      For once to ascend into heaven , they must rid themselves of Sin,

      which means that they are tempted by sin no more.


      Understand of truth makes this possible.

          To not believe in sin is the Goal.
          Truth shows the natue of sin which leads to not beliieving in it.

            That goal has been attained, quite easily, in fact.

            The problem is, I also don't believe in a heaven. smile

              If truth did not show it to you
              Why then is it a problem.?

              We here and see the things that are and the things that are not.

              So to argue about what is and isn't is vain.


              Now Truth show the nature of all things , so you know which belong where.

                It isn't vain at all, it's important to understand what is reality and what is delusion. Mankind has been driven by religious madness for centuries, much of the world is still driven by those myths and superstitions, a path that has only served to deliver the state of the world we now live.

                All this for pretending to see things that are not. smile

      When abiding in heaven I think the correct paths will be laid out for us in a more clear way, and as we will be given a godly understanding of things we will have every oportunity to reconcile for our misteaks, and will be more apt for recognizing them as they occur. Conciquently we won't be inhibited by such things as pride, jealousy, or anger.

          Now is the time for our trial, to be tested and tried. We learn through experience, our integrity becomes revealed as we go through mortality. In order to become glorified resurected beings we have to obtain a body, live and die, so we can rise again to eternal glory. It is so God can put us where we belong, after he makes his final judgment.
               Think of your existence as a bodyless soul with the ability to theorize what it would be like to experience a sunny day yet you would never truely know what one would be like if you never actually felt what one was like, not only this but you wouldn't know what a rainy day would be like in contrast. We have to know what it is like to have joy, sadness, and everything inbetween.
          And it is all at the risk that we either abide with God or are fooled into a path of darkness, yet our free will is more important than death to us and God.

            In other words, you have asserted a statement that you can't back up, and then you get angry at the inquirer, and pretend that you are behaving like an imaginary savior--by backing off.

            The truth is that your delusion has collapsed, and you are not honest enough to admit it.  You choose, instead to become frustrated and angry.  I'm sure that is exactly what Jesus would do.

            ...Oh,  have a nice day.

              In truth there is NO sin in heaven, never was never will be.
              We do not go to heaven.
              we are judged here on earth as per the book of  Revelations and we are given spiritual bodies. Remember jesus in his spiritual body said, "have not flesh and blood".  Flesh is corruptible and in the spiritual body, fleshly temptation is dissolved away and is not a problem or an issue.

              I don't think he said something he cannot back up, he just chose not too. Jesus did not engage in fruitless argument he instructed that at certain times to brush the dust off our feet toward those that have not faith to believe or those that choose not to believe the words preached. Your inference which you insist is truth is just your unfounded opinion that you purport to be truth when in fact, i believe it is a misconception. This is how stubborn people can be and sometimes disciples of jesus do brush dust off their feet.

              have a nice day

      I'm not a Christian anymore but when I was I understood it this way: You can't sin in Heaven. Once you get to Heaven you get a new body and a heavenly nature that cannot be corrupted. It would be impossible for you to sin and, as there is no temptation in heaven, the idea wouldn't even occur to you.

      As an atheist I realize how boring Heaven sounds. Having fun ALL THE TIME would get old really fast and spending all my time bowing and praising doesn't sound fun either.

      I guess in heaven God will give you a very sound spanking if you sin, but He will still forgive you because the blood of Jesus Christ is still effective in heaven.

      Remember how one goes to heaven? This is how he stays in heaven.

      However, having the entire heaven and the heavenly hosts to learn that you got a sound, good, almost-never-happen-in-heaven spanking would be quite embarrassing I think.

      Then there might be a nickname such as he-who-was-spanked-by-God-Himself, and in heaven everything lasts forever...

      That is the reason why you are put on earth temporarily before your real place of eternity in the spiritual world (either Heaven or hell), it is like a training place for you to recognize and choose your free will. If you have exercised your free will to love God and receive Jesus in your heart, the next step is Holy Spirit will come in to transform you from inside out. With the Holy Spirit in you, it is a start of your journey being the child of God, righteous being. You will still always be bestowed with the choice of being a Free being, Free will, you may still make wrong decision but Holy Spirit will guide you out of your situation and put you back on track. In short, Holy Spirit will seal your salvation until you would make it to Heaven.

      In heaven, all beings still have the Free Will, Even Angels also have the Free Will to choose. Remember one third of Angels chose to rebel God and being cast down to earth as Fallen Angels.

      Yes, we have been created by God with Free will, because God loves you and I as much as like how God loved Adam and gave him freewill to choose to love God. God knows that if Adam was not given any choice but to choose God only, then that will not be love at all. Adam chose to disobey God and ended up giving Satan a chance to reap off Adam from his rights. Since God is holy, He cannot say no to Satan for Adam made a very bad decision. Unable to keep a very simple request by God as a rule to keep Adam on the right path (you see, God made it very simple for Adam - Just don't eat from that particular tree and you will not sin. Simple?), Adam allowed all future human race to be born with sins after sins. But like all loving Father, God quickly devised an ingenious plan and transformed Himself as a man called Jesus. God then died for us after being very badly tortured and humiliated. Unknowing to Satan, since Jesus was not from Adam's blood line but from God Himself, Jesus was never born a sinner. But He was crucified! Hence undoing what Adam did wrong at the Garden of Eden. God suffered in pains so that there may be a way for us to be saved and for God to continue to release His blessings to us. Since Satan, being in spirit form and was an arch angel, continues to criticize people to God in the Heaven, Jesus has become our sole defender in the Heavenly realm. Through worship and by showing respect to God (e.g. praise His name and tithing), Jesus can further defend us in Heaven by grading us with a + or ++ sign so that Satan cannot find any excuse to prevent God from blessing us. God created hell for Satan, and God will do much to prevent backsliders from being tricked by Satan to join his cohorts in hell. Ultimately, you'd get to choose where you want to be.

    Was it Mark Twain who wondered why people who hope to go to heaven don't spend more time preparing to live there?
    People who expect to go to heaven mostly believe that people of all races (who are also believers!) will go there, but do they hang around with people of other races? For the most part, no.
    They imagine that they'll float around playing harps, but do they take harp lessons? Nope.

    [56:25] As a reward for what they did.

    Let me share what Hindu mythology and beliefs state.

    Extraordinary good deeds done on earth = reward of stay in Heaven for a specified period to enjoy the fruits of good deed.

    Extraordinary evil deeds done on earth = punishment of stay in Hell for a specified period to suffer the fruits of bad deeds.

    Both these will end once the excess karma is evened out and the soul has got to take rebirth in this earth.

    If one sins in Heaven, one has to definitely undergo a punishment and this punishment, according to Hindu Mythology is a re-birth in earth (before the stipulated period the enjoyment period in Heaven ends).

    Moksha (salvation) is a state to be aimed and attained by every human being and it is a state of birthlessness. It happens when one has no balance of karma or desires to be fulfilled. Thus a stay in heaven is only temporary. Even that enjoyment becomes short lived if one sins in Heaven too.

    I don't believe in the traditional view of heaven and I don't think that we jump straight from Earth or the physical plane straight to Heaven, it would be too much of a shock, going from Earth where sin is all around us to Heaven where sin is impossible is just too much for our brains to comprehend, we can't imagine how it would work or even be possible.
    I believe there are different planes of existence or dimensions between Heaven and Earth, let's say 20 just as an example, each one being a slightly higher vibration than the last. A higher vibration means, in general terms, more love and less sin. Here at level 20 (the Earth) we can't even imagine what Level 1 (Heaven) might be like. Once we reach say Level 10 we would probably have a much better idea and by the time we reach level 2, Heaven would seem much closer and maybe attainable for us.
    I think it's a learning curve, as you learn each stage the next stage begins to make more sense. Trying to comprehend Heaven from Earth is like sitting a university exam for Nuclear Physics having never learned anything about it!

          well litework, i appreciate that and sorry if i offended you. before thinking of heaven and dimension ,i think ,one should try to comprehend reality and think rationally, otherwise what ever we think will only be imagination and good only in the realm of stories not existence..

            Thank you Jomine. That's a very good point, it's important to be grounded in reality before we start to look at heaven and spiritual concepts or we risk becoming spaced out and being unable to use our ideas in the real world.It's something I have difficulty with myself and I find it very hard to get the right balance because I think it's also dangerous to become too focussed on reality and the rational, and then we run the risk of losing touch with our spiritual side...

      interesting you said vibration. If vibrations are the core of planes. What is a voice? but mere vibration

      Genesis 1:3   And God SAID, Let there be light: and there was light.

      to expand on the 'we go to heaven' theory:
      Revelation 21:1   And I saw a NEW heaven and a NEW earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were PASSED AWAY; and there was no more sea.

        Revelation 21:2   And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming DOWN from God OUT of HEAVEN, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

        Revelation 21:3   And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is WITH MEN, and he will DWELL WITH THEM, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

      so the holy city landed on the new earth and God is with men and shall dwell with them there.

    If your question about sin in Heaven has to do with life today then I can only say from speculation "I'm not really sure but I'm guessing they have some degree of Free Will because Satan was able to get them to rebel against God."

    In the New World, The New Universe sin won't exist because he who fostered sin (Satan) will not be allowed in that realm and we will not think as we do today be cause God said he was going to give up a new heart which I take to mean one that doesn't foster greed, hate, and all the other evils we have today."

    I think it is difficult to think about, because we can't imagine anything past this earthly form. I think it was Paul that chastised people for misunderstanding. If I remember, he compared this form to a seed. It bears little resemblance to the full grown plant. Sin won't be an issue. Most sin is due to mortal desires. We'll be spirit or energy. No egos. Not much need for sin in that form.

    I could be wrong, as always.

      I think you are on to something by what you said in your first sentence;

      "I think it is difficult to think about, because we can't imagine anything past this earthly form."

      So, the last thought or feeling a person has is their eternity.   If they believe in Heaven and believe that they've led the "right" life, then their last thoughts will be entering the pearly gates.  If they are a Viking, and lived the Viking code, then they will feel themselves entering Valhalla.  Same for Happy Hunting grounds.   If a person believes they will be with their loved ones, then they will.

                  That is true for each person that sees the person that just past away.  But the last thoughts and feelings that a person had when they passed away is their eternity. 

                  Picture two people moving forward together with respect to time.  They see each other and interact with each other.  Now lets say that one person dies.  The other person continues to move forward in time and sees the deceased person stop living and goes to "dust".  The person that died cannot think past their point of death ... the last thought they had is their "eternity". 

                  I heard that as a person dies, their brains release "endorphins"??? which produce "near death" experiences.  If a person is not revived, then what they experience at that time is their "eternity"

      In China, the greeting is "Have you eaten?", food being a problem at many times in China's history.
      In the Muslim countries, they wish each other "Peace" but that is the one thing they are not going to get for as long as they are subject to that religion.  Only the ones who escape to the West get any peace (and a big backyard and a barbecue to boot!)

    The Burden of Disproof Fallacy is not allowed in science.  It is up to people claiming "after-lifes" to provide positive proof in favor.  We are not ignorant shepherds any more.  Even the greatest philosophers of the ancient world were doing their thinking before we had any good notions on the nature of matter.

    After death, your molecules will be chewed upon by maggots and bacteria, and released into the air as carbon dioxide.  This may end up in plants, animals or even new people.  All of your mass down to the bones will completely disappear, since the process of putrefaction makes you gaseous.  If our atoms end up in other life, it would be a farcical sight to see some God with a sick hobby of bodily resurrecting people, pirating atoms from already living people until they resemble a piece of Swiss cheese, and reconstituting a "sinner" only to cast him into Hell.  Only, are those really OUR molecules?  How do we really know that what this God is resurrecting is really you and me?  We can't know.  On practical grounds, it makes no sense.

      It takes humility to find the truth. If you think you know before you even attempt to look, you will certainly be disappointed.

    You go to hell of course... and if you do a rightous act in hell you get sent back to heaven, and that leads to complications like an infinite loop and lobotomy.....

    Here is some of that love.

       When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are about to enter and occupy, he will clear away many nations ahead of you: the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. These seven nations are all more powerful than you.  When the LORD your God hands these nations over to you and you conquer them, you must completely destroy them.  Make no treaties with them and show them no mercy.  Do not intermarry with them, and don't let your daughters and sons marry their sons and daughters.  They will lead your young people away from me to worship other gods.  Then the anger of the LORD will burn against you, and he will destroy you.   (Deuteronomy 7:1-4 NLT)

    How much more love do you need!

      Sounds like fun, Earnest.

      Now, here's an analogy:

      If a son of yours was caught in an automobile accident, would you rush off to the car junk yard to attend to the broken automobile? Or would you go to the hospital to see your son (flesh of your flesh)?

      God doesn't care about these temporary vehicles called Homo sapiens. They are a very necessary vehicle, but the child of God within (flesh of His flesh) is what is truly important to Him.

      Don't blind yourself with the wrong details.

      If there were other cars that endangered your children, wouldn't you tell your children to shun them? Wouldn't you attack those cars if they threatened the lives of your children? Wouldn't you want to see their drivers held accountable?

      There's plenty of love in the passage you quoted. You're merely looking in the wrong direction.

        No love in a psychotic solution. I've seen the analogy before. It was full of holes then too! lol
        Nor is killing a solution for an omnipotent entity. This is psychosis pure and simple.

        "Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge!  Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you," says the LORD.  "Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction".   (Jeremiah 50:21-22 NLT)


        Why in all that is sane, would a benevolent omni anything god be in need of advocating solutions which any man should understand as the lowest possible moral denominator.
        It's a no-brainer!

        Neither, automobile accidents never happen because people just have to pray to God and their prayers are instantaneously answered in the affirmative.

        lol

    Jomine, I apologize for not seeing this forum sooner. Very interesting question.

    What happens to those who sin in heaven?

    Perhaps we already have our answer in Genesis 2-3.

    Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Heaven and got escorted out. But you can't take the stuff too literally. God said Adam would die on the day he ate of the forbidden fruit, but did he literally, physically die? Genesis 5 says he went on to live to the ripe old age of 930.

    Big questions: Was the "Adam" of the Garden of Heaven the same "Adam" of Genesis 5? Perhaps yes and no. The Adam in the Garden was spirit. He died spiritually. And could the Adam and Eve represent the spiritual you and me?

    In Genesis 5:2 it talks of Adam being "them" and both male and female. Here Adam is the tribe of Homo sapiens -- all of humanity.

    And the outrageous longevity of the early patriarchs? Code for the real longevity of the eponymous tribes. Though the ages seem outrageously long, they are actually far too short. Humanity has been around far longer than 6000 years, and Genesis has the clues to resolve this.

    So, what happens to those who sin in heaven?

    First, we need to ask, what really is heaven? Just as Adam did not die physically, but spiritually, the Garden of Heaven is not a physical place either, but a spiritual one.

    Is heaven a state of mind? More likely it is a state of spirit. And the death of Adam was the spiritual death of turning one's back on one's spiritual nature and following the laws of physical reality, instead -- being a cog in the machine (effect) rather than master of the machine (cause).

    That "original" sin leads to spiritual blindness and the long sleep of spiritual death.

    Getting back to heaven is merely a matter of waking up the spiritual self, forsaking the master of this world, ego.

    Well, that's the distillation of my first 60 years of research (this lifetime). If you want a better answer, try back in another 60. wink
