      I would rather be born into something else because Christianity's rules of, "Getting into heaven" Is bullshit. I can't cuss, I can't drink, I can't do anything that would be mildly entertaining. It would suck. So I think I'll take my chances.

      @Vilius no, going to church and doing good for other people does not garentee your pass to heaven. You can never do enough good to do that, the bible states. it is by excepting Jesus, you get your salvation, and then you show your faith through works.

      Being "good" and going to heaven have no correlation to each other there's only one way to heaven and that's through Christ there is no way to earn your way into heaven we can't do any deed or work to get ourself there it's through Christ and when we accept him as our savior and give our hearts to him that's our assurance of going to Heaven not drinking or doing things like that is just evidence of our belief in Christ it is not the belief itself sadly these are misconceptions of non-believers and many churches

      Actually, I could've technically chosen either.. as I'm sure many people could've. At least my life can't go much downwards from the life I've dealt with. There are some good things that I'd rather not give up, though. Heaven/death with the few people that did show you some love is much better than living again and possibly going through the same horrible abuse and illness.

No verse in the bible says "thou shalt not drink wine" it says dont be DRUNK with wine. And God is not a cosmic killjoy that keeps you from having fun unless your definition of "mildly entertaining" is getting DRUNK (not just drinking remember), fornification, or partaking in mass shootings so yeah.

      Are you saying you're going to hell? You do realize that if you believe in God and Christ and repent then you will be allowed into Heaven. The question is saying you will go based on what you did in life. I also believe in reincarnation as it is but that beside the point.

      And to those who claim against Heaven existing I feel sorry for you. You don't know the extent of Christ's love. He's still loves you, yet you deny Him. I get its your choice, but your choice is still an opinion with NO physical proof either way. We haven't seen a Heaven, but then again have we seen everything? Why would God, the ultimate Creator and Master of the universe make it easy for us to find Him? You say there is no physical proof and you may be right. But we don't need

    I think that... As much as I hate talking about religion. There is a better chance of getting into heaven because Jesus forgives for sins. And with reincarnation (I may be wrong, correct me if I am) you don't have those chances. It all adds up, and everybody makes mistakes, some worse than others, so you'd most likely end up a somewhat worse life. As if, if you were to go to heaven, if you made mistakes you can change, and ask Jesus for forgiveness and go to Heaven. and when you make those mistakes and do bad things when it comes to reincarnation, there is no forgiveness or turning back. Just waiting for your next miserable life, instead of looking forward to heaven which is forever happiness. So I believe it would be easier to get to heaven than to be a human next life... and worrying about being a worm or such the next.

      The belief of reincarnation works like this: You do good, you get a better body in the next life, and vice-versa. Once you hit that all-time good, your soul becomes one with the universe, forever entwined with everything. There is also a point down towards the bottom where you only act off of instinct, and therefore can do no bad, and start going back up the chain.

      haru glory I think he's saying that atheists would assume they go to Hell or have a worse life because they aren't religious, so they choose what they think is the lesser punishment. Of course, the post specifies that judgement is about living a good life, not being religious, so yeah it makes no sense. Also there are many other reasons for choosing red, so it's impossible to say how many atheists there were.

    I don't really beleive in either, if i had to choose reincarnation sounds more plausible. However the astral plane could easily be mistaken for a heaven or hell and besides living means suffering, life sucks, and i'm tired of it. I've been alive for long enough and i could use a nice long rest away from the physical world.

    Contrary to popular belief, Hell is a very comfortable and fun place to live. You like Worlds/Oceans of fun? That's all modeled after amusement parks in Hell. FPS's is what they DO in their free time. BUT, heaven is quite the opposite. It's horrible, you're suffering all the time, and it's a shithole.

    Christians don't believe that Heaven is just an eternal church service. It's basically you just chill out in Paradise until God remakes the earth then you just do whatever you want. You can hang out with your friends and do stuff, go wherever, not die, and all the animals are chill and like "Yo dude I'm a dolphin, want a ride to Hawaii?" And you're like "Sure, I'm gonna ask Jesus and Moses if they want to surf."

    I may get hate for this but I believe that It is up to God to decide who goes to Heaven or Hell. I believe that you should be kind and humble, pray and forgive, seek with your whole heart to do good and try to avoid bad, ask for forgiveness when you do do bad, and believe that Jesus died for your sins so that you can be forgiven. All the rest is up to God.

    Actually, how you live your life is not the determining factor of getting into Heaven or not. But it is true you get to choose. You must choose Christ - without Him there is no Heaven. Now, earestly choosing Him *will* change how you live your life, but its consequence, not cause. You can say I am wrong, but it is not me who is saying it. Christ is Lord, Liar, or Lunatic; he does not leave much room. He's not a "good teacher" or a "moral guide". You must decide what you're going to do with Him - Lord, Liar, or Lunatic.

    God is the one who made u! How do u not realize this. He sent his only Son to save u from eternal suffering. God isny someone who says to either serve Him or u go to Hell. He gave us options, free choice, to do the right thing and believe in Him. Christians have never said that anybody is in Hell for sure, some make assumptions that people like Hitler have gone to Hell but not our call. As humans we cant know who God sent to Hell. All im saying is u put down Christians for punishing the ignorant and the sinful. U are in denial that u must be a good person in life so u dont have to. And if u believe God exists, even if u do not follow Christianity, u would know He knows everything and what punishment u deserve.

      no god isn't real he's basically proven fake with evolution and the big bang and while I'm on the topic evolution has more proof than over half of scientific facts but isn't considered a fact because of christian protest of the subject. through out history christianity has hindered scientific advancement and the development of society so the religion itself already harms us now.

    Well, I'm an atheist and I've committed many 'sins' (I made out with another guy once, apparently for that I deserve to burn for eternity) so I'd much prefer reincarnation to eternal suffering. In addition, even if I somehow got into heaven, I think I'd still prefer to be reincarnated. No offense, I am not speaking of the religion as an entirety, but the majority of christians I've met tended to be rather boring in my opinion. Also, from what the bible says, God is a small-minded, biggotted, Genocidal, Homophobic, self-righteous piece of shit who deserves to suffer more than any human for his mindset.

    Heaven and hell is based on your belief. That belief doesn't have to be based on what a religions thinks, since no one knows truly what God uses to determine whether you go to heaven or hell. It's left up to interpretation, meaning you could base this on your own belief of heaven. I believe that if you're generally a good person, you'll go to heaven, even if you do some things against the Christian version of going to heaven.
