Heaven

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. -Rev.21:1



I was pleased to see this article from Time posted online. It is an interview of Bishop Tom Wright of the Church of England, as he dispels some of the myths in Western culture about what Heaven is supposed to be like. As explained in the interview, some of those myths come from a non-Biblical view of the afterlife, some from literature, and some from the Bible being quoted out of context. I don't agree with everything in the interview, but I like seeing the myths being questioned.
