The end goal of Buddhism is enlightenment or 'Nirvana'. This is NOT Heaven. Enlightenment comes when you become non-self or nothing. When you truly cease to exist, you have reached Nirvana. Mahayana Buddhists believe in a wonderful afterlife Paradise where they can spend time learning how to reac…h Nirvana. Of course, once Nirvana is reached, they cease to exist. This is the goal of all Buddhism. Non-Self. ( Full Answer )
Same reason as the first expedition, and other similar expeditions: in the expectation of making money.
Christopher Columbus wanted to go to India for riches and supplies. He asked King Ferdidnan and Queen Isabella if he could make his voyage to India because he thought the Earth was round. They agreed and supplied him with his goods. The People of Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe didn't know about… the Americas so when he discovered them he thiought he was in India because the Native Americans had darker skin like Indian people and that is why he called them Indians.

Columbus was born in Genoa (now part of Italy) but lived in Portugal and later Spain. With backing from the rulers Ferdinand and Isabella, he sailed to the Americas (West Indies and northern South America) while seeking a shorter and safer way to reach the Far East (India and China). In 1492, he bec…ame the first European to travel to the New World since Leif Ericson around the year 1000.

From the perspective of a reformed Jew, we really don't know. Orthodox beliefs, also, regarding what happens after death are thatwe don't know 100% what happens. However, the most common theory ofwhat happens after death is that when we die our souls go through aperiod of cleansing which can last up… to 12 months, however, it'sbelieved that almost no one does enough bad in life for thisprocess to take the full 12 months. After this, we either return toGod to wait for the world to come or we can possibly bereincarnated as a person. . Answer: One of the central beliefs of Judaism, as stated in the Talmud(Mishna, Sanhedrin 11:1) and codified by Maimonides (1135-1204), isthat the soul continues to exist and is treated in accordance withthe person's actions while he or she was alive. This applies to allpeople, whatever their religion. The Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) doesn't dwell at length on the afterlife;and nor does Judaism spend a lot of time speculating on itsdetails. However, that is not meant to diminish its importance.Rather, the Torah implies that we are to use the bulk of ourenergies in keeping God's ways in this world, with our feet firmlyplanted on Earth, while nonetheless not losing awareness of ourbeliefs. Our ancient sages stated the importance of being aware of the nextworld: "This world is a mere entrance-hall before the afterlife"(Mishna, Avot ch.4). All outstanding accounts are settled after this life. Some casesillustrate this point, since this entire world wouldn't be enoughto reward a Moses or punish a Hitler. And while we're alive,knowledge of the future world serves as one of the motivations tokeeping God's will. The Tanakh does not delve into detail of the rewards of therighteous because religions could compete with more and more poeticpromises. Also because belief in the afterlife was shared by allancient societies and needed little reiteration. Besides, it wouldbe like describing the colors of a sunrise to someone who was blindfrom birth. It is, however, referred to briefly in Torah verses such as Genesis15:15, which states that "You (Abraham) will come to your fathersin peace and will be buried in good old age." Coming to his fathersdoes not mean simply to be buried with them, since Abraham was notburied with his ancestors. Such verses are stated many times. The prophets are more explicit with such references (see Isaiah26:19 and 66:24, Daniel 12:13, Zechariah 3:7, 1 Kings 8:30, 2 Kingsch.2, Ecclesiastes 12:7). The afterlife is spoken of at length inthe Talmud. More than 20 pages of Talmud (Sanhedrin 90-110, RoshHashanah 16-18, and other passages) are given to this subject. ( Full Answer )
The Southern Baptist Convention : http://www.sbc.net/ is the best source of information regarding the Baptist denomination.. (From sbc.net). "Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained …eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.". The way most Baptist do it is they feel conviction for their sinful lifestyle, and admit to God that they can't save themselves, and that only through Jesus' sacrifice can they be redeemed and forgiven. They ask for Jesus to become the Lord of their life, and ask for forgiveness of their sins. Then they resolve to live the rest of their lives according to God's laws outlined in the Biblical scriptures.. A great verse that basically sums it all up is Romans 10:9 it says: That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord ," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.. The two greatest of all commandments are found in Matthew 22:37-40; 37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'

Absolutely not. There are quite a number of Christians who do not have a church to go to - this does not inhibit their relationship with God since He is everywhere they go. Some people (I would never know who, nor would I judge) who go to church do not believe in God either. Going to church does not… make one believe or not believe although most Christians are members of one church or another. Believing in God is a matter of personal choice - of being sorry for all wrong (sin) and turning to Jesus Christ as the only savior and then living for Him. This does not require a church and many believe and give their lives to God outside of church. But once you believe I think you would want to go to church. In a church you can get Christian teaching, have fellowship with like thinking people, be encouraged in your faith, grow. The metaphor that Christians are all members of one body is used in the New Testament - see 1Corinthians 12. So part of the body cannot function on its own it is not complete until it is with other parts of the body. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Columbus never went to north America, only south America. The guy who went to Florida was looking for the fountain of youth, his name was Juan Ponce de Leon.
India, and when he got here he thought he had made it, and that is why a lot of people use the INCORRECT term of Indians instead of Native Americans. It is because Columbus thought they were Indians.
Columbus landed on an island called Hispaniola. He never got to North America nor knew it was there. He thought he landed in India so called the natives "Indians." He made 3 more trips all in the area of the Bahamas and on his last trip he was shipped wrecked with his son for nearly 3 years before t…hey were rescued. He was a mean greedy man who failed at what he set out to do. ( Full Answer )
The thinking of the time was that there could be a water route to Asia so various people, including Columbus, began to look for a way to get to Asia to bring back trade goods. Columbus was also after riches and fame. He never did get to Asia and only found an island called Hispaniola with no gold an…d a few natives. He thought he landed in India and never knew about North America 90 miles away. ( Full Answer )
He never got there due to the fact that he landed in the Americas thinking it was Asia. He wanted to go there because he was going to get silk and spices. Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand told Columbus that he could go.
he was going to India to find the northwest passage between India and China (known then as Cathay)
He wanted to find a really fast and easy trade route to the Indies, or Asia. The Indies had a bunch of spices, which Europeans did not have.
My opinion is that Christopher Columbus really didn't go to Asia. Amerigo Vespucci found out. (Also John Cabot lied)
he went on expeditions to search for a Northwest Passage (all water route through or arround North America)
Columbus never went to Canada. He never set foot on the Mainland of North America, he was only in the Caribbean Islands.
Animals and unborn babes that die, animals are less spiritual than us, and babes couldn't know who God was. God still has a heart, I have heard that there is another heaven fit for them, not the same as our heaven but fit for them, like its located somewhere else.
No. You have to believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and confess your sins to him, but you might want to save those type of questions for a priest or minister.
No, it's a bit more involved than that, even to the most basic theology, Consider that Lucifer believes in God, but there is no more place in heaven for him. Satanists largely believe in God; he's just not their team captain.
Columbus mistreated his men and the native Americans. he murdered mative men and reped and burned the women and children. he then paraided the dismembered bodies through the towns. oth him and his brother were arrested and shipped back to loose their titles and prestige.
Columbus thought he was pioneering a back way to China or Japan - he thought the world was much smaller than it is. He ended up in what is now called the Bahamas on his first voyage.
Yes he most certainly did. To the very King of Spain.. He also went to the King of Spain and the Queen to get the money he needed to pay for his expedition. The Queen made the deal.
If he did it was probably to ask us for directions to America. No secret we found it 500 years before him, we just didn't go boosting about it. Leiv Eriksson was too modest.
On his first voyage in 1492, Columbus was trying to find a passage to India. Instead, he encountered the Caribbean Islands. In his other three voyages, Columbus was still trying to find a route to Asia, somehow going across Central America. He never succeeded.
Columbus was trying to find an eastern route to India when he ran into the western hemisphere instead. This journey led to the discovery of the New World which later was names the Americas.
It took about two hours to go one foot! Slow poke! YOU STINK YOU PEOPLE!
Columbus went on the expedition to find riches like silk, spices,paper,and jewels. But Columbus did not actually get to the Indies. (that's in Asia.) he landed in north America.
yes! He did. Queen Isabella and king ferenand paid money for his voyages if he would bring them wealth from India
Christopher Columbus went on his journey because he heard about the riches in India and wanted to find a quicker route to India (instead of walking which was dangerous because of robbers). When he tried he found San Salvador (off the coast of Florida) also part of the US.
Jehovah's Witnesses take this number in Revelation as a literalnumber who will enter heaven. However, this reflects a very poorunderstanding of the writing of Revelation which, as all Biblescholars know, is written in symbolic apocalyptic writing and notto be taken (especially regarding numbers) abs…olutely literally. To the Jew (and Revelation was written by John - a Jew) the number12 is very special. It is numerically the smallest number with agreat deal of factors (eg 1,2,3,4,6 and 12 are all factors of 12)and thus it was regarded as something very special (12 tribes ofIsrael, 12 disciples and so on) to the Jewish writers of the Bible.Even when Judas Iscariot killed himself the remaining 11 disciplesfelt it necessary to elect a replacement - in Matthias - to bringthe number back to the original 12. The '72' whom Jesus sent out asevangelists to the surrounding villages preparing them for Jesus'coming are numbered 6 (ie half of 12) times 12. Thus, in Revelation, this perfect number 12 is reflected in thenumber of people in heaven:- 12 times 12 times 1000 (to signify amultitude). Thus, symbolically John here is stating that in heaventhere will be a multitude, but that multitude will be perfection.We are not talking about numbers here but about God's love andgrace in making heaven a place where everything, including thenumber present there, perfect. Sadly, many Jehovah's Witnesses have not really thought or prayedtheir theology through, accepting unconditionally what their eldersand the watchtower society tell them. When asked once about someonewho 'deserved categorically' to be in heaven, one JW I knew said'Mother Teresa', as the epitome of a Christian lady (although shewas a Catholic and not a JW!). Yet when I hypothesised that if shewas number 144001st in line whether or not she would be allowedentry, the JW could not answer. If he had said 'yes' then histheology was suspect; if 'no' then he judged Mother Teresa to benot worthy of going to heaven. That is the problem with taking, asthe JWs do, Revelation as literal; you get into all sorts ofproblems. Better still to accept Revelation as it is - asallegorical and apocalyptic, and leave the judgment and numbers inheaven to God alone, and not to second-guess him - for that is theheight of arrogance and ignorance. The apostle John wrote: "I heard the number of those who weresealed a hundred and forty-four thousand." (Revelation 7:4) In theBible the phrase "those who were sealed" refers to a group ofindividuals who are chosen from among mankind to rule with Christin heaven over the coming Paradise earth. (2 Corinthians 1:21,22,Revelation 5:9, 10; 20:6) Their number 144,000 is understoodliterally for several reasons. One is found in the immediatecontext of Revelation 7:4. After the apostle John was told invision about this group of 144,000 individuals, he was shownanother group. John describes the this second group as "a greatcrowd which no man was able to number, out of all nations andtribes and peoples and tongues." Rev 7:9,14. Note the contrast thatJohn draws between verses 4 and 9 of Revelation chapter 7. Hestates that the first group, those who were sealed has a definitenumber. However the second group a great crowd is without adefinite number. With that in mind, it is logical to take thenumber 144,000 to be literal. If the number 144,000 were symbolicand referred to a group that is numberless, the force of thecontrast between those two verses would be lost. Thus the contextstrongky indicates that the number must be taken literally. VariousBible Scholars past and present have reached the same conclusion.British lexicographer Dr. Ethelbet W Bullinger over 100 years ago;"It is the simple statement of fact: a definite number in contrastwith the indefinite number in this very chapter." ( The Apocalypseor "The Day of the Lord page 282) (Robert L Thomas Jr, professor ofNew Testament at the Master's Seminary in the United States wrote:"The case for symbolism is exegetically weak. He added: It is adefinite number at [7:4] in contrast with the indefinite number of7:9. If it is taken symbolically, no number can be takenliterally." -Revelation: An Exegetical Commentary, Volume 1, pg474. The Bible does not teach that all good people go to heaven. Acts24:15 says "There is going to be a resurrection of both therighteous and thr unrighteous." Psalms 37:29 says " The righteouswill possess the earth, and they will live forever upon it."Ecclesiastes 9:10 says "Whatever your hands find to do, do with allyour might, for there is no work, nor planning nor knowledge norwisdom in the Grave, where you are going.

Answer 1 I am a christian and I think so I mean what kind of God would he be if he sent good morale people to hell simply because they don't think the same things as you or me. Answer 2 It entirely depends on your belief. Of course, Islam will claim that its believers do go to heaven. Most Chris…tian doctrines claim Muslims will enter hell because they refuse to recognize Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

HE believed he was going to India, and that is why we call Native American's "Indians" though it is very wrong. Hope this helps!
Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior and Redeemer of mankind. They believe in the Old Testament prophesies about him and the New Testament account of his earthly ministry. They believe that he suff…ered and died on the cross to atone for our sins. Mormons believe that salvation comes only through Jesus Christ to all those who have faith in him. They, like all Christians, look forward to the time when Jesus Christ will return to the earth, as promised in the Bible. Unlike other Christians, Mormons also believe that Jesus Christ visited the people of the Americas following his crucifixion and resurrection. The account of this visit is found in the Book of Mormon. You can learn more about what Mormons believe about Jesus Christ at the "Related Links" below. ( Full Answer )

Why do sailors go anywhere with anybody? A variety of reasons, one would suppose. 'Why not?' The adventure. A job. Money. Promises of wealth from the supposed Cathay. Boredom, Are there any actual records of reasons given, I wonder
He wanted to find an all-water route to Asia by sailing west. He was right that one might reach Asia by sailing west but he did not know that the continents of North and South America lay between Europe and Asia. What he accomplished was of far greater significance in the long run.
