Heaven or hell

Grace, mercy and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus.

I really don't want to sound judgmental here, but this is exactly the sort of question that gets Christians going for each others' throats.

I do have an answer to that question; the answer satisfies me. I think it's Scriptural and in keeping with what Christians have believed for an awfully long time. But what good would it do to share that answer? Maybe I'm just short-sighted. I don't know. But this much I do know: If I die immediately after posting this comment, I'm going to heaven. I don't know whether I go to heaven immediately after I die, or whether I sleep in the ground until Christ returns, but this much I DO know. I'm going.
