what i mean is like when we go to heaven will god place us all in different occupations like here on earth. like if you are a wood craftsman god will send you to a place in heaven with big trees,,,if you are a fisherman he will send you to a place with big oceans full of fish.. if you are the maytag repair guy he will send you to the land of washing machines and if you are a politician he would put you in a big white room with nancy pelosi for eternity!!! scary thought

so what do you think??>> will heaven be just one big game of tapping angel wings for an eternity??

And I guess if you're a Catholic priest, you'll get sent to woodlands.

With little woodland male nymphs being at your beck and call and offering their "services".

Remember the movie, I think it was called "What Dreams May Come"? I was told by a lot of Christians "That's it!" What, slipping on paint?

Well, do I have a choice? Also, what will be my physical condition? The same as when I "went out" at age 97, decrepit and falling a lot, or as I was when I worked a sawmill greenchain at age 22? But my mind wasn't as developed then as it is now, so can I pick and choose components of my past? How's about that time in the university bar when that REALLY HOT CHICK was checking out my well-sculpted greenchain muscles? Now THAT would'a been heaven, by any man's definition...

And then there's that potentially terrifying (as in: "I'm bored to death!") aspect of having to remain exactly the same FOREVER! Remember now, friends: forever's a long LONG time!

Well, I don't believe, but if I do somehow end up in Heaven, I'm bringing my slingshot and a bucketload of ball bearings. About the only thing I can think of to do in Heaven that won't get boring after the first millennium is plinking angels out of the sky.

i would like to know what the hell are we all going to do in heaven for eternity.. 60 percent of me believes in some sort of life after death. but not the life that the holy scriptures speak of.. i don't believe in just one all governig god that always was and created all the mater in all the univeres.. it's the other way around in my book. all mater in all universes,dementions, space time, has always existed.. gods are just addvanced intelligent lifeforms that have evolved like all other things that change in time.. if we humans were not so greedy and selfish we to thru technowlogy could become gods as a species over long periods of time...but i truly doubt that we can make it in an organic phyisical mater as a whole!!!! we will annihilate our species before we even get out of the womb

the universe is estimated to be 4.7 billion light years old based upon the expanding mater, galaxies, big bang theory.. so just that number would suggest to me that their are numorous intelligent lifeforms that are billions of years more addvaced than say us humans.. so now imagine intelligent life forms that are googolplexes of years ahead of us humans. now we are talking gods!!! those advanced life forms have learned to manipulate time and space to suit there needs,, but even they are bound to the laws of infinity. and would be considered specks in a demention that is bigger than any lifeform, {god} could even comprehend..

when we die as individuals we enter another demention and the real maze begins.. but as a species as a whole we are doomed, never pull it off!!!

If and when are definitely the two key words here as some of us will go to heaven and some won't ,the when for me ,could be as soon as possible as it would be far better than the world we live in now. What we will be doing is hard to say but if it is serving the Lord and having love and peace all around with clean air to breathe,what more can one ask for in the afterlife.

Jesus Christ tells us, that most people are headed for Hell. He also told us, that heavenly things are beyond are human understanding. He did say, no eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9

So will there be 'Free Will' in this heaven?
