Why heaven is irrelevant


I do not know for sure what heaven is supposed to be. People talk about it as a place that some go after they die. Since it is a place, I consider it to be the same as Japan, England, or Australia. Since I have never been there, I can make no assumptions of who is there or what is happening. What other people tell me or what is written in a book about it may be incomplete or inaccurate.

The definitions of what heaven is can be almost anything. It can simply be the sky. In that case I would like to know where in the sky. It can also mean some type of paradise.

The notion of heaven is usually connected with a certain religion. I do not think that this is necessary or rational. I also have never understood why I would have to die to visit whatever this heaven is.

If there is any action that I must take in order to go to heaven, I would like to know what it is and who else is there. I would like to try it before I buy it. Only then can I decide if it is for me.

I also wonder why I could not simply be born in heaven the first time rather than on planet earth. If I cannot figure out my life right now, then I am not ready for another one.

I have unusual thoughts on almost every subject. I am as Pro-Life as I can possibly be. I am strongly opposed to violence of any type. That includes rape, war, and (obviously) abortion. Everything I think, speak, and write must be filtered by the effect it could have on the lives of others. If I am in any way promoting violence accidentally, please let me know.

  1. Good questions. If you love someone and they are far away from you would you not desire to be where they are? We desire to go to heaven to be with God and those we love who have gone on before us.

    As for trying it before you buy it, I would suggest that if someone went into a wine store and said they want to try that $1,000 bottle of wine before they buy it they would politely be told no.

    God placed us here with difficulties so He could demonstrate His goodness to us. He has an ultimate plan and no matter how unfair or unjust things look now He can make all things right.

    The nice thing is that in heaven there will be no pressure to figure things out.

    God bless.

    1. I feel the pressure to figure things out in this life. Part of this is because I am not so sure that I am ready for heaven.

      I am also not sure if God exists or has a plan. If there is a plan, I question whether this plan was well thought out.

      And just because I love someone, it does not mean that they will be pleasant to be with in this life or the next.

      1. Well I am sure there is a God and He has a well thought out plan. But don’t think you have to figure everything out. That’s a lot to ask of anybody. Do your best.

        And I obviously meant that the person you love is also pleasant to be with. But you are right. There are some people we love but don’t particularly like.

        🙂
