That kinda devalues the whole 'punishment' angle to Hell, when you can just choose not to believe in it instead of facing it, huh?I believe the afterlife is whatever you believe it will be. If you believe in a heaven and a hell, you'll go to one or the other, unless you're Catholic, then there's Purgatory. If you believe there's no afterlife, then that's all for you. If you believe in reincarnation, you come back as whatever. If you believe you move into the spiritual plane of existence, you're a spirit. If you believe you go to the bosom of a loving God, that's where you go. Any opinion is valid here. Nobody is wrong, and nobody is right. Everyone's mileage varies.
Sometimes people face and go through Hell right here on Earth. Since nobody has died, gone to Hell, and returned who can be sure Hell exists in an afterlife, anyway? So people can choose to believe, or not believe, in a Hell after death. YMMV.That kinda devalues the whole 'punishment' angle to Hell, when you can just choose not to believe in it instead of facing it, huh?
