Does the bible talk about eternity much?
« on: April 26, 2010, 10:27:47 PM »
According to some sources, there is an article all about Eternity and how time has to end, and we go into eternity.  Then it said that in Eternity, nothing ever changes, and the whole physical universe(earth) just dissolves.  One source said that at the end of time, Earth and Heaven become one.  Another source told me physical stuff all dissolves.  Many churches teach that in Eternity, we never can know everything.  I read that once the Restitution of all things occurs, there will be all sorts of new things to learn and all kinds of activities to do so we would never be bored.  But according to some sources, they state that Eternity is exactly the same.  Sounds a bit boring.  But I dont really recall the bible teaching much on the subject of Eternity, or anything about it.

 :cloud9: From my point of view, if you understand that the Spirit of God is outside the realm of time, then much of the book is about "eternity" via the workings and teachings about the Spirit. My  :2c: Blessings....

I'm pretty sure that ANY teaching on the eternal is going to all be based on presupposition and assumption because eternity is beyond the boundaries of temperal understanding.  My natural mind can not comprehend it regardless as to how many words are used to explain it.  It's not that we're not willing to learn, it's that there is nothing in this realm that can teach it.  It's an experience we'll all have, but trying to anticipate what's comming is nearly impossible.

I'm open though!!
