Heaven and Hell

The possibility of a "heaven" can be very attractive.

We see heaven as that place where all fear and worry is replaced by... well we are not sure what, but it's bound to be better than fear, worry, doubt, insecurity, and all the other emotions that make this life difficult.

But there's often a catch with many religions. In order to qualify for heaven, we must follow certain rules. And even worse... if we don't follow the rules we could end up in a place that is very undesirable. Most religious views of hell don't paint a very pretty picture. It sounds like it could be worse than life.

So for our religion to help us with our fear of death, we have to roll the dice, and take on a new possibility... hell. Now our fear of death is replaced with a "fear of hell." What have we gained?

So often we continue looking for another solution... another belief system that can help us overcome our fear.

Our search continues, and the path seems longer. Our fear of death pushes us on. Just like doubt it forces us to seek the truth, and explore other religions and ourselves.

But still the questions go on, so we keep looking.

"Everybody is dying.  From the moment we are born, we start to die.  Death is the most democratic experience in life, for we all participate in it."


                       Billy Graham




I want to go to Heaven! 

How do I get there? 

Judaism?  Buddhism?  Hinduism?  Christianity?  Islam?

One interesting aspect ....

The famous psychologist Carl Jung (CJ Jung Institute, Zurich & New York) was quoted as saying that he never had a patient, man or woman, over 40 whose problems did not root-back to fear of approaching death.

Another interesting aspect ....

Through my reading and study and conversations, the very worst fears of humankind are death and eternal lostness.  It is not where we came from, or why we are here -- it is the absolute fear of dying, and not going to Heaven!

The attractive aspect of this book is that it is succinct ....

It is succinct, and gets to the core issues, the key questions. You do not have to read the 'entire library' to understand the differences among the religions.

As to the understandable aspects of this book:

The vast majority of people do not ever attend either Church or Temple or Mosque or Synagogue, but they still think, and worry, about this stuff, this subject. 

Why?  The book has an understandable answer to this understandable question.

Further, this book makes it simple: it ask the same questions of each religion as to its beliefs and teachings.  What do they teach as to a Creator?  The origin of the universe, our planet Earth?  The origin of humankind?  The origin of evil and suffering?  A messiah?  About reconciling with God?  Each religion's role, their purpose?

Fear of Death

Once God created man and woman, he gave them free will; meaning they could make choices including making the choice to disobey God.
