. . . Heaven would be like earth, but without grief and pain, like a mellow, holy utopia.
"Would be" . . if, what? If people would quit making it hell?
Seeing how God is "so great", then it is not His fault, which leaves us as the cause.

You are incorrectly inferring what I am implying, which I am at fault for not being more descriptive.
I'm saying Heaven would be like earth in the sense of it containing all the type of stuff that makes the earth go round, except Heaven would be
perfect: there would be no need for monetary gain and no one would want to harm others' well being for personal gain because there would be no bills
. In a sense, Heaven would almost be communist, which when practiced on earth, leads to the exact opposite the idea proposes.
And you are right to a degree, as mankind is the cause of most of the pains of the world. The earth was a playground, but it has been so perverted
that we have to pay to use the slide and swings. But, even so, in this day, God still makes His presence known, we just have to have open eyes to see
it. For instance, you wake up 10 minutes later then when you usually wake up. You are late for work. You then hear on the radio that a huge accident
happened on the route you take to go to work. Was that coincidence, or chance? Depends on what side of the fence you are on to really answer that.
Like I said before, people would be singing songs of glory and praise to Father constantly because they had the opportunity to look back upon their
lives and see how God's hand at work both discreetly and in the open. People would finally fathom how deep Father's and Jesus Christ's love runs for
us, and there would be no other thing to do but sing with all your soul and heart of thanks and appreciation.
And no problem Akragon... Somethings that I have noticed on this website and this forum is that we tend to debate about the details, which I am guilty
of as you can remember when you and I first started talking on these forums, when the majority are looking for the same thing. It says a lot about the
human nature, but it's a beautiful thing.
