Many often wonder what heaven is like. Others don’t give this much though or have a very limited idea of heaven based on television programs. Do we just float around on clouds or learn to play the harp or become angels? Galatians 3:26-27 gives a surprising hint about what heaven is like. How would you describe it to someone who asks you? This video contains a spiritual exercise to help you become more aware of what heaven is like.

What is Heaven really like? When my husband Ralph and I went to the funeral of a neighbor who was a Jehovah’s Witness, the description of the afterlife that we heard from the leader of the congregation was not one that we want to believe in. Ralph joins me in this episode to explain why and to give a much better description of the afterlife based on the teachings of the Catholic Faith and the Bible.
There is no joy in the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witness about the afterlife, no awareness of going to a better place, no point in dying. In true Christianity, with Jesus as a divine savior who took our sins upon himself when he died and whose resurrection gives us eternal life, there is a very important point in dying. In true Christianity, we die to be perfected. We die to become completely holy — purged of all that is not of God — to enter into the fullness of God’s love and God’s life – eternal life — which we can never completely understand and receive while we are still in our earthly lives with limited brains and limited understanding.
