    Smile Will it be waiting for you in heaven?

    Scenario:

    (Bart was attending Sunday school.)

    Bart asked the teacher, "Um, ma'am, what if you're a really good person, but you're in a really, really bad fight and your leg gets gangrene, and it has to be amputated. Will it be waiting for you in heaven?"

    Questions:

    Q1: Can I rephrase the sentence I hightlighted in blue as below? Is it Chinglish?

    Will you go to heaven? (=Will it be waiting for you in heaven?)

    Q2: Does 'it' refer to God or meaningless in the sentence written in blue? I think it is meaningless because it should be 'He' rather than 'it' if the writer refers to God. Am I right?

    Thanks in advance!
