A place you turn too

Heaven, Hell the space in-between. Where do you think you will go when that inevitable day comes? Do you think you will be one of the lucky ones to be blessed with an after life in the amazing place of heaven or do you fear the eternity of pain and torment in hell? Or do you not believe in any, nothingness after your final breath, asleep with no dreams or no waking calls?
Every human fears death, maybe consciously or maybe not but its they’re driven into your brain its part of your human survival guide. The more you fear death the harder you try to live. But do humans more fear death its self, the way you end up there for example dying of cancer, a car accident, murder or even suicide. Or do you fear the after part the part that no one can tell you about, no one can describe?
For me it is the fear of after, my faith and my beliefs tell me that there is a heaven and a hell that the right people will go to the right place. God will not let the wrong people go to the wrong place. But my peers and popular culture tells me that there is no after life there is just a spot in the ground. A place for your body to lie in as you decay slowly being forgotten.
So which to believe which idea to fallow should I worry about my every action trying to get into heaven, praying about my sins and trying to right myself in the way of the lord so that I don’t spend my eternal life forever living out a punishment in hell. Or do I choose to do as I please living my life as I feel fit no care no worry until that last day that last breath when I realize how dumb I’ve been how scared I am of nothingness after this life.

That's great! (that you beleive in the Bible) Well, let me start off by saying that your friends were right when they told you that there is no heaven or hell . God made us from the dust of the earth, and that's all we are. Ecclesiastes 3:20 says, "All go to ONE place: all are from the dust, and all return to dust." But that doesn't mean that we just give up on trying to do what's right. There IS a sure and true way to get eternal life!

God made us from the dust of the earth, and thats all we are. Ecclesiastes 3:20 says, "All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return." But that doen't mean that we just give up on trying to do what's right . . . there is a sure and true way to get eternal life!

I like that idea, I mean I want there to be a heaven and a hell but I can see the proof behind there not being one
