Heaven and Hell are religious concepts, therefore come from religious Holy Books, primarily the Christian Bible. The Christian Bible never mentioned
a Hell originally, it mentioned "Sheol" and "Hades," otherwise translated as "grave."
I don't believe the Bible is correct in any way, but let's say it was, then when you die you are dead and buried, whereas if you're worthy then it's
Heaven for you. The Bible also mentioned that the "Hell" people refer to, the Lake of Fire, was reserved for Satan and the Antichrist, and that the
sinners who do not repent will have their souls destroyed, not tortured for eternity. This "Hell" was originally named "Gehenna," a place outside
Jerusalem where bad people sacrificed children, and it was then turned into a landfill as it were, where the people would keep it on fire, and if you
were a ad person, you would be killed and out in the fire for your soul to burn for "eternity."
As far as i'm aware, the whole Biblical afterlife has been twisted to incite fear, and that if you die and have been repenful, you will go to Heaven,
and if you haven't been repentful, you're soul will just be destroyed, you won't even be aware anymore, and your body will rot in the ground like
nature intended, and Hell is the place for Satan and the Antichrist, possibly the other fallen angels also.
Then again, I don't believe in any of this, but I still like to point out the hstorical facts of the mistranslations, it seems to comfort some
Christians when they realise they have been duped, and won't burn forever and ever.
