Do you believe in Heaven AND Hell or do you believe in just Heaven? This question was just posted on Facebook and Twitter in an effort to poll as many people as possible. I think (but of course I could be wrong), that the vast majority of people believe in Heaven but most do not want to believe in Hell. I find it fasicnating to hear how people can reason a belief in one but not the other.
Perhaps you don't believe in either, that would be a third choice. Please tell me your thoughts on the subject and why you believe that way.

Many years ago, I had a friend that told me this story -
Being young and perhaps a bit naive, she traveled to Washington D.C. to join the C.I.A. She wanted to serve her country and felt that she could make a difference. Before C.I.A. had gone very far with their interview - my friend was told that she would be fitted with a diaphragm and would be expected to sleep with people to get useful information. My friend was a religious woman and this went against her moral code - so she politely thanked them for their time and she went home.
My question is - what would you have done? If the nation's security was dependent on the information that you could obtain - would you do as she was asked?
