Since no one is bothering to actually answer your question, allow me to take a shot.
link is actually very real. He's a metaphor. In many stories, legends, and mythologies, he is the personification of death, though he makes no judgment on your eternal soul. He, like death, simply is, and he, like death, simply exists to take 你 away from this life. He doesn't shepherd 你 to Heaven, Hell, 或者 Limbo. He just shepherds 你 into death.
In common modern perception of Christianity, it's link who guards the gates to Heaven. While God alone judges 你 and where 你 spend your Afterlife, it's commonly believed that it's St. Peter who possesses the 列表 and the knowledge of whether 或者 not 你 may enter the gates. Scripture has him as holding the keys to Heaven (link), but this image of Peter as a gatekeeper has been embellished 由 cartoonists, joke-tellers, and modern pop culture.
In truth, it's not explicitly stated either way. Many believe 天使 carry 你 to Heaven, and demons drag 你 to Hell. Many believe 你 don't know until 你 get there. Many believe 你 don't get carried 或者 dragged anywhere, but spontaneously awaken there upon the moment of your death. Who's to say, and who can know, until our own times come.
To answer your 问题 as best that I can, is this: I believe that we are met 由 the ones that we loved the best and 给 a choice of whether we wish to stay and watch as life continues on around us and leave later 或者 continue on to what awaits us in either our version of heaven 或者 hell. I believe that heaven is what we would make it, as hell would also be. Myself, I would choose to stay and watch ovet those I care about and try to help is some small way, if I can. I hope this has helped 你 in some small way. I do not practice 基督教 either, rather I am a Wiccan, but do not let that sway your decision in whether 或者 not my answer has any value. Have a wonderful day.
