An upcoming ABC TV special promises to take an in depth look at the subject of heaven.
Anchored by Barbara Walters, and titled Heaven. Where Is It? How Do We Get There? a news release from ABC says the program will explore the meaning of heaven with religious leaders of the major faiths, scientists, people who say they believe in heaven because theyve been there, and celebrities who are vocal about their beliefs. Show producers even talk with terrorists.
According to the news release, Walters takes viewers on a journey around the world to India, Israel and throughout the United States. She interviews people of different religious and scientific beliefs, each with strong opinions about the afterlife. They discuss their visions of heaven, what happens to the body, and why it is important to believe in heaven.

As if Barbara knows.
with Barbara Walters? Sounds more like hell.
Oh Bwwabwa, Pwease tell us.....she is an idiot...but heaven is real, no matter the Deoratic spin on it.
Good thing I wasn't drinking anything expensive... LOL.
I heard this promo on TV today and laughed out loud. The commercial was so serious and truly sounded like, "ABC is going to reveal to you the deep, dark, hidden secret of how to get into heaven." Who can only imagine what this garbage will be about.
Thank G!d for Baba Wawa( SNL *sic*)
Show producers even talk with terrorists.
no the DNC
Can ya get cinnamon toast and free republic in heaven?
Her conclusion will be that all roads lead to heaven.
Heaven: Not having to watch network TV or news. At least while I am here.
Does Barbara talk like Elmer Fudd or does Elmer Fudd talk like Barbara?
Is it true that it was Wahwah who ordered a hit on Gilda Radner?!
If you have to ask Barbara..... Well, you know the rest.
NPR did a piece just like this last month IIRC...
This is Babbah Wah Wah with an intewesting weport. Tonite, How do we get to Heaven.......
Always love it when libs seek the "ultimate truth." I was always waiting for Clinton's Bible to flame up as he carried it to church
Traffic - "Heaven Is In Your Mind"
You ride on the swing in and out of the bars
Capturing moments of life in a jar
Playing with children, acting as stars
Guiding your visions to heaven
And heaven is in your mind
Take extra care not to lose what you feel
The apple you're eating is simple and real
So water the flowers that grow at you heel
Guiding your visions to heaven
And heaven is in your mind
Liberals cannot really distinguish Christian faith with other beliefs. They think that since this is 'holiday season', it's appropriate to put anything related to religious beliefs. After all, they're all 'spiritual'. That their coverage may actually offend Christians who are celebrating Christmas is beyond their understanding.
Now why do I think that the name Jesus will not come up.
Uh, huh. Babs, you're going to need both hands and a flashlight, dear. Look in the last place you were and work backwards.
Let's be fair here... Christmas is when it is so that it could eclipse the pagan holidays that surrounded the winter solstice.
Yes. And Christians need to be reminded again and again during Christmas time...
We know the way, and all we have to do is accept him as our Lord and Savior.
I would like to solicit Freeper comment on a question I have about Heaven.
As Christians, we often talk about a dead relative who is now in a "better place", up in Heaven watching over us.
But doesn't the Bible say that we wait until the Second Coming of Jesus Christ before we are brought to our final judgement, and then to either Heaven or Hell?
Is Grandma up there now, or is she still waiting?
No, I think you're wrong there. I think she's going to have the dahlai lama on, and she's going to read John 14:6 to him-- Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
And then she's going to tell him to go back to the heathens and repent. "Turn or burn"- she'll yell as he skulks out. No really... I saw a clip...
Let's put it this way...
This time of year has naturally enticed the human heart (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) in that it promises a new beginning (days finally not getting shorter)
I'm all for the binding nature of that hope realized.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Joyous Festivus!
We're all humans, and we all love the return of the Sun (Son)
No doubt about that mombonn!
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Who ya gonna believe America, Jesus or Barbara Wah-wah???
All believers arrive in Heaven at the same time. The thief next to Jesus who dies with Him was promised he'd be there "this day". So if you dies as a believer today, you'd arrive in heaven on the day you died, and say it was 2005. Someone arriving from 1713 would swear it was 1713.
As for nonbelievers, they don't have it so good. Jesus told about the rich man and Lazarus-- Lazurus a beggar waited in paradise, while the evil rich nonbeliever wasted away in torment.
If your Granma was a believer-- good for her. She's "sleeping" as Jesus would put it. She'll awake and be resurrected when jesus comes at the rapture, before the Tribulation. If she wasn't a believer in Jesus.... it's hard to put a good spin on it. I hope she was.
"So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald...striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one--big hitter, the Lama--long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? 'Gunga galunga...gunga, gunga-galunga.' So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, 'Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know.' And he says, 'Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness.' So I got that goin' for me, which is nice."

"I feel safe now. Barbara will help us."
Do not mock the Barbara. She has deadly and profound journalist powers and will smite you with one flick of her elitist pen as she rides into town on a fearsome beast they call Starr Jones.
Wow, pardon the "dies" typos. I type way too fast.... I mean "died" times 2. ha ha I type with 2 fingers-- much to fast...
So, according to the Bible, I am right that when people say things like "Grandma is looking down on us now from a better place" (assuming she was born again), they are stating something that is incorrect? Saem with Tookie being in Hell as we speak?
The reward and punishment are deferred. (Of course, time has no meaning for the dead so they can't tell)
buhhahahaha! Bill Murry is a comedic genius!
"Oh Mrs. Crane, you're a little monkey woman. Yeah, you're lean, mean, and I bet you're not too far in between are ya. How'd you like to wrap your spikes around my..."
Great tagline :)
Well, depends upon whom she asks. According to muslims the more non-muslims you kill, you'll not only get comp'd into heaven, but you'll be handed six dozen virgins to boot.
Now, if those virgins are comparable to some of the choices Clinton's made in "selecting" women, then some might construe that to be hell. So perspective may be a factor here.
I don't know where it is; I just know that I'm supposed to meet five people there...
I think the phrase "looking down on us" is just for us-- the living. To make us feel better. From your Grandma's perspective, the time from her death (when she closed her eyes) to the time she "comes to" in her new body (if she is a Christian), will be an instant. A twinkling of an eye. And she'll have no memories of how she dies, or of any pain she experienced. The Bible teaches Jesus "wipes every tear away" aka- he wipes our painful memories. The Bible says that the old will not be brought to mind or remembered. That's great, because I'm carrying around stuff from the third grade- ha ha
Thanks, that's what I thought.
Kinda like how Peter Jennings proved Jesus was nothing more than just a man. Wonder where he's wandering now?
