Hebrews 6 lists ‘eternal judgment’ as one of the foundational Christian doctrines, yet how many of us really understand how many judgments there will be, what the purpose of each of these is, who is involved, and when they are to take place?

In order to appreciate judgment, we must also consider the consequences of our actions and words in this life, the rewards and penalties. ‘Geography’ looks into the various places listed in the Bible, such as Heaven, Hades, Hell, Paradise and the Kingdom of Heaven. The Bible offers us a wealth of information about these locations, making it clear what happens when a person dies.
