Heaven is better than hell
In the Bible, we are given some idea as to what heaven is like. God will wipe away every tear from peoples eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. God Himself will be there and be their God. He will be on His throne. A pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, will proceed from it. There is a tree of life and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
We are also told some things about hell. It will be a place of outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. There is a lake of fire burning with brimstone and unbelievers will be thrown into it alive. It is described as a place where the worm dies not, and the fire is not quenched. God's wrath will be on souls for eternally.
From my little understanding, heaven seems much better than hell. I want to be with God in heaven forever. So I have given up my life, repented from sin, received Jesus as Lord and Savior, and now I seek to obey God, love Him, and love others.
Choose heaven. It is better than hell. Save yourself some pain.
What do you think about heaven and hell?
