  • If they don't believe in the Bible or Jesus they probably don't believe in Heaven either.

  • If I dont believe in the bible why would I believe the scripture you posted? It means nothing to me at this point in my life.

    I dont believe in heaven(or hell) anymore. I believe there is a waiting place, so to speak, before we are reborn or before we join with the divine. However, I wouldnt call it heaven as its not a permanent spot.

  • ReneeK: It's statements like that that just prove how little people know about other beliefs.

    No, I don't believe in the Bible as being "The word of God". I think it's a great spiritual book but not a steadfast rule book. I believe Jesus to be a great master and teacher but not "The Only Way". And yes, I absolutely KNOW that if I died today I would be going straight to heaven.

  • Jesus said that if any man comes any other way he is a thief and a robber. Don't be a thief and a robber. Just submit yourself unto him and obey.

  • jenettyshome...note that I said PROBABLY! Also, note that the person above you doesn't believe in the Bible, therefore doesn't believe in Heaven. It was a generalization. Sorry you misunderstood.

  • I can say i don't believe in organized religion. I also don't believe the bible word for word, it has been written and re-written making it less reliable by corrupt men wanting submission from its followers. Translations are lost and interpretations are easily miscued... Do I believe we started from something great... yes, is there a Jesus, I don't know. But to answer your question, no I do not believe in a heaven that only those that CLAIM to live by the bible out of fear will get in, and I don't believe in a fiery hell... I don't believe there is such a thing as an evil soul, I think we were all born pure and the world and its wicked ways screwed up that purity. I think the person and the soul are too different things and God will not punish the soul for the bodies actions. When we die I think the soul is set free and the body laid to rest.

  • Well, I don't believe in the bible as the word of God, because I don't believe in a God, so I can't believe Jesus is his son, if I don't believe in a God..

    soooo....since I don't believe in the above.. I dont believe in an after life either. I believe when you die, you die.. and that's it.
    so.. no I don't think I'm going to heaven or hell because I don't believe in there existance.

  • Agnostic answer:
    Well, maybe...I personally think of "heaven" as a wonderful place where we are at our happiest. I take a little from Buddhism and believe in reincarnation....and i think we can choose to come back to earth for our souls to learn more, or hang out in our original "home" for a while, if we even decide to go back to earth at all....

    I believe that whoever created me, gave me a questioning mind for a purpose. And that my creator wants me to lead a good life. I do not believe my creator has a set religion that i have to follow in order to find spiritual happiness. Thats one reason there are so many! It gives my free will the oppurtunity to explore my world and decide how i want to participate.

    And with my personal beliefs about the bible in general, I do not feel that jesus is the only way. Even if its printed in a book.

  • When I die, my body will cease to function and my consciousness will cease to exist.  There will be no heaven and there will be no hell.  I will go to my grave with happy memories of a life well lived,  loved and godless.


    BTW scripture means absolutely nothing!
