HEAVEN IS GOING TO BE SO BORING!!!
So I take a Death, Dying and Religion class in school and yesterday my Professor assigned a Funeral paper. We are suppose to plan our own death and write our own memorial service. Can you imagine? Honestly I loved the idea, but a lot of people in class especially the females were flipping out. One girl was crying and said I am only 19, I can't imagine dying in the next 6 months. I was laughing out loud throughout the whole class, because a whole lot of people seriously could deal with the reality of "death" I wanted to take her by her arm and shake her and let her know, "You are going to die, like die, like you will be deader than dead. You will cease to EXIST. Accept it and Believe it". But anyhoo I digress...
So in the olden days when I was still living in darkness I wanted to go to heaven just so I could avoid hell and it's extreme hotness but right now the boredom of heaven seems worse compared to the "hotness" in heaven. But miss ttolla reminded me about this topic yesterday, honestly yall what are we going to be doing in heaven for an eternity? Praising and Worshipping God for eternity? It's almost as ridiculous as the muslim one of 70 virgins, honestly yall lets think about this for a second. So as a good christian, you die, you go to heaven, judgement day comes and you pass blah blah blah. Then you go to sleep, you wake up then you go worshipping the almighty, maybe they'll assign ttolla since she's a newbie to be in charge of "cleaning the drums" and maybe they'll assign honey91 to be in the choir etc. My point is this, what kind of "afterlife" will this be? Can you imagine waking up everyday to "praise and worship"? Am even going to assume that we will be allowed to "sleep", but who knows we might not be allowed to sleep, the almighty might require his daily dose of "praise and worship" 24/7.
I've always had this theory about why Devil rebelled against God. Lucifer/Devil was known as the choir leader right? He had the most beautiful voice, so it would stand to reason that maybe he got tired of singing for the almighty everyday and managed to persuade 1/3 of the disgruntled angels in heaven to rebel with him. Because think about it, what kind of charisma/charm could lucifer have possessed that he managed to persuade a whole "1/3" of all angels in heaven? It stands to reason that there must have been something more that motivated the angels to follow Lucifer and I believe that it was probably the need to stop "praising and worshipping" a God for eternity. Honestly we need to think about this, if indeed there is a heaven and there is a hell. Then do we seriously want to spend an eternity praising and worshipping God? I mean even here on earth, a whole lot of us can't stand to be in church past 4 hours or we begin to melt.
As for hell, how is it possible to burn for eternity? Am assuming that we wouldn't be getting any sleep while in hell so that would mean we would be walking around "burning"? Do you know how many people would be in hell by now? Almost 50 billion human beings since the creation of earth, and you mean to tell me 50 billion people will burn for eternity? So lets say we burn for the first 1000 years, don't you guys think that after 2000 years of burning a whole lotta people would become "numb" to the burning? And lets say we don't become numb, so we just burn for eternity? And for what purpose? We humans did not ask to be created, God being all knowing knew we would fail, so what is the point of all this like honestly? "I don't believe in an afterlife, so I don't have to spend my whole life fearing hell, or fearing heaven even more. For whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse". In closing, I came across this quote and it made me laugh.
"Jesus hardly made the greatest sacrifice. He knew he would be resurrected anyway." Meaning, how was Jesus death a sacrifice, if he knew that he would be resurrected three days later?? Merriam Webster's dictionary defines a sacrifice as a ": destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else b : something given up or lost.
So my point is, Jesus hardly surrendered anything for the sake of something else, he knew fully well that he would be resurrected.
