From time to time I hear from atheists or other doubters in the afterlife, that the idea of “eternal life” is abhorrent.
“I can’t image not getting bored with endless life.”
That kind of comment simply shows the poverty of both their imagination and the shallowness of their view of the beauty and holiness of God. God, in the Scripture is intoxicatingly attractive AND he promises that we will not only have his forgiveness but that we will also have responsibilities that fit the largeness of the afterlife.
Biblical afterlife is not strumming a harp and sitting on some etheral cloud. It is life with the greatest, most captivating and creative being in the universe. He is the greatest lover, all powerful and completely trustworthy in everything that he purposes, even when we don’t understand with the finite amount of gray matter that we have in our brains.
“It is impossibe that our great God could promise us heaven and eternal life and allow that life to ever be boring!”
