Riley and Christopher contemplate the question of Heaven and Hell. Is there a Hell? Where is it? Is it the underworld called “Sheol” in Hebrew or “Hades” in Greek in the Old Testament translated “hell” in the King James Version of the Bible? Or is it in the Valley of Hinnom (Gehenna) in the New Testament, also translated “hell” in the King James Version of the Bible. Is it a place where the wicked go after dying or is there such a thing as a living hell on Earth? What about Heaven? Is it above? Is it on another planet called Kolob? Or is it on Earth? Is there heaven on earth? It isn’t obvious whether or where Heaven or Hell are, but contemplating these questions can bring peace on Earth.
