I came to ask this question reading some books on Buddhism.
In Buddhism, although there are many people believing in magical power of worshiping Buddha,
it is widely assumed that that is just one way of achieving nirvana and there are other more
nuanced higher levels of understanding of the central teaching of Buddha.
I'm curious if there are such divisions in Christians too.
Specifically, I'm wondering if believing in literal description of heaven and hell is considered
only possible belief or considered "lower" level understanding of the Bible.

Where Buddhist do not believe in Any God , but they do believe in unseen Spirits world , Where Christians do believe in the Living God and know Him personally, and they do believe in the Spirit world ... Where God is a Spirit with substance, God is also a God of perfect love .... There are Good Spirits who honor God and abide with God under His authority and God keeps them safe.... Then there is dark evil spirits who rejected God and dishonor Him , where God disown them and rejected them ..... This a description of Heaven and hell ..... All people are lost to God and not one will go to Heaven at their departure of life on the earth ...... BUT .when People give their lives to Jesus and turn from evil through Prayer and accepting the Plan of the authorship of Jesus By His Words then Jesus will prepare a place for people to be part of Him and live in Heaven at the end of their lives forever more as He will protect the soul of man and keep the soul of man which is the lives and memories of life of the person or there eternal being ...... Buddhist believe in life after but they come back again and again as a different being to the earth .... Christians will not come back to the earth , but will live in Heaven in profound spirit realm of Heaven were there is no pain , no deformities , no day and night , no evil, no hell, but spend their lives in happy bliss forever
