I find that well-put and illustrative, or informational, (not sure which term fits best :biggrin: ) to one such as me not really schooled in religion, boney! :thumbsup: I hope this comes out correctly. I find it tough to project my actual sincerity when I am discussing religion. It is so easy for me to say the wrong thing and find it taken as insincere or gratuitous. It's as much a cultural difference as any, it seems.

Exactly. Face to face you can usually tell what someone is really meaning.

OGB. Not trying to be argumentative or disrespectful, but when you say Heaven, what does that mean to you? Does it mean the same to all Christians? I know this sounds like I'm setting up for something, but I'm not. I'm sincerely interested. Does Heaven mean different things to different people? I don't mean different religions. I know the Muslims think one thing and Christians think another, but how is Heaven defined to a Christian? Or Hell for that matter. I would welcome input from anyone. I have no religious convictions, or background, at least in line with what I understand to be conventional Christian ideas, so I wonder. Thanks.
