Agreed. I knew I'd find some religious nut on here bringing this up, and sadly I was right. I wonder if this person would be happier had she been Jewish (or some other "wrong" religion) and then been tortured in hell AFTER she'd been murdered. I don't know why people have to impose their religious nonsense on works of fiction.
What an excellent question, Robert. The answer is "No, not at all." Scripture tells us that for believers to be absent from the body is to be present with the LORD. It is appointed unto man once to die and after that the judgment. Hebrews 9:27 In Romans 8: 35-39, we read: "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? ..... No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
All that being said, this story is fiction. If you read it as such, it's more about evil in this world: Susie's rape and murder and that of the other girls, the incredible suffering and anguish caused by that evil: for her family and undoubtedly the families of all murder victims, the loss of good things this life has to offer, etc. I just saw the movie last night: it was hauntingly sad and thought provoking and raised more questions than it answered ~ confusing in parts. I was touched by it though, and want to read the book and see if it answers some questions about the fictional story. For the true story of death and heaven, there are some excellent books, such as The Wonder of Heaven: A Biblical Tour of Our Eternal Home, and One Minute After You Die by Erwin Lutzer.
Forget about religion, this book doesn't even l line up with death. You don't hang around spying on people after you die, you don't even care about your own body, much less anyone else's living body. And, if you don't have a religion, you had better get one, you may not have enough time to when death hits you. Take it from someone who has been there and back, twice.
