When we realize that God punishes no one we lose our fear of damnation.
If God does not punish us there can be no hell.
What then of heaven?
Heaven is traditionally a reward for good works.
But if we think of heaven as God's Love, which is extended to everyone, we see that there might still be a heaven.
And as this heaven is not a reward for good behavior it might just be for everyone.
When we approach God our mistakes are forgiven.
Everyone makes mistakes.
It then becomes a matter of degree.*
But God punishes no one.
So all will be forgiven.
Even those we don't think deserve forgiveness.
So we may just see them in heaven.
*See Luke 7:41-43.
