Barbara Walters presented a special program on Heaven last night. She and her team spent roughly a year to develop the program.

Her perspective on Heaven?

First of all, I think we’re all concerned about life on earth and if this is all there is. And because heaven has always been this wondrous, mystical place. Before we had airplanes and astronauts, we really thought that there was an actual place beyond the clouds, somewhere over the rainbow. There was an actual place, and we could go above the clouds and find it. There. Is there a place somewhere?

The program was fascinating to watch and the questions that she asked are the questions that many people struggle with during their lives. Is there something more to life? Is there a Heaven? What happens to me when I die?

Perhaps the most astute observation of the entire show is that Hollywood is a major player in the theology of the afterlife for people:

Many of us draw our most vivid impressions not by sitting in front of the pulpit, but by sitting in front of television and movie screens.

How sad.
