So, I thought I’d start the month with a new blogging series; questions for Christians. Where I discuss religion and ask questions about various topics.
The place in the Bible that is supposedly free from all negative things – but also comes with a whole lot of problems. I have some questions for anyone who believes in the Bible.
Firstly, how could you possibly be happy in Heaven if your friends and family are in Hell? Do you actually care? Or does God just erase them from your memory?
Wouldn’t it be boring if everyone was ‘perfect’ in Heaven? If everyone can do exactly the same things then that means that no-one is unique.
What is the definition of ‘perfect’ anyway? If it means ‘free from sin’ then all in-animate objects are perfect!
Isn’t an eternity a long time? In an eternity everything that can be accomplished will be accomplished, leaving you with an infinite amount of pointless, meaningless existence.
Can you leave Heaven? And what if you want to be a God yourself? If the answer is that you cannot be a God, then I have another question: Heaven is a place where you become perfect and are supposed to be happy, then why would there be rules that you are unhappy with?
Do you exist up there only to worship your God? If so, your existence is pointless. If God needs to be worshiped, then he is hardly ‘perfect’, and if he only wants to be worshiped, it makes him sound like a tyrannical dictator.
Do the laws of reality even apply? With no illness and the inability to get injured, it seems as though Physics and reality don’t apply.
99% of people won’t get into Heaven. Why? Because everyone has broken at least one of the commandments. And if lying, stealing and murdering can be forgiven, why not a lack of belief?
Does God allow only good, moral people into Heaven, or just anyone who is a Christian? Life is not a test because he already knows what is going to happen, so punishing his creations for his own mistakes is illogical.
So those are just a few questions that either Atheists can use in debates to show the weaknesses and questions surrounding Heaven, or religious people can answer in the comments. I am hoping to get a few answers, just to see what different people think about it.
