For me personally the phrase doesn't bother me. I find it a little comforting. Although it can never replace having the person there with you physically. I understand the point, I went to a Christian school and when talking about Heaven it was always up.

Our loved ones are our guardian angels after they die.

1 John 5:13 "I have written these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life."

Yeah.  I always wonder about some of those things.  When I was in my Catholic Highschool, they talked about how if you didn't go to Church every Sunday, you wouldn't make it into Heaven.  My first thoughts went to, "so, because I had a life threatening injury and had to have surgery on Sunday (missing Mass) to save me, I don't get to go to Heaven."

There are so many things like that that don't really make sense yet so many just do them anyway.  I figure if I think about someone who has died, that's the same as going to their grave because, as you said, why go if they can see me all the time?  I feel like if you want to visit the grave, do it, if not, don't.  Really the only thing that visiting the grave, or bringing flowers to put on it does, is show others who visit the grave that others care about this person.

I hear ya.I was brought up a catholic and remember being taught if u died with a mortal sin you went to hell.I always thought that made God look wicked he would do that to his creation.And eating meat on Friday was considered a mortal sin.I remember thinking,im going to burn forever for eating a ham sandwich???

What nonsense!!Plus the masses were said yrs ago in Latin.You had no idea what was being said.They changed that now and say them in English and they still make NO sense!!Bring back Latin!!!LOL!

That is a funny truth.  Not something ya ever really think about.  Your soul goes to Heaven. It always hurts my heart and makes my brain angry when I hear non-believers say when they die it's over...ur just done.  What would be the point in doing anything than?  Without faith life would be meaningless.  Now on the other side of things when someone dies and people say... well they're no longer in pain.  They are in a better place.  How do we know that? If that person wasn't saved than that's not my idea of a better place.

You only go to Heaven if you are saved.  If you are not saved you go to Hell.  Why would someone who does not believe in God go to Heaven?  As for no longer being in pain, again, only if they were saved.  If they were not saved they are just now experiencing real pain.  I think it just makes people feel better so they say it.  But if you tried to tell the ones remaining the truth then everyone would get mad at you and say you were a horrible person.

I think people use it to comfort others that have lost a love one.

I agree, just because it feels like they are writing off your grief. Nothing helps, least of all claiming you are being watched.

I believe that your soul lives on and yes that phrase may seem a little far fetched but our body's (the shell) is no longer here but our souls remain whether it be "up there" or "around us" .. they are still with us watching over us. Something to look forward to I guess, we will find out one way or another...lol

I agree with that...but we also tell kids to be good cos Santa is watching them.That isnt the truth....correct?But they do it out of tradition for Xmas which in itself isnt supported by bible.

So if u support bible why dont u just agree what God told Adam?You will go back to dust.He never said anything about going to heaven or hell.He told Adam u will go back to dust and dust isnt life!!And the other examples that show death is a state of non-existence or sleep as Jesus said before he resurrected Lazarus.He said he was asleep i will awaken him.And then Lazarus came to life again and spoke of no heaven or hell cos he didnt exist while he was dead.

The bible says Jesus wept when he heard of Lazarus death.

He shoulda been jumping for joy instead if he went to heaven.

The bible is also clear on NO man has entered heaven.Jesus was only man to do so.

Glad to always support scriptures to those that wanna see them.Ive already put them up in other topics but just a friendly reminder.

The Genesis scripture is talking about the human body. Those who knew and loved the Lord....their spirits are in heaven. 

Since the Bible teaches that Heaven is God's throne, and the earth His footstool, I understand looking up...not to China, to a heavenly kingdom.

Our departed loved ones looking down is for comfort after losing a dear one. I lost my son. I don't look up, I just cry when I think of him. Almost 5 years now, and it never gets "OK".
