Do you go to Heaven or Hell right when you die? (Christian topic)Submitted by tog2476 on Thu, 08/02/2012 - 09:09
My friends and I had a pretty good Bible study on this and I thought it was important to share with my fellow Christian Libertarians, or whom ever wants to take a look. Many people believe that when you die, that you go straight to Heaven or Hell, but it seems nowhere in the Bible does it state we go anywhere but to sleep and our soul goes back to God until that final day.
Job 14:12 KJV
So man lieth down , and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake , nor be raised out of their sleep.
Daniel 12:2 KJV

John 11:11 KJV
These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth ; but I go , that I may awake him out of sleep .
Acts 20:9 KJV
And there sat in a window a certain young man named Eutychus, being fallen into a deep sleep: and as Paul was long preaching , he sunk down with sleep, and fell down from the third loft, and was taken up dead.
1 Thessalonians 4:14 KJV
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again , even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Proverbs 30:4 KJV

John 3:13 KJV
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
Acts 2:34 KJV
For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
