Mostbelieve in the idea of judgment after death, and that God will treat people in the afterlifeaccording to how they lived their life on earth.✟Even though heaven is often mentioned in the Bible, it is rarely described. Christianstherefore have very different ideas about it. Some believe that heaven is a physicalplace, where their body goes after death. Others believe that it is their soul that liveson, and that heaven is a state of being united with God. Although most would like tobelieve that it is a place full of angels.✟The Bible is even less specific about hell, and Christians have very different ideasabout this too.
