  • Yes I do, But I also think the population of hell is ZERO right now. No one is there till Jesus judges us and puts us there.

  • If you believe in one, isn't it only right to believe in the other ?

  • If you want to call earth Hell. Then yes. Otherwise, no. I do believe in an afterlife and I suppose you could call it either one. Depending on your pov.

  • I believe, that heaven is whatever each person as an individual believes it is. For one person, heaven may be up in sky above the clouds with God and all of their loved ones surrounding them. And for another it may be their favorite, most relaxing, memorable beautiful place here on earth. Same thing with Hell. I think it is whatever YOU believe it is. And that will be where you spend your afterlife. Either your heaven or your Hell, depending on what kind of a person you chose to be here on earth.

  • Yes and No. I do not believe in either in the Christian senses of the words. I do however believe in levels to reality and the spirit world. I believe there are higher realms (realms of enlightenment) and lower realms... Higher realms could easily be equated with the Christian Heaven and Lower with the Christian Hell. However, I do not believe that these Lower realms are generally somewhere we will ever experience. Our spirits are meant to achieve enlightenment through life lessons, not to become lesser than they are.

  • No, I don't believe in a literal Heaven or Hell. I do believe that metaphorically we can create our own 'Heaven' or 'Hell' for ourselves--here and now.
