What if there is no heaven – Part 3
• The question of heaven has to do with afterlife. What happens to a person after he/she has died?
• Can there be afterlife?
• If there is no heaven, there is no hell either.
• Is there possibility that there is no hell?
• What is hell?
• Hell is generally believed to be a place of torment, suffering, and punishment.
• It is believed to be a place where evil people go when they die.
• If we do not accept accounts of people who had near death experiences or even died and came back to life to tell their stories; if we discount what the Bible says about afterlife; if we discard physical evidence of the possibility of heaven and hell; then we all can live our lives as we feel like with no strings attached.
• Someone once said to me, what if when you die you realize (if possible) that death is the end of existence? What if you then discover that there is no heaven or hell?
• I then asked the same question in the opposite. What if when you die you realize that there is heaven and hell?
• To a person who believed that there is heaven and hell and at his death discover that they do not exist, he has nothing to lose.
• To a person who did not believe in the existence of heaven and hell and at his death discover their existences, he will suffer loss.
• He will suffer loss because if they exist, then their results of believing in them or rejecting their existence will be applicable.
• Hell is believed to be at the centre of the earth.
• Geography attests to the fact that the centre of the earth is hot.
• Volcano is the physical evidence that it is hot at the centre of the earth.
• Have you ever wondered that why would it be hot at the centre of the earth?
• Every planet has its own magnetic force. The force of gravity is pulling every matter to the centre of the earth.
• There have been mysterious forces at some parts of the earth. Bermuda triangle is one of them.
• WHAT IS KNOWN ABOUT THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE:
• The Bermuda Triangle is a region of the North Atlantic Ocean (roughly) bounded by the southeastern coast of the U.S., Bermuda, and the islands of the Greater Antilles (Cuba, Hispaniola, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico).
• The exact boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle are not universally agreed upon. Approximations of the total area range between 500,000 and 1,510,000 square miles (1,300,000 and 3,900,000 square kilometres). By all approximations, the region has a vaguely triangular shape.
• The Bermuda Triangle does not appear on any world maps, and the U.S. Board on Geographic Names does not recognize the Bermuda Triangle as an official region of the Atlantic Ocean.
• Although reports of unexplained occurrences in the region date to the mid-19th century, the phrase “Bermuda Triangle” didn’t come into use until 1964. The phrase first appeared in print in a pulp magazine article by Vincent Gaddis, who used the phrase to describe a triangular region “that has destroyed hundreds of ships and planes without a trace.”
• At least two incidents in the region involved U.S. military craft. In March 1918 the collier USS Cyclops, en route to Baltimore, Maryland, from Brazil, disappeared inside the Bermuda Triangle. No explanation was given for its disappearance, and no wreckage was found. Some 27 years later, a squadron of bombers (collectively known as Flight 19) under American Lieut. Charles Carroll Taylor disappeared in the airspace above the Bermuda Triangle. As in the Cyclops incident, no explanation was given and no wreckage was found.
• In 2013 the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) conducted an exhaustive study of maritime shipping lanes and determined that the Bermuda Triangle is not one of the world’s 10 most dangerous bodies of water for shipping.
• The Bermuda Triangle sustains heavy daily traffic, both by sea and by air.
• The Bermuda Triangle is one of the most heavily traveled shipping lanes in the world.
• The agonic line sometimes passes through the Bermuda Triangle, including a period in the early 20th century. The agonic line is a place on Earth’s surface where true north and magnetic north align, and there is no need to account for magnetic declination on a compass.
• The Bermuda Triangle is subject to frequent tropical storms and hurricanes.
• The Gulf Stream—a strong ocean current known to cause sharp changes in local weather—passes through the Bermuda Triangle.
• The deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean, the Milwaukee Depth, is located in the Bermuda Triangle. The Puerto Rico Trench reaches a depth of 27,493 feet (8,380 meters) at the Milwaukee Depth.
• WHAT IS NOT KNOWN ABOUT THE BERMUDA TRIANGLE:
• The exact number of ships and airplanes that have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle is not known. The most common estimate is about 50 ships and 20 airplanes.
• The wreckage of many ships and airplanes reported missing in the region has not been recovered.
• It is not known whether disappearances in the Bermuda Triangle have been the result of human error or weather phenomena.
• One diver testified about when he was diving in the area that when he reached the bottom, he felt force pulling him deeper into the sand. He heard sound of some chains and cries of people in agony. Fortunately, he managed to escape that force.
• What might these incidences be indicating?
• 2 Peter 2:4 ESV
• Jesus spoke a lot about hell.
• Matthew 5:22
• Matthew 5:29
• Mark 9:43
• Matthew 10:28
• Luke 12:5
• Matthew 23:33
• The Bible attests to the fact that there is hell.
Luke 16:19-31 ESV
