"An overwhelming majority of Americans continue to believe that there is life after death and that heaven and hell exist," according to a Barna Research Group poll. But what people actually believe about Heaven and Hell varies widely. A Barna spokesman said, "They're cutting and pasting religious views from a variety of different sources--television, movies, conversations with their friends." The result is a highly subjective theology of the afterlife, disconnected from the biblical doctrine of Heaven.
Question: Do you believe there is a heaven and a hell? Why or why not?
PS. All respectful comments are welcome--don't be shy about asking questions. And if you believe in the Bible, try to include a Bible verse that supports your comment. Also, if you're reading Heaven along with us, and want to comment about something else in Chapter 1, feel free to do that.
