Thanks bud.

Although I did change it to black and white. It looks a little less glamourous, but it's more supportive for me when I debate over Hollywood millionaires. To get back on topic...

Thank God for a band like U2.

Ah! Thanks for the Avatar change! Much less confusing now.

I am HORRIFIED to see that I spelled John Lennon's name wrong. Me! The BEATLEMANE!!!

OK, back to the topic....NBC, there you go with the scripture again! LOL! But what do you actually DO in all this light other than feeling loved...? Or is it like you are in a permanent drugged state....lying there feeling blissful?? I want to know!

I wouldn't characterize it as being drugged, or lying in a blissful state. It appears that we are fully functioning, walking, talking people in perfect bodies. We praise, worship and sing to God.

All I can suggest is to think of your favorite thing to do, then realize that it would be boring/unsatisfying when compared to heaven.

Anyone giving you more detail (outside of Scripture) is trying to sell you something.

Does this mean all these books we find in Christian book stores are useless?

Or are you speaking specifically about books that are suppose to suppliment such as the book of Mormon, etc?

If so, what exactly is wrong with any of these if they don't contradict anything in the scripture and don't claim other laws or gods?

I'm not sure why we always go to the extreme here. There may be some "worth" in a book if it can point you to the places in Scripture that speak of Heaven.

Or there can be texts too that reflect on Scripture, ethics, or relationship with God that can be helpful. The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran is a great example.

Sorry I didn't mean to come off as making fun of your comment, I was seriously curious. I do know people who invalidate all books except the Bible so I was curious.

Fair enough. It can be hard to balance between books that help lead you to Scripture and books that take Scripture and lead you away to an author's own interpretation.
