had no concept of an afterlife, only the prospect of sleeping with their fathers, both the wicked and the righteous sharing the same fate. Over time belief in the afterlife evolved and concepts of judgement were introduced as people needed the security that the good and the bad must receive a reward or punishment in order to make sense of the World.

    Jews today have no concept of hell and indeed hell is actually a pagan ideology assimilated by the medieval church to keep people in obedience. Unfortunately Christians today would rather believe their pastors and flawed English translations of the bible rather than study the evolution of church doctrine and the history of its beliefs.

    The concept of hell is morally repugnant and is in direct contradiction to the definition of judgement and loving ones enemies. Hell is a human invention.
