Question 52.

Do animals go to heaven?

 

Answer to Question 52.

 

From images we have from the Bible there are animals in heaven, but we are not told anything on whether animals on earth eventually end up in heaven. We believe that only humans were created with an eternal soul so logically if animals don't have a soul then they don't go to heaven. But these are questions that we do not know so I can't give you a definite answer. Christ has given us some info on heaven but not enough to know even what happens to us humans.
