  • I don't believe in Heaven in the Christian form. However I tend to translate "heaven" as a "positive afterlife destination" or "higher realm" which I do believe in. To get to that higher realm I believe it takes an enlightened spirit, which is only attainable by living multiple lives and learning each lesson which needs to be learned...

  • IF there is a God and IF there is a requirement for getting into a heaven I believe it is to be a good, decent, person who cares deeply for others.

  • Nothing. We are His, and whether we are constantly faithful or like the prodigal son, I believe we all return to Him and are all unconditionally loved and favored by Him.

  • I don't believe in a literal Heaven, but if I did, then Jesus said to "Love God" and "Love your neighbors" to attain eternal life. Later he also said we should love our enemies as well.

  • That being said, I do believe that we all eventually reach a kind of spiritual maturity by the time we enter this heaven or afterlife ;)

  • That an omnipotent being would "require" anything, is contradictory, imo. Requirement suggests lack. Lack, is the antithesis to omnipotence.
