Thanks for the response.I don't speak for all Christians but for me (as a newbie), the descriptions we are given are comforting enough for me to be reassured that heaven is going to be far better than anything we can conceive of or compare to on earth. Heaven is a place of “no mores.” There will be no more tears, no more pain, and no more sorrow. There will be no more separation, because death will be conquered according to Revelation 20:6. The best thing about heaven is the presence of our Lord and Savior according to 1 John 3:2. At least for me personally, that's more than enough to hope for. Maybe a reason we don't get a full description is because all "the old things will pass away". We can't really comprehend it. I don't expect this to satisfy your curiosity but that's my personal perspective.
It seems heaven is a personal experience for each Christian as both you and Vytas said 'I can't speak for all Christians'
I know you love jesus but being with him, what does that entail? Do you just sit there? I mean eternity is a longg time so I'm just thinking would life just be spent existing in a stress free place? Doing what...
Also there is an emphasis on death...why is death so important to Christians?
For me, everything dies. Plants, people and animals all die. So why does death solve everything for you guys? Why is the death of the body important when it's just a cover/casing for the spirit which is who we are...
