I've no idea which it is, but pearly white gates reminds me of teeth... Not sure I want that just after I die

The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.

Only those who pass through them know for sure :P

Personally, I think it's just trying to say that heaven is more glorious than any earthly palace, after all GOD is the Monarch of the Universe, right?

I've learned you can't make someone love you, all you can do is beat the crap out of them until they agree to.

Cool question, Rattie ;D
I think the gate's just a symbolic image, some will be barred after all*LOL*Since I'm a medieval buff, I'm kind of hoping for a drawbridge 8)

What? and the moat opens up into hell? so all peter has to do is give you a little nudge off the edge if you don't meet the grade? :P

Mel...well, Luv, its better than burning pitch ;D

Fly...shhhhh, I'll get in if I have to storm the walls<I was planning on crossbow/longbow with rope attached>

I think a lot of cultures/faiths hold the notion of some sort of Judgment by the Divine...I'm not sure I believe that, personally I believe in a loving God, so can't really
see an eternal punishment<Mel, I guess that means you spend a few hundred years in the moat 8)>

we all need recognition- and what better recognition than divine judgement?
I think its worrying that Heaven seems to have become a fortress... its not like its a pretty palace even...

The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.

I totally agree!  Nature has produced Cathedrals more spectacular than anything mortals can create.

I hope the whole "sea of glass" thing in the Book of Revelation is mere symbolism.  For me, it would be hell without at least a few trees, a quiet pond, and gorgeous mountains.

well, many people that have been clinically dead and 'came back' said that they saw a luminous, white light and going through a tunnel and that they felt immense peace, so much so that many people resented being brought back to their physical reality!

Looks like we've got something to look forward to, guys!
