    same debate.....different terms

    so.....you get both feet into heaven
    and then someone makes an objection

    have you considered that possibility?

    Are you suggesting heaven is like Survivor and we get to vote people off the island?

    In that case there are a few people I'd be tempted to vote off...;):p

    I don't think there's going to be any bed-wetting, whining liberals in heaven.

    If we've read the same Bible, Heaven is filled with bed wetters and Jesus wouldn't have it any other way.

    I have no wish to fit in I am just me being me. If heaven exists and is anything like the way some Christians would like it to be,I wouldn't fit in at all.

    No.

    Actually, I don't even understand what you mean. "Someone makes an objection?" As in some form of angel gives witness that I am not worthy of paradise, would that be it?

    I guess I truly do not believe in those tales and therefore have no worries about how truthful they "could" be.

    "Not going to bother with it." is more like it.

    First, we can't judge the hereafter based on the terms of this world.

    Then, the Heaven is for the "Kind" people, they get along with each others.

    Third, God will purify the people of Heaven before He would let them in. Purified people get along with one another.

    Fourth, this whole topic is part of the details, it should be addressed after agreeing on the main topics, such as the existence of God and the completeness of the true religion.

    and yet you followed your first line with several others
    as if you have inside information

    and we have hierarchy in this life......a term
    I suspect Greater Hierarchy in the next life......on Their terms

    and it is likely we end up alongside others.....that think and feel as we do

    How else to be happy?
