Guest Virginia Dawn Posted June 25, 2009 Share Posted June 25, 2009 (edited) This is something I've been pondering, but it is not a usual topic for casual conversation IRL. I know I could get a good variety of answers here. If you are religious, what does heaven mean to you? How do you visualize it? Do you take descriptions of an afterlife from religious literature literally or figuratively? I've asked a few people close to me what they think and I got different answers from each of them. My dad thinks Heaven will be a place where each of us has work to do that our life on earth prepared us for. A minister I know once mentioned that he thinks Christians will become part of God's spiritual army and war against forces of evil. Others have said it will be a place of perpetual singing God's praises. (So if we don't care for congregational singing on earth, we are in trouble) I've also read about people who believe that our heaven (or hell) is here on earth and we create it ourselves by our actions. If you don't mind replying... What is your theology of heaven? Edited June 25, 2009 by Virginia Dawn Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
