Q. Is it possible to go to Heaven without having a religion?

Q. Is it possible to go to Heaven without having a religion?

A. Going to Heaven is to a religion as mastering arithmetic rules is to a school. This is like asking if it is possible to learn arithmetic rules that are usually taught at school without going to school. We can see many people master their favourite subjects by teaching themselves or through home-schooling without going to school.

I think that it is possible if we try in the right way. A religion itself is not Heaven but only an institution in which we can learn how to go to Heaven, just as a school itself is not arithmetic rules but an institution for teaching and learning them.
