Based on your life, the things you've done, or didn't mean to do, the person you've become. Where are you going when this life is over? And why do you think so?

I think we have to show the list of good and bad things which we did to someone who created us. According to that he may suggest a new life for us. Any way our life is not going to end in this earth. I believe in rebirth.

Yes, but part of the question was . . . "Why do you think so?"

Its simple "Nothing is created nor destroyed". So how could our eternal life will be destroyed. It must be changed into something. Our body decays and converts into sand. Like wise our life will be converted into something. Iam sure. But I dont know whats that "something"

Your life does not END. The only decision you get to make right now, is WHERE you will spend eternity.

I know this will probably get the Christians in an uproar but my soul will be off and onto its next human body to learn more of our universes lessons.

Hehehe, I'm not in an uproar. I guess part of my question was, how or why did you come to believe this way?

Well, to make a really long and drawn out story short enough... I was born and raised a devout catholic- church choir and all. Then I grew up- learned there were other beliefs and religions besides the one I now felt was forced upon me. I starting doing my own research and came to the only conclusion that fit me best. I cannot conform to any one religion- because they are man-made. I took what I felt was right from each belief I studied back to ancient times and am content with knowing that yes there is a divine power out there bigger than us all- but there is no need to fear it- fear was instilled by man. Instead I rejoice in feeling that the only thing eternal on this planet is the soul- living on beyond this body I now have.

I think it depends. If there is really a god and he doesn't have a sense of humor I am sure I will go to hell. If, on the other hand, there is a higher power and he/she is a upfront person then I could see myself going to a better place. I say this because i have never been a church goer and am a agnostic.

So as an agnostic you would believe that the truth of God or any deity is unattainable? I'm just wondering though, about that little word "if." If God exists you will go to hell. Ouch! Why take that chance? Ever asked God Himself if He exists? Again, I would be interested to hear how or why you became an agnostic. And, about going to church. Yeah, it's good, but most of us did not first find God there. I'm a pastor's kid, so go figure. Anyhow, thanks for your honesty, my friend. By the way, check out BCRMike's respond, I like it.

I question this supposed 'truth of God' because I question the scriptures and what is being taught(and how) about this God. If God does exist then HE can chose if I go to Hell or Heaven. This won't change my life or how I live it. And I don't have to go to church and pray to him to have it done one way or the other. He is believed in because christians need him. Fear of the unknown. Fear of what they can't stand up and face by themselves. I am an agnostic because I don't believe any true God would be so self serving and egotistical as people here on Earth make him out to be with the grandeus churches and rituals. That is for us here on Earth not for him. His son was a humble and intelligent man. Not one to go out for this kind of bull. Common sense tells me higher beings are laughing at us not justifying what christians do with salvation. Makes no sense to me and I wouldn't follow such a being.

Based on how i've lived so far, i think i'm going to hell. But i'm trying my best to make it up and do good deeds to people. I don't wanna go there. Of course all of us wants to go to heaven, what they call paradise. :)

Ah, so this brings me to this point . . . I'm no better than you. And will any of our good deeds be good enough to go to heaven? Though, we shouldn't stop being and doing good, our ticket to heaven was already paid. We just have to accept the payment. Thanks for being honest.

Based on what I have done or left undone where I go would not be good. Fornutately, my fate is not determined by that all the best urban

Why do I think so? Because I have done evil, by thought, by word and by deed all the best urban

Absolutely. Our fate doesn't depend on what we've done. I guess none of us deserve to go to heaven. We couldn't be good enough for that.

I believe there is only one criterion for going to heaven or hell. If one has brought peace of mind to others he would go to heaven. If one has disturbed the peace of mind of others then he would go to hell. I try my best not to disturb the peace of mind of others.

LOL hinduism believes in rebirths, it is not necessary that a human will go back as human again, it depends upon the present as well as deeds in the previous life I can't say as what i will be reborn, let me hope as human again.. Thanks for sharing. Welcome always. Cheers. Prof

Hi Gtargirl, Good question. As a Christian I would like to think that I would be off to Heaven but that is not my decision, however I haven't been squeaky clean all my life but everything I have ever done I did for the right reasons at the time even if in hindsight they were wrong choice. I feel that I am a compassionate and caring person who in fact helps a lot of people in different ways each day of my life. I am a welfare office for the familes congregation at my church and help run the Messy Church youth club for the 5-11 year olds so walk the walk rather than talk the talk. The hardest thing I have found to do is forgive myself although it is easy to forgive others, I don't forget though and prayer for my enemies to find God also. Huggles. Ellie :D
