Heaven and Hell were never real. This was created only to scare people into believing in Christianity or forcing them into it. Back then's people and today's people will misinterpret the bible, when the whole bible was written by the white man. So, you have New King James version... well what was the original version? And that's the question we have at some point and time...

Well the Concept of God and Heaven always has been more of a Answer to the Question "Why are we here", "What is the Meaning of life" As far back as you look, Humanity with its deep thinking, Has unlike other species. Questioned its utter existence, Said questions result in other beliefs that are said to provide evidence. I do not doubt that many have used their ideas to simply justify Violence and Destruction As seen with the Terrorist group ISIS, That uses its beliefs to justify the Atrocities it commits.

However I also do not doubt that many Religions often provide a safe haven with various tools to help succeed in life. Many need the concept of God in order to Guide them, While others Simply put. Can Survive without a belief in a Creator. Said belief in a Creator is not wrong or Right, It just simply is. As long as their belief does not discourage other people or devalue people simply for not following the same Ideology, Then Said belief is not wrong to believe in. because after all, It is just a Belief that provides Comfort. Such as you may used Video Games or Music to combat the realities of the world or the daily struggles, They to use the Religion as a form of Comfort.

A verity of reasons why they would use it for Comfort could be explained to, That ether they feel the need to use Religion of Guidance due to possible struggles or need to not be seen as just a piece of History in time with no logical narrative to it, That is nothing once you perish from this world. So Humanity believes in Narratives for many reasons upon. Said reasons also create the idea of Heaven in which is a ever lasting Paradise. However the concept of Hell comes to the very question "Would Bad people be allowed in a Paradise?", " Would Adolf Hitler or Genghis Khan or other villains in History be in a Paradise?" The Answer to that is a unknown, But to the ideas of Religion, The answer would be a No.

Religion can be used to justify Destruction, So can other things such as Social Class of Wealth or Ethnic Race or Age. In which practically anything can be a justification for War. However just because it can be used as a Justification, Doesn't mean it always will. Many Hinduism in the mountains of China are very peaceful people that really re frame themselves from Violence. It is not known if Heaven Exist or Not, However I surely believe it provides closure and sanity to some.
