My Incomplete Thoughts of Heaven

When it comes to ambiguity, people prefer to fill in their own blanks. They can't be satisfied with blanks. If God says something is good, we need to decide in our heads what is good and what is bad. I personally hate dark chocolate and coffee, which I am aware of a lot of people that love both. So when they are told heaven is good, or heaven is great they think it will have a lot of dark chocolate and coffee (which may become my hell). I think I understand why our human minds do that, I think it's because that is the peak of our pleasure here on earth, so we just assume heaven is a continuation of the greatest moments we have had on earth.


I used to think, "I really can't wait to go to heaven, but I sure hope that I don't die a virgin". I had no imagination or faith that the God who created sex could make something better than sex or even better than our five senses.


"If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the gospels, it would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us,like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in the slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by an offer of a holiday at sea. We are far to easily pleased." -C.S. Lewis
