According to a vision that monk Gregory who lived on 9th century had, a human soul must pass successfully 23 demons when it is departing from body. If a soul passes, it goes to heaven. At these moments every demon will accuse us for the actions that we have done in its name. Since our soul is our most important possession (not our health!!), we should have dissolved these defects to an extend so our soul will surely go to heaven.
