Heaven and Hell are not originally a Jewish concept (Wikipedia). The ideas were adopted into Judaism sometime in the 3rd century BC. Prior the mention of a place where the dead go was the name of an actual valley, Gehenna. The place became symbolic of hell because children were sacrificed to Moloch in the region. The concept of a battle between good and evil is demonstrated in some of the stories.
The truth is the dead don’t go anywhere. They are here, out of body, until they reincarnate.
The concept of heaven and hell are Egyptian in origin. In Egypt there was no belief in reincarnation. When you died you spent eternity happy or in torment dependent upon your obedience to Ra. The Egyptian magicians knew when Moses was going to reincarnate however.
The conflict in the philosophies of Christians, based in Judeaism is this; if Satan punishes someone for disobeying God, is he an enemy or ally of the latter? The answer again lies in Egyptian religion. Ra and Anubis are not enemies – Anubis is Ra’s MF. Anubis enforces Ra’s wishes. When applied to Judaeism the problem becomes that God is supposed to represent good, while Satan represents evil. The beliefs were perverted by an outside influence.
The Ten Commandments given to Moses on the mount are very similar to the commandments in the Egyptian “Book of the Dead” . Moses was continuously tormented while wandering in the desert, never brought to the promised land. The Jews weren’t allowed to settle until he died. He refused to cut off the foreskin of his child unlike Abraham. Could it be the one who helped Moses perished in Egypt and the givers of the law were Egyptians playing as his buddies after he left?
