I don't get it. Ok so you die, go to heaven, hang out with god and then what?
If you knew Who God is, you would not even ask that question. It is not hanging out, it is being with God. Then you can look at the alternative, die and go to Hell and hang out with Satan.
I thought God was too superior for mere mortals to know who He is. Are you saying YOU know who God is? Your knowledge must be astounding!
You know Satan too? And I suppose by making these claims, that you have been to heaven and hell. If you haven't, then you are merely talking about things which you have only imagined...and that is not healthy.
the BIBLE tells us of Gods nature. It informs us of who he is. Gods spirit inside us brings us closer to God. We know that God is
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith
we know HE is a parent and operates as a parent.
he has told us to give freely as he has freely given us.
We know pieces about afterlife
We know pieces about the spirit world that God lives in
We know how he operates
and all without travelling to heaven or hell.
If you have imagined that someone has been to heaven or hell, well, that just is not healthy.
Parents don't roast you for an eternity if you don't love and worship them. They don't drown you or send plagues if they get angry with your actions.
hanging out, Amen. Well stated.
The bible? You mean a book? Well how do you personally know for sure the bible is anything more than a fantasy? You don't, and it's pretty obvious that it is. Got anything else?
So you read a book, and you blindly believe everything that some unknown author wrote, and you think that somehow you have credibility.
This bible is only a book, like any other book. Writers of fiction use their imagination to concoct outlandish stories all the time. Just look at the Harry Potter series.
Can't I just die?
It's the same difference between life and death. There's a choice. Fools will choose death.
Nobody gets out of here alive. Don't delude yourself.
I don't know why you'd want to hang out with god either.. I haven't a clue who your talking about..
I'm a servant of "God"...
Oh. Your invisible friend! Aren't you a grown up yet?
Heaven has the best parties dude.
You so don't get what you are missing out on.
Really? That's not likely if you have read the bible. God's a bit of a prude.
Bliss, paradise, heaven.
We are all looking for ecstasy or happiness, the ultimate bliss lies in being one with god.
I guess your question reflects the kind of relationships you have in your life.
Sounds like you get bored with your friends real quick.
How about your wife/partner, if you have one? Is that your attitude to her? (or him).
I'm not giving a religious or scripture-based answer, though I know some of those.
As a child, I can remember thinking that there were so many wonderful, fascinating, interesting things to learn, see and do on this earth, that it would take several lifetimes to experience them all.
Projecting that out into the whole universe, I suppose it would take an eternity.
If you believe in heaven or an afterlife, you shouldn't expect to be bored in it. If you don't, you don't.
It's certainly a compelling idea on one level, but remember that much of what makes life interesting and enjoyable would be forbidden by God. So that would be kind of a downer... for all time...
And anyway, being in the presence of God is supposed to be the best experience possible, making every other possible experience about as interesting as watching paint dry.
try hell, god is boring and also god is creator of satan too...so we can imagine what god would be...hell is must better place than hanging out with someone like religious god...ego centric entity who kills at will and expects everyone to obey ...love is superficial and come with condition in case of god...try hell it is better place...
Haven't you heard the last line in all those stories?''''''''''''''''''''''''
They lived happily thereafter;;;;;;;;;;
They are thinking of dying happily ever after..... I don't think it works that way.
Discussion of the ages. face it, noone knows, we will all eventually find out. Until then, just keep wondering and arguing about it.

Why are there spirits roaming the earth? Does this means that there is no heaven or hell?

For as long as religion existed, there has always been the threat of torture in the afterlife (unless you subscribe to *insert religion here* and convert today!), but when you actually think about it and apply a single brain cell to the idea, it doesn't make any kind of sense at all. Given that I...

Why is it that all Christians seem to think if your not Christian, your Satans spawn?I've read the bible a great many times and I don't remember it saying anything about non Christians being Satan worshippers or Satan spawn. I don't even remember it saying that all Christians would go to heaven as...

Is it possible that our earth is actually hell?I have difficulty believing that there is a reason for our world being in the shape that it is in other than we are being tested. What if being banished to hell is not for an eternity, but for what we perceive a our lifetime, a place where we...

Do you believe non-religious people, who lead a good life, are still going to hell?One of my biggest frustrations with religion is the idea that, how you live your life is of no consequence if you do not accept god. For example, John Smith is a good christian man who helps people, obeys the law and...
