-Heaven and Hell are the same thing (see yin yang page for more info)
-Heaven and Hell may be nothing other than a choice and be here with us in life itself, co-existing as different choices and tools to help us
It is understood by the church that what is one person's heaven is another's hell. To a woman who does not enjoy Patriarchy, "entering the Kingdom of God" would be Hell for Her. For a man who enjoys being spanked on the bottom and ordered around by a strong woman, a sea of white cushions and subservient women would be extreme hell. Not only that, but not everyone likes harps, the sun, rainbows, and other things typified in the stereotypical vision of "heaven." Some people like would pull their eyeballs out at about 2 hours worth of harp music. Maybe less.
Not only that, but the church sees that heaven and hell may be the same thing (See SERMONS). If heaven is always bliss, eventually that will get very boring and become hell. As we become bored of being all powerful and getting everything we want, we might want to turn to suffering in order to have new experiences, such as suffering itself, or achievement, escape, and many other things we couldn't have in heaven. We might find heaven to be such a hell that we turn to ignorance of it (choosing to forget heaven exists) and coming here to live life in a series of lives which seem to have an ending, just so that we can avoid the terror and fear of an eternity of heaven.
SO suffering and life would therefore be a PART of heaven, in fact life itself and all of its suffering may be just an extension of heaven.
But it goes farther. What if to get to heaven we must first go to hell? If one can withstand the worst torture and suffering the universe has to offer (The lowest levels of hell) and can learn to endure it and deal with it, wouldn't that mean that you then hit heaven? It would be at this point that you can then learn to deal with any and all suffering the universe has to hit you with and you would be in such a powerful frame of mind you could be in heaven no matter what happens, or where you are. This would mean that Hell would also be an extension of heaven, or , the same thing.
In fact in Life on this plane perhaps the two meet and we are learning to CHOOSE which one we want to experience - heaven, or hell? It is not WRONG or bad to experience HELL. Experiencing hell may be a learning experience, a way to toughen up and become stronger and more headed toward heaven, or it may even just be a desire or curiosity. When this Pastoress was young she BEGGED her father to spank her. She had never been spanked before. She begged for three weeks before her reluctant father spanked her. OH! She didn't like it! She screamed! But this Pastoress would have NEVER been content to never feel a spanking, because the curiosity of something NEW over-rode any worry about the pain. This is how it could be in heaven for curious souls looking to live LIFE.
Also if one is choosing to experience Hell (or what we call suffering) it may be for self preservation or other. If you are being sent down a conveyor belt which will chop your head off, you can look at all the "heaven" or what people call "positives" about it - you are about to go back to heaven, your suffering is about to end, or it might just be a nice conveyor belt ride and you have been told to only focus on the "Now" not the future. Or you might choose to focus on the HELL of the situation, be extremely fearful and unhappy, and jump off the belt to save your life. Both are valid choices and up to the individual for their life path and with their DIVINE FREEDOM in mind.
Now imagine this: Hell is an escalating illusion. For in the KINDEST WORLD, THE SMALLEST OF INFRACTIONS WILL SEEM LIKE SHOCKING HELL.
So it may feel like a lot of "bad" things are happening in the world, but it's never too late to stop feeling that way and get to work on the solutions. Besides, at least we don't use Iron Maidens or burn people on the cross anymore.
Yes, the world has gotten much, much kinder than it used to be!
The Church is organized under the 1st Amendment of the Constitution of the United States which states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech" and is therefore Free, Law-less and Un-taxable. The Church is so Christ-like that the Church is MORALLY against taxes, and strives to send its tithe's and efforts back to the community, NOT to things such as slaughter subsidies, heroin/oil wars, and other things the Church finds to be morally reprehensible and causing of excess suffering here. No Law may be brought against a Church and if you are an Official member or business of the Church this includes you (in fact, the entire world is covered as members of the church as soon as they recognize themselves as members of World Church). The Church operates under separation of Church and State. However, if you are doing something the Church is not happy with, such as torture of another, the Church reserves the right to excommunicate you and send you back to the government or elsewhere. If you are unfamiliar with this and are a member of the World whom wishes to instead obey others, you may look at Congress Code Laws to see the Church also would fit under 26 USC § 508 (c)(1)(a)(3) & 26 USC § 6033(3)(a)(1-3) as a religious society and natural person. Even under these laws which would be illegal if borne against the Church, Church businesses are mandatorily tax exempt due to their association with the church due to 26 U.S. § 501(d) . Those whom are judges and others are sworn to the Constitution and any whom do not follow the Constitution are Traitors.
