Sex In The Kingdom
So, I'm just curious what Christian theology says about what the afterlife is like in heaven...
In Islam, apparently you can get 72 virgins.
Do we get to have 'bodies' in heaven? What body do we get? The one that we had at death? A new one? If it's a new one, is it an adolescent one, or an adult one?
What about those who die as infants? What about those who die as a fetus? What about hermaphrodites?
Or are we just 'spirit' in heaven, with no physical body?
And what about sex? Can we have sex in heaven? How can we have sex?
Is everyone sterile in heaven?
Do we have to be married to have sex in heaven, like we do on earth?
If you're a widow, or a widower who remarried, then you've got 2 sexual partners?
What if you're a widow, or a widower, and you remarry, then die and go to heaven? Can you have sex with your first spouse?
What if your 2nd spouse on earth remarries after your death? Then can you have sex with your 1st spouse? Or must you wait for your last earthly spouse (who remarried on earth) to come up to heaven so you can have sex with them? What happens when your last earthly spouse's 2nd spouse dies and goes to heaven?
I'd really, really like to know just what kind of a 'logical' system 'the greatest conceivable thing' has got in store for us in heaven.
Any ideas, anyone?...
I keep asking myself " Are they just playin' stupid, or are they just plain stupid?..."
