Do you think the Christian bible says that we will have no physical bodies or sex up in heaven?
I think it sounds mean, because it's something that some young people and special needs never got because of bad social skills, including myself.

And revelations? Dooming our future? Why can't crap like this happen 100 years from now when were all dead?

But Heaven not need exist. I really want to leave my religion although I'm too lazy sometimes.

The Bible doesn't say that you get to heaven after you die, but that both the living and the dead will be judged during the second coming. Seriously, don't make getting laid into a bigger deal than it is; that's when you'll get laid. Women like sex as well, it's not something they view as a chore and reluctantly agree on to get men to marry them.

Lastly, even though sex feel great, there are a lot of things in life that are better. Playing the Fallout games is better than sex. Driving a sportscar/boulevard cruiser with the roof down in the summer sunset, with no other cars on the road, with nobody else in the car, and with heavy metal ballads on the stereo is better than sex. X-Files season 3, season 4, and season 5 is better than sex. Salmon with hollandaise sauce, potatoes, and broccoli is better than sex. Getting results from lifting weights is better than sex. While you should strive to get laid, people do not make a lot of fuss over the stuff that's better than sex--so why make so much fuss over sex itself?

Well...like the poster above said- the Bible doesnt say squat about "heaven" (as an abode in the afterlife sense of the word). That whole going to heaven as a reward thing aint in the Bible. So obviously "sex in heaven" isnt there either-one way nor the other. So youre on your own about it.

If you get to heaven, and THEN have sex-then you might get sent to the other place! So to be on the safe side dont go fraternizing with angels when and if you get there.

I don'think you really need to be worrying about this. Are you asking because you want to have sex or something?

Well?sex was created for a purpose, primarily procreation. It just happens to be pleasurable and maybe even addictive. The drive towards procreative acts has served us well in our survival as a species. I see birth control as counterproductive in more ways than one, but it is part of our existence along with a stigma in regards to actual reproduction, so I'm just going to go with it?

Anyway, the Bible doesn't say in strict terms that there's no sex in heaven. Some religious folks approached Jesus and posed a riddle to him about who a woman belongs to when she dies. Jesus says she belongs to no one because in heaven there is no marrying or giving in marriage and we are "like" the angels, whatever that means. While that doesn't expressly imply no sex in heaven, I think it's pretty safe to say there won't be.

The thing is, sex fulfills a physical need, bonding with someone of the opposite sex along with the aforementioned reproduction. In heaven, it is only God that matters. We aren't going to care about sex. And every believer who ever was or ever would be is in heaven already when the world ends, so there's no point to reproducing. I'll be honest, this isn't an idea I'm very crazy about. I like me some sex, or if I can't get that, at least a warm, naked or partially clothed female body to sleep next to every night. So if that's a part of this whole sinful human nature thing and that goes away when I get to heaven, I can be cool with that. I just can't pretend to understand it while I'm still alive.

I like the Koran better then. At least they can have thousands of virgins in heaven.

It usually says there's no sin in heaven, so I am guessing it means that there is no longer a punishment involved with doing those things in heaven, as there is on earth.

@Cash: 72 virgins is nice, but one must also consider the strict rules you have to adhere to on earth in order to attain said virgins. Remember, moral codes are stricter in Islam than in Christianity and Judaism (in some places, like Saudi Arabia, northern Nigeria, the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, etc., the moral codes are uber-rigid).

I don't believe heaven is about deprivation but the relief from all human vices that we are tempted to be slaves to here such as greed, envy, lust, etc....

Heaven wouldnt be heaven if desire were present. Desire is about fulfilling a need. Needs are about privation. Heaven as with all afterlives such as Nirvana would be about escaping this cycle.

Don't worry about me. I don't plan on being any type of theist. They all have their issues.

It is amusing to me seeing what kind of malarkey believers conjure up about your bible, interpretations and justifications. There should be a sitcom devoted to this stuff. This is one of the funniest posts and set of responses I have viewed so far in WP.

So desire is about fulfilling what isn?t already fulfilled. An afterlife where you have no desire for anything looks an awful lot like no afterlife at all to me; in other words, being just dead.

You're imposing the constraints of biology onto a totally different order of existence. The point of an afterlife is that one passes from life to death to the After Life. These three states are radically different. The afterlife is about being freed from the constraints of evolutionary biology and perhaps even the constraints of reality as we know it. Nirvana at least has a notion of timelessness in which desire has no place both as a product of suffering and the instigator of change. Heaven violates all human intuition. I mean the idea of eternity alone violates human intuition

So what?s the difference between that and just plain staying dead? The only thing I understand is that you insist on labelling the lack of desire as ?freedom?, even specifying there?s no motivation for change. This is basically the definition of death to me: you feel nothing, you need nothing, you want nothing, you do nothing, because you no longer exist. If Heaven is meant to be a reward, I can think of much better alternatives, but they are based on what you call ?constraints?. I don?t believe in the concept of being a slave to oneself?to me, that is the very definition of freedom, and I have no use for a ?freedom? which excludes doing anything with it. If that?s the point, you might as well be bound, or, you know, dead.
