    In fact there are 12 gates around heaven. Three on each side. They represent the Tribes of Israel.

    Certainly it is not to keep the people in who are already inside the Pearly Gates, because I am quite sure they do not want to leave. So it must be to keep the ones OUT who are not to be allowed in.

    Which will you be?

    Maybe it is to keep the sinners out, or to keep those inside safe, or its a metaphor which describes a place we must unlock within ourselves.

    Well to keep out all the bad people of course. Besides, it looks really impressive and you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

    I guess it's the same as a door on a house-a place to enter. But..It could be symbolism as well.

    The only gate to Heaven is Jesus Christ.

    it works as a reminder to those who believe in Heaven, that they are not yet 'in'...
