    A radio Catholic priest the other day mentioned that he had envisioned heaven as a giant electric train set when he was a little boy.

    As a man age 55, here is heaven pictured in my mind as follows:

    There must be a beautiful tropical sandy
    warm, sunny, clean beach in God's heaven with date palms, crystal-clear warm water and gorgeous, young slender love partners with nice tans. There must be cotton-candy clouds in the heavenly blue skies. There must be a nice gleaming white fishing boat on the gentle blue waves with a regal black German shepherd on board to observe over the pulpit for flying fish all in His Kingdom.

    This would be a true heaven to die in the flesh for and be in this sandy salty paradise forever.

    That wouldn't be too bad if the evil god character in the Bible was absent, although you can keep the trainset!

    The hypocrites might probably be in hell. In regards to all the TV evangelists, my uncle once said hell is going to be full of "preachers".

    I think of heaven as being like The Shire but with a full range of biomes. Everyone can pursue their hobby or labor, the land speaks of the new and the old. One can go wandering and have adventures if one sees fit. Or one can stay at home and watch the seasons change. At night we can experience the thrills of various epic stories on TV especially of tragic tales from times gone by.

    I am absolutely sure that evil character is actually not there. The boogyman and santa claus all gone. Just reality. Except for flying reindeer. Those are real. FB_IMG_1512403585571.jpg

    Reminds me of a joke (slightly adulterated) One of the RF members dies, goes to heaven, comes back and appears to @David T. Of course David is amazed but still manages to ask the decease if there is RF in Heaven.
    "Good news and bad news," he says.
    "The good news is that there is RF in Heaven; the bad news is that you are posting there tomorrow!"

    it is said that there is alwAys 1 serial killer in the crowd. I decided it was BSM1 and had to kill him.!

    He then went to hell and there davidT was playing his misplayed 3 cords blissfully happy, and BSM1 was forced to listen for an eternity!

    DavidT thought he was in heaven to stupid to realize he sucks at music and he was the devil.

    So be good BSM1 or you get to listen to my playing for an eternity.

    As a kid the idea of Santa gave me the creeps, ( I seen a very scary guy dressed as Santa) so I insisted my parents brought my presents up and left them by my bed.

    You’ve just described a paradise on Earth, not in heaven. An Earth-wide paradise, this is God’s purpose for mankind. — Psalms 115:16

    Remember, “Thy will be done on Earth”?

    Something else God will do, is Isaiah 11:6-9.

    So there are no sandy beaches for the good and holy when they die? No regal black dogs? No boats? No tan, slender attractive young lovers? Just halo-clad winged angels picking harps?
