Heaven: Is it A Real Place, A State of Being or Time?
I am mostly concern about what the Bible teaches on the subject of Heaven, first, over the various theories from theologians. When we mine the Bible for truth, all other conjectures and theories will be laid bare as heresies or error.
- Is heaven a real place? If so, where is it and who dwells there?
- Is heaven the realm where God dwells? How many heavens are there? Are there one, two, three, or more?
- When the Bible writers use the word "heaven" do they do so metaphorically? If so, what hope is there for the Christian believer?
- For a roundness of understanding, how is "Heaven" defined and/or believed in the intertestamental and rabbinic literature?
What says ye, from your earthly perch, looking heavenwardly? CM
