    What do you think of Psalms 37:27?:)Do you think this talks about dwelling forever more in heaven after you die?

    I think it's a good verse, one of the Psalms which commands actions and tells what happens if they are done, an exhortation to goodness really. This verse is like part of Psalm 33 (LXX/Vulgate) which came before it, saying:

    "Come forward, sons. Listen to me. I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
    Which is the man who wills life, who chooses to see good days?
    Prohibit your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit.
    Turn away from evil, and do good. Inquire about peace, and pursue it.
    The eyes of the Lord are on the just, and his ears are with their prayers.
    But the countenance of the Lord is upon those who do evil, to perish the remembrance of them from the earth.
    "

    It also mentions the life of the world to come.

    That's all my opinion at least.

    It does not say "in heaven", so I can't know does it mean person lives eternally in heaven or some other place.

    It is the same message given by Yeshua in Matthew 3, in which you must repent (turn from sin), and do righteousness (do what is right/good), and along with Psalms 33, if you don't produce good fruit, you will be wiped out. This message was with the respect to the "kingdom" to come, which is spelled out in Ezekiel 37:22-28.

    Psalms 37:27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

    Yes. So faith and good works, right? ;)

    The word "faith" was not used in Matthew 3 & Psalms 37:27. The only "faith" involved, is that you act on knowing that there is a "wrath to come", which is to produce good works, after giving up sinning, or feel the "wrath to come".
