Revelation 20 (American Standard Version)
5 The rest of the dead lived not until the thousand years should be finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: over these the second death hath no power; but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand year ...[text shortened]...
15 And if any was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire.

You really have nothing to worry about. I carefully designed heaven so that it is directly above hell. Not only do you get to look down on all those atheists, but you can hear them scream too. Besides, as heaven is a totally sin-free place and even the slightest desire to do wrong is a sin, I cleverly remove all such cravings and desires. Hence the "I shall not want" I wrote down for you in the Good Book.

I cant work that out. Did the dead live or not during the thousand years?
13 And the sea gave up the dead that were in it; and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. ...[text shortened]... udgment about? Are there punishments for particular works? Where does one serve his punishment?
Originally posted by FeastboyI may also. Maybe. It is less expensive.
I'm gonna get cremated.
Originally posted by jaywillWell, yeah, if you believe Jesus.
Or not. Possibly.
The way I see it, if Jesus had wanted us to be left uncertain about it, He could have left it uncertain. He didn't seem to do that.
There are other things though, which God has left not completely certain to us.[/b]
Originally posted by jaywillWell yeah, I agree, If I didn't believe jesus and he was the truth, it wouldn't matter.
But if you don't believe Jesus and Jesus is the Truth, it won't make a hill of beans that you didn't believe.
So it behooves us to consider well before we decide, don't you think?
I think it wouldn't at all hurt to have a good long open and honest talk to God / Christ about it.
