What Will Christians Do In Heaven For All Eternity?
Christians concoct many different scenarios about what they’ll do in heaven for all eternity. None of them make good sense. Will they eternally play golf? Baseball? How about hockey, football, or even rugby? Boxing anyone? What about bear hunting? Hey, guys, how about having everlasting sex with a harem of 70 virgins? Oh, sorry, wrong religion. Regardless, what if YOU were part of a harem of 70 guys for some nymphomaniac in heaven who is just as ugly as YOU are? More seriously, what about being in a prostate position eternally worshiping God? This just seems boring to most Christians, that’s all. I can hear some of the saints in heaven now:
Hey, God, can I get up and do something productive? Do you sincerely not want me to do anything now that I’m here? Doing productive activities is self-fulfilling and makes me happy. Let me do something, please, anything. Can I at least get up and stretch, or go catch up with the “few” family and friends of mine that made it here? If nothing else, your wonderfulness, can I go to the bathroom?
So most Christians envision they’ll be given other worlds to rule over by God when they die depending on how well they behaved here on earth, even though I can hear murmurs of dissatisfaction: “Hey God, you said you forgave all of our sins so why does that guy get a bigger world to rule over than me?” However, if believers are given their own worlds to rule over, just who do they think they’ll rule over? Will these creatures have free will and will they also rebel? Will the ruler of each of these worlds have to be crucified as Jesus was in order to save them from the wrath of God? I can’t imagine believers signing up for a future excruciating crucifixion when they signed up to be in heaven. But if the creatures to be ruled over don’t rebel then Jesus was a failure as a ruler over his world. I know I know, “ours is not to question why, ours is but to do and die.”
