Nice trolling :/. How would you feel If someone laughed at all your spiritual seeking and troll you on every thread for it? Is this what Christ is all about? Is this what he would do.. I think the Mods should really step in on this.

What exactly do you mean with "another world"?

There only is one world - the limits of our senses and our mind (spiritual intuition) divide it into 'seen' and 'unseen'.

The multi-verse maybe, but, it's entirely untestable by science and thus little more than some astro-physical chatter.

Not entirely untestable. Gravity might be able to leak from one universe to another.

Or is he asking if there is life on another planet or planetary system similar to ours?

With respect, I think that we should focus on the world in which we live. If we do right by this world, then the answer to whether or not there is another world will be sufficiently answered.

Heaven is the presence of God, so to speak. That presence is right here, right now; but unseen/unfelt by most. After death, one may be able more fully to experience that presence.

Heaven could simply be a different dimension, which we can't fully perceive till we die.

But to be honest, I don't know, because I haven't died yet.  Wink

In my opinion it is another nature of living. It is a different dimension for us and cannot been   understood by ourselves until our death. It is another form of existence, where people could be like angels and live without time and space.

A different dimension to what? Is it a place in the Universe? How is this spiritual world suppose to look like? Do you have unicorns, orcs, hobbits, and other things like that in there?

Not according to the Bible and Orthodoxy. Jesus has been there. Lazarus has been there(death). And a few others who have been resurrected by Christ were there also.

What exactly is the meaning of that quotation?

God is apart of creation, the universe is creation. The state of the Kingdom of God is impossible to fully describe in human terms. Therefore, we use allegories and metaphores in order to explain it.

There are accounts of Jesus Christ talking at length about heaven and hell, and I believe them. Your point?
