The Perfect Place to Go After Death

Influenced by what we observe, we choose to preach the observations that we agree with.

Here's my view on the next stage. If there was a heaven I wouldn't want to go there for eternity. I wouldn't want a conscious mind that went on forever. Just take vision for an example. If you were just a pair of eyes that could observe anything would there be any differences between looking at emptiness forever or looking at an infinite amount of pictures forever? Would there be a difference between feeling happy forever or having a wildly-ossolating-never-ending-emotional rollercoaster ride?

There was no suffering before we were born and I would hope that I could return to that state of not being anywhere or anything.

13-15“No one has ever gone up into the presence of God except the One who came down from that Presence, the Son of Man. In the same way that Moses lifted the serpent in the desert so people could have something to see and then believe, it is necessary for the Son of Man to be lifted up—and everyone who looks up to him, trusting and expectant, will gain a real life, eternal life.16-18“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.19-21“This is the crisis we’re in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God. Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won’t come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is.”

My idea of suicide is crazy too. For those who take their lives, they get to regret that action for eternity. but not in a suffering way. They are given a short memory span of just enough time to regret that action, and won't know how they've been there. But then again, it's not fair to be punished for eternity for something we did in a finite state of time. My thoughts are always contradicting.

im not sure i agree 100% with what you are saying but it is an interesting thaught to say the least. i would like to think that there is a place that i may see the ones i have loved and lost. i have friends that have commited suicide and as a cristian its hard to phatham a place called heaven that didnt include these people.
