Lets just say for a moment that I believe in heaven/hell. I don’t want to discuss the validity of their existence, but would hope that some who do
believe in “God’s Kingdom,” will be able to provide an opinion based upon their interpretation of what a soldiers motive, duties and
accomplishments will grant them.
Unconditional Love = God = Heaven!
"Heaven is at hand!" - Jesus
Anything other than unconditional Love = sin = insanity = Hell!
There IS only Here! Now!
Now, if you are a 'Xtian', you already know what unconditional Love/Jesus would do!
Pick up a weapon and kill someone?
The same is Truth throughout all 'paths'!
They ALL converge at the same place!
Enlightenment = unconditional Love!
(even of the 'path' that you were on upon becoming Universal!)
There is no carrot/stick lies reward judgment day after you die.
'You' dis-incorporate back into Mother Recycle, to be reincorporated in myriads of ways and forms!! *__-
You can be damn sure that no one with a weapon attempting to harm another is in 'Heaven'!
Parenthetically, no one ever attempts to deliberately harm another, unless one is infected with some strain of a 'belief infection'!
Such as the soldiers 'belief' in his government, or his concept of 'Freedom' (tm)...
A 'belief' is an infection of the imagination, the ego, and it is highly symptomatic!
Killing others is one symptom.
The imagination/thought is also the little red devil on your shoulder whispering into your ear!
Even the bible gets that one right in warning to NEVER 'believe' anything that you 'think' or 'feel' ('feelings' are 'thoughts')!
Being vanity/Pride, it carries 'the' 'sin' warning because it blinds you to unconditional Love (and thus the descent...)!
Anyway, that's my experience...
