When we die as a believer in Christ do we still go to "Abrahams Bosom" or do we go to Heaven?

No jehovahs witnesses, Mormons and SDAs please.

    This is R & S and is open to everyone. The Bible does say that some people will go to Heaven but it says most will live on a paradise earth forever. It says that wicked people will be destroyed but not face Hellfire as many are erroneously taught. Fire often means eternal destruction when used in the Bible. Read Psalm 37:9-11, 29. It talks about God's purpose for the earth. The Lord's Prayer does as well. It says "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven." Have a good day.

    The whole "Abraham's Bosom" idea was developed from a single parable of Jesus found in the Gospel of Luke: the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. Preachers who are desperate to squeeze whatever they can out of the Bible developed this entire concept from that one passage whose literalness is obscure. The N.T. talks about a resurrection, but it's hard to determine whether it believes in consciousness continuing between death and resurrection. Paul did say "To be absent from the body is to be present with Christ", but, again, it is obscure: did he mean he'll immediately be in Christ's presence when he dies or is it because the elapsed time between death and resurrection will seem immediate?

    The book of Revelation talks about souls in heaven, but you have to remember that Revelation is highly metaphorical; it's not trying to give you a literal description of heaven.

    So, without leaps in logic, the clearest answer you can deduce with certainty is that the writers believed in a resurrection at the end times. What happens between death and the resurrection is nowhere clearly disclosed.

    Oh great, when I die I get to go to the deity who practiced genocide on his own children or to the guy who attempted to murder his son Isaac because a genocidal god told him to? Not much of a choice. I plan on ceasing to exist at death.

    When you die you rot in the ground like everyone else.

    You just die. There's no evidence for an afterlife.
