Is there a Heaven or Hell?
(Nampa, Boise, ID)
Hi. I happened to think of something a while back. I have a question that maybe Murray could answer.
All my life, in churches, Bible study, so on and so forth I've heard of two realms in the after life. Heaven where everything is peaceful and filled with love, or Hell, where one is tortured, suffering, in pain and agony forever. What about suicide? One person says "Commit suicide for ANYTHING you go STRAIGHT to hell!" another person says "They will go to heaven. Their life was pure hell to begin with. They were already suffering enough, and were tortured and tormented into this. Why should they continue to suffer?"-In othr words, Hell may only be capable of existing on the physical plane...
My questions on this were 'how could such a loving God (or as loving as we say to be in the Bible) condemn any of his children to eternal torment if he "loves" us so much?' To bring up the fact that pain is a warning signal given off by the brain to tell it the physical body has been damaged. 'How can there be pain if the physical brain is not functioning?'
My question I have to ask you to ask Murray is this: 'is there heaven, hell, or something else?'
