..but my point is in death, we are not 'resting'....we are not taking a 'nap'....we are in eternity....either Heaven or Hell.

I believe that in spite of our earthly sins, there is some good in each of us and that our All-Knowing God is a magnanimous God. When we die, we are ending/resting from this life and go on to face God, WHO decides our eternal fate.
