World Religions Day 3
On the third day we discussed the idea of an afterlife, heaven, hell and purgatory, as well as enlightenment and reincarnation.
We also discussed other faiths ideas of an afterlife and students shared some of their opinions and ideas about what comes after death.
Most of our discussion was based on visual pictures of the afterlife that represent the different traditions.
After our discussion I read excerpts from the Oxford Guide to the Bible about:
-where we found out Hell is a real place where fire, death and horrible smells really are the case...or at least were at the time.
Gehenna today (Valley of Hinnom) outside of Jerusalem.
