This discussion isn't designed to upset or offend anyone and it's just light hearted! Ok, so does anyone know how many steps to heaven there are? If there is a Heaven and Hell when we die, and those of us that have been good and sinless will go to Heaven but how do we get there, do we climb the steps to the pearly gates and what about those who find climbing stairs difficult? How many steps are there? are there just 3 steps to heaven? According to Eddie Cochran? Or are there 39 steps? Or is there a continuous staircase and for those that manage to get to the top are worthy of being let inside the gates? And those that can't manage to get to the top what then? Climb back down again or rest and continue? Or is there an escalator now that would be more sensible, or even a lift? Or are those that are priviledged get wings to fly upwards? And how do we know the wings will fit? I mean those of us who have a few extra pounds will need reinforced wings surely? And for hell, is there an escalator down? Or are there steps down, what if we don't want to go downstairs? But then again isn't climbing downstairs easier than going upstairs, so given the choice most of us would want to go downstairs rather than up? And is there a separate entrance for those of us who want reincarnation? If it's not upstairs or down, then is it on the same level, a huge corridor where we traverse down to get into the reincarnation department? So what is your take on this? Where do we go when we die, upstairs, downstairs or along the corridor? Disclaimer: This is NOT meant to Offend any one and so please don't take offence!

Hi there wolfie34 Boy are you trying to decrease your star rating or what? Haha just kidding I always thought there were 10 steps to Heaven or 9 can't remember haha. Ok so what about Hell? Are there any steps or is it like a trap door that is released from under your feet and you plumit to the dark depths of a firey Hell? I too am not trying to offend anyone by this, oh dear look what you have done to me wolfie!! If my star rating goes down I am blaming you!!

Then we can be red stars together! Ok I have broad shoulders I can take it. I did think long and hard about posting this discussion and thought what the hell (pun intended) go for it, you only live once! Or twice if you are into that ;0) I'll take my punishment if you do drop (pun intended again!)

First, let me say that my friends and family know I do not like heat, sun, etc. I even suffer too much from such things as humidity. Therefore....the devil doesn't want me for fear I would blow out all his furnaces LOL As for heaven? steps or no steps, do any of us really "earn our wings"? I'm hoping to reincarnate into a kitty kat, easy life, body rubs every day, fed without cooking, no housework, no shopping, and sleep whenever I want to...now THAT's life!

His, sis, let me take your hand and we'll find the reincarnation department together, I want to be a dolphin or a wolf, make sure your owners don't want to 'have you done' LOL! I too hate the heat so that option is definitely out for me ;0)

Hi, wolfie. This is just opinion, like you said not to offend anybody. Description of hell : Hot, smell sulfury , people ofter refer hell as fall down, under. Think about what actually under the ground, sea of sulfury magma, deep inside of our earth. Desciption of heaven : First time it said God create this Eden or heaven, between 2 rivers, surprisingly these 2 rivers still exsist on earth. When God kicked Adam and Eve, from eden, heaven disappeared. ( Or is it? ) Or maybe we just can't see it with human eyes? Hahahaa...Maybe Heaven and Hell is not far away..not up high in the sky. and Hell, not far below from our feet too.

Or Hell could be closer than we think, we could be living in hell! and we are ready to die we move onto Heaven. Always been a great mystery to me and kind of fascinating too, the final piece of the human puzzle we call life!

I don't think the Bible stipulates how many steps there are to Heaven, but, it does talk about the twelve levels of Heaven. Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

I think the last time I read the bible was when I was twelve or thirteen my friend, I vaguely remember bits of it and certainly don't have an indepth knowledge of it. Mind you I quit faith when I was 15 years old and I am not religious at all. But still curious if that makes sense.

Hi wolfie, Since our spiritual body is only energy, it shouldn't be any more difficult to climb stairs than to go down them lol! I think most people are just happy not to have to drag around this physical body anymore. Blessings.

That's a good point, say goodbye to your curves, your excess body fat and your features you don't like because you can leave it all behind! Comforting thought.

Ahhh! You're killing me... But what of the source of spirit that lives in you and me? Lifted like a light gas or heated ash lifting off into the atmosphere and beyond. Or for those evil forces drawn down into nothing never to exist again like being sucked into a vacuum a deep dark abyss a hole that won't release you with pressures that eliminate all you once existed to be as you cross over the event horizon you know in an instant all you ever were ceases to exist, you're gone... Yet the good remain and how did they get to be good? They knew how to ask! They become enlightened.

ah, yes the idea of lifting or being drawn seems to fit. We don't always agree in our beliefs, but you write beautifully and I appreciate your insights.

I believe or atleast i heard someone say that the steps to heaven are seven and they are all "humility" but the steps to hell are in my opinion just one: Pride. I also believe when we die we will have a different body that will be light and another thing is one does'nt have to do anything to get to his deserved place, he will be sent to hell no matter how much he resists, but the people who are to go to heaven will be taken there without them having to even lift a finger.

I think there is only one step to heaven. that is a mans true life and its sinciarity. heven and hell are the imaginations of mind's who lived past .the man is bee ruled according to there sins and goods.

Hello wolfie. I don't think that we will walk to the heaven step by step. As we die, it is our soul left that flies straight up to the heaven. This is what I can imagine. Thank you for the discussion, wolfie.

I think that we will get fly. Do we get to the heaven or hell or reincarnation it's up to us when we are still in the world. I hope we can fly to the heaven not walk.

I think that you are probably like casper when it is time to go up to heaven. I know that when you die you spirit leaves you body and it probably floats up there and I don't think it takes that long to get there so you probably won't get winded on your way up to the pearly gates.
