If the afterlife gives life meaning, then what gives the afterlife meaning, and why can't that be the meaning of life? Why does meaning require eternity?
I received some comments like these on my portrayal of heaven:
"It would be an eternal state of love, happiness, and joy, next to God."
"It would be like a big party."
The bible says you will be worshiping God for all eternity. If that's so wonderful, then why don't you worship God 24/7 in your life right now? If this "state" of love, happiness, and joy is compulsory, then is it truly you? Doing anything - even partying - for an eternity would eventually become a torment. Quadrillions of years might as well be a microsecond.
