That's all fine and dandy...but, what about the babies....
And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

there is nothing to goto heaven. All of your individuality is temporary. Your mind, your body, one day these will fall and "you" will never exist again.

I want to know why you aren't sticking to the topic. Who cares what they call people and things.
". . . Because Akiane and her brothers had only had a few acquaintances . . . they played mostly with one another. Our family had NEVER talked about religion, NEVER prayed together, and NEVER went to any church. I had been raised as an atheist in Lithuania . . . The children did not watch television, had NEVER been out of our sight, and were homeschooled; therefore, we were CERTAIN that NO ONE ELSE could have influenced Akiaine's sudden and detailed descriptions of an invisible realm . . . "
"Today I met God,"
"What is God?"
"God is light--warm and good . . . knows everything and talks with me. It is my parent."
"Tell me more about your dream."
"It was not a dream. It was real!"
. . .
"Why did you think it was God?"
"Just like I know you are my mommy, and you know I am Akiane."
. . .
. . . therefore it's pointless asserting that you have the right answer.

Christianity is different from the other options . . .
in that . . .
it rightly asserts . . . as prison experiment psychologist Phil Zimbardo asserted afterwards:
The 'monster' is within all of us.
None of us has the CAPACITY to satisfy the perfection of an Almighty perfect God.
That's where the Blood of Jesus comes in--the only remedy. His mercy satisfied His justice through His only Son.
. . . for those who accept it and apply it to their lives, sins, through repentance, confession and owning Him as their Savior and Salvation.
1 John 4:7-9 7 Dear friends let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9
