"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life"

Father God, thank you for the love of the truth you have given me. Please bless me with the wisdom, knowledge and discernment needed to always present the truth in an attitude of grace and love. Use this blog and Northwoods Ministries for your glory. Help us all to read and to study Your Word without preconceived notions, but rather, let scripture interpret scripture in the presence of the Holy Spirit. All praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Will Heaven be Boring?

Some people believe Heaven will be dreadfully boring, just sitting around on a cloud playing a harp. Sounds OK for a little while, but eventually it would get pretty boring.

There’s one problem here. Boredom in Heaven is an impossibility! Boredom requires an element of time – doing the same thing over and over, or not having anything to do for a period of time. However, there will be no time in Heaven. Heaven, or Eternity, is not a long time but the absence of time.

In Eternity, we will be living in the moment without concern for past or future. Boredom will simply not be possible.
