Quote# 20065

So what do you think that the New Earth will be like? Views on the celestial city of Jerusalem?

Personally, I have a few ideas about it. Most have scriptural backing. I believe that we will be able to communicate with animals. I believe that we will be able to instantly teleport ourselves anywhere (possibly anywhere in the universe), I believe that Jerusalem will be an orbiting city (a pyramid, or cube.. a sphere fits the dimensions of 1500 miles X 1500 miles, but you can't really build a wall around a sphere. A pyramid seems to be more likely, with tiered levels for our golden mansions, and the temple of God on top. Imagine that, with waterfalls running down the side as the lake flows from the temple of God. It would be amazing. The foundations of the pyramid would be all those different stone mentioned in Revelation. THe 12 stones, and then the 12 gates of pearls. We will either get to the city through teleporting ourselves, or by flying (or even ascending on Clouds as Jesus did.. the Bible says we will be like him).

And you accept this all on faith, which is better then actual evidence.

The description of New Jerusalem disturbingly fits with a Borg cube

Hope that helps,

LOL, no wonder you people are so easily duped. Oh yeah, god said to give me $1000.

Sounds more like a helicopter ride over Las Vegas.

Ok, I've typed this after reading the first line, and before I go any further I'm betting there'll be fucking gold things mentioned in it.

<reads on>

Yup, once again, gold. Mansions, in this case. I'd hate living in a gold mansion - as a real life analogy, I saw a gold mobile phone recently, costing in the hundreds, and I thought it was the tackiest thing I ever saw. Does it matter if it's solid gold or imitation? Fuck no. It looks like tacky shit either way. And it sure as hell won't get a better signal than the regular model.

@ Brain-in-a-Jar: I've always been puzzled about descriptions of streets and structures in heaven being made of gold. I mean, what's the point? If there is no commerce, no need to prime the economy, etc., then gold has no more intrinsic value than any other shiny rock.

And this is less crazy than \"72 virgins\" how?

I was warned about acid flashbacks in the 70's.

ohhh...Will we get jet-packs and our own pet dinosaurs too? Can I put a pre order in for a triceratops?

I never really got the attraction to gold. I mean on the small scale it can be pretty, but an entire wall made of gold? THat just sounds ugly to me.

But will you be happy there for all eternity? Living in a gold mansion will probably get old after a few years.

So heaven is a RPG?

I believe that we will be able to instantly teleport ourselves ...

I believe I'll have another beer.

I think you´re eager to get out the closet and admit you like Sci-Fi.

I think the \"New Earth\" will be a huge disappointment as it will never arrive. Myopic Fundies will keep polluting and otherwise abusing the earth and try to cover their deeds with the claim that their God is going to create a \"New Earth\" any day, then they die, no \"New Earth,\" no after-life in paradise, just death.

That's IT?

They claim their gawd's capable of feats most awesome, and the best they can come up with is a pyramid fountain, as the epitome of gawdliness?

You sure you didn't steal that out of a fantasy novel?

He got that from a literal interpretation of the bible?

Well, I didn't mention the crystal sea, the tree of life with the river running through it (I imagine it to be like Teldrassil or something). I didn't mention the new animal creation, the new universe, the new earth. I don't know what they would be like. I am just thinking of the coolest thing I can imagine in my head, and it's probably still going to be infinitely better.

Dude, if this guy's right, and heaven is just like Bespin, I'm converting right now.

So god's name is 'Ra'? Horus?

the Bible says we will be like him (jesus)

Dead?

If you can't build a wall around a sphere, you must suck at geometry pretty hard.
