Do Dogs Go To Heaven?

So, you've answered your own question. That is always convenient.

But, what, according to your definitions, is heaven? In Judeo Christian philosophy, to go to Heaven one must acknowledge that Jesus is your Lord and Savior, the Son of God, and that He died for your sins. So how then, can dogs and mice and birds and the Chinese ever get to Heaven??? Do you assert that only pets of Christians go to Heaven, or also those herded by the Chinese? And if the latter, how so?

I agree with ManangCam, God created all things, so all living things have their place. In Heaven or on Earth. This is God's will and man cannot alter that. Man was given the CHOICE but animals do not. God does not ignore any of his creatures.God looks after us all.

Thank you. :chococat_h4h: and I am a big cat person!

1. What does being a "big cat person" have to do with the topic at hand??

2. What does God "creating all things, so all things have their place" have to do with the notion of Heaven?

3. So, animals kills to eat and live, but for many if humans do the same they are somehow "animals", yet both go to Heaven based on the same standard???

JackP, please clarify. Thank you....

I'd have to change a word or two here and there but yes!

(except my husband is the cat person, me? me? it's all about the dogs :))

I once heard this in Catholic School, after a student asked one of the Nuns. She said "Dogs go to heaven"... Now before all of you decided to burn me in oil, because there isn't anything that officially says this in the Bible, especially the Protestants, and probably Baptists, I would say yes.

Now we all know that all dogs and cats, to include plants?, all have some type of soul; but Its not the same type we're used to having such as a sould that can be cleanse of sin by prayer, and the power of the Confessional. Their souls can't appreciate the body and the blood of jesus, and the salvation that was promised to us.

However, God in his infinite wisdom created creatures that bring us pleasure, such as dogs, cats, and other creatures. Since God wants us to be happy in heaven, then yes that favorite dog or cat that brought us happiness in the mortal world will be raised again to accompany us in our long unending journey. Like one of my old Nuns said, GOD can do anything he wants, and so why not resurrect a favorite dog or dogs that once brought us happiness on this world

So YES, all dogs go to heaven as do cats, mice, rats, birds, and even your favorite snake.

I think that it makes just as much sense to say that we were created for their pleasure.
