There's one thing though. While you may think the idea of an eternal life is a horrible one when it is unchanging (I feel the same way). Who's to say you will feel that way when you actually are living that eternal life? God could make you feel all happy and fulfilled all the time if he wanted to, couldn't he?
Of course, but I'd shelve that under 'hollow and pointless gratification'. I'd have no choice but to be happy and fulfilled, but if God asked me, aged twenty eight about it I'd turn down the offer. It is certainly no life I'd choose to lead (yes, yes, I didn't have much choice in this one either). Aged sixteen I'd have accepted such an offer in a heartbeat (an eternity of Nirvana - bring it on!). Who knows what I'll think aged twenty-nine?
Ah, ok, I see. Then I kinda agree with you, I don't think such a life very meaningful at this age either (I'm 26 by the way). Curiously, when I was younger it seemed a very nice thing to have also, ah how experience and wisdom changes us. But the possibility I change my mind is a very real one, so for now, count me in with your position.I hunt for the truth
Let's assume there is a Heaven and you get there, but by some quirk of fate, your worst enemy also makes it. Great an eternity of being harassed by him. That's Heaven?¿ sure would seem more like Hell.
It would if mine and his feelings would still be the same, however it's entirely possible god changes them and makes us feel very happy and fuzzy to be together. With no way to tell how it's going to be though, for now, I'd hate to spend an eternity with my worst enemy.I hunt for the truth
