: : Alright, understand, that this is my own personal thoughts on the matter, and no other perception that I know of coincides with mine. I believe that all of the Universe is God's Truth, that we are enveloped in God's Truth, and the only Truth, we can come to know, is in fact, God's Truth. Now if you have approved of the Truth as the Universe, God's Creation, has approved of involving you in knowing it to be, and God receives you into Oneness, Eternally, your perception of yourself will be Heaven, Eternally. If you have denied the Truth that you have been enveloped in, and God receives you into Oneness, Eternally, then your perception of yourself will be pure Hell, Eternally. Ah, but God's Sword Heals Even As It Cuts, and thus, even a second, can seem as though it were Eternal. :o)

This is interesting. Okay, I've never heard of this kind of argument before, although it sounds a little like the heaven and hell scenario the pope described recently. So, let me see if I accurately understand your theory.

You said that the universe and the truth are synonomous. When you die, he (or it) and you merge into a single being (along with countless other people who have died). This merging into oneness happens regardless of whether or not you accept God's truth. However, if one accepts the truth that the universe was created by God, then your self perseption will be heaven for all eternity. But if you don't accept this truth, then your self perception is eternal hell. BUT, God has offered a back door by making one second seem like an eternity, so he offers a way out. Am I understanding you correctly (I wouldn't want to argue something I only vaguely understand, now would I?)
