    Some take the local bus that stops at every bus stop sign. Others take the express bus that stops at fewer bus stops. But to go right to heaven? You have to take a taxi, or Ueber, or Lyft,

    Heaven is a state of being, not a place.

    We all go on in God's spiritual worlds, but the gate of heaven is an awareness.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believes in a waiting area. The righteous preach to the wicked, and if the wicked can repent they get counted as righteous. Later on, however will they divvy* up the kingdoms. I didn't notice any problems with that and your scriptures.

    *The kingdoms don't get full.

    I don’t suppose you’d be willing to share how you acquired this knowledge...

    Well there are people out there that are highly anticipating such a thing. Unfortunately i am not one of them. I claim no such knowledge.

    No. :D

    Based on my experience, some of them hang out here for a long time... Especially, immediately after death...

    The rest go to a place more like what you'd think of as a Greek underworld... It's heaven, hell, and everything in between depending on where you want to go. Though technically, there is no heaven or hell -- just a place where the dead go. It's not much different than here, there's some good neighborhoods and some bad ones. :D

    Feel free to believe or disbelieve my statements though, I mean, I can understand the controversy and difficulty in regard to the subject.

    Wouldn't matter if I shared my method of "experiencing" the afterlife, I could tell you exactly how it's done and you still couldn't get there unless a being known as a psychopomp cared to show it to you. The living can't "cross the river" themselves, something else has to transport you, basically. Fundamentally, it's nothing more than meditation and prayer to the right beings to get you there. Then, it happens at their will not yours. So, even if you want to know, they may not want you to know. Sucks, but nothing to be done about it. :D
