Heaven - is it fun ?

58 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So what do people expect when they get upstairs ?

What about all your favorite stuff you do now - will ANY of it be available or will you just sit on god's right hand ?

Do you sleep in heaven sometimes or do you just float around near the ceiling of your old home, watching your widow/widower romping with their new significant other ?

Are there guns in heaven ? Dogs/cats ?

Just what is on offer ? Or is it just better than the other place - which sounds like a negative sell to me.

A bit like freedom from pain is nice, but just sitting here pain free isn't a really good vacation menu

What do you reckon goes on all day and night up there... eating ? No - what's the point ?

Color brochures are not available so it's hard to decide - I reckon it's a negative sell like out hotel is boring but better than next door which is noisy

C.S. Lewis : "Joy is the serious business of Heaven."

To give a serious answer, which is probably not a good idea but I will do it anyway, anything good about earth will look like a faded, tarnished version of what heaven is. People who imagine it to be a boring place have a much different view than someone like me. If the heaven I believe in exists, it would be a mind blowing experience to our minds as they are now. It's not all about rewards but the experience. Some of it is not conceivable to me. "Forever" isn't even conceivable to me, whether on earth or in heaven, I can't understand time going on "forever" and it gives me a very weird feeling. I don't have all the answers to how I think it will be there. But it won't be boring.

I am afraid you are not giving me the slightest clue here

You say it will be great but you have no idea why ....

Sound like the buzz from cocaine where people feel great but they have no idea why....

ok if forever is too hard, describe the first day - or night...

How was your first day ? what did you do ?

Is it like cocaine but without the adverse health problems ?

(Serious answer) If Heaven is truly that, then, upon your entrance, every pet that you ever had during your life will come running to meet you.

(Other answer)

Osama bin Laden was finally wiped out by a U.S. daisy-cutter, and he appeared at the Pearly Gates. He demanded that St. Peter let him in so that he could collect his reward for being true to his faith. St. Peter consented.

Almost immediately, George Washington appeared and slugged bin Laden flush on the jaw. Thomas Jefferson clubbed him over the head with a baseball bat. Alexander Hamilton smashed his knees with a tire iron. In turn, 69 other Early Americans pounded and pummeled bin Laden thoroughly and at great length.

When they stopped, a dazed and battered bin Laden turned to St. Peter and asked, "What was THAT all about?"

"Osama, weren't you listening?" said St. Peter. "I TOLD you that in Heaven, you'd be greeted by 72 Virginians!"

I do know why. I debate whether I should really share everything I'd want to. I don't feel like you are sincere in your question, so I don't want to sincerely write everything I believe about it in this thread, if it's used to mock.

George Wallace got to the pearly gates and rang the bell and a voice said "Whazzup dude ah hear yo ! who am dat out deah anyways ?"

George said "Oh never mind"

So every pet I have ever had will be there ? Imagine the poop bags !

and every girlfriend ? and their husbands ?
