What would you change if you knew you were NEVER going to die?

Could be anything I suppose. Nothing is written in stone.

  • Jan 17 2014: For myself, I know I'm never going to die. That is because I believe I am my spirit, not my body.

    This also means that what will not come with me, is not important. These couple of seconds, compared to eternity, don't make anything material as important.

      Jan 17 2014: ok so we only get two worlds: a life on earth here in our perceived physical form, and then its just eternity for ever and ever? That seems a bit like stone age talk....no offense.
      • Jan 18 2014: There may have been a better understanding, and acceptance, of a spiritual environment many ages ago.
        It may help if, when you read this, to not think it is based on a traditional Christian perspective. It is a new! Christian view with many details looked at differently.

        Humanity seems to have gone, and is going through developmental stages similar and parallel to the normal development individuals go through. A child does not realize and does not know all the details of who or what God is, but fully accept the idea that a God does exist.
        During the stage we are introduced to the world through science, we (mankind) may go through a stage of just accepting what our senses can 'tell' us. Anything beyond does not exist.
        At least I hope it is a stage.

        In the mean time, we believe, new Revelations have come about, and this book is one of the most popular. Heaven and Hell does not need to be read from page 1, but any chapter can be chosen. There are chapters on time and space in heaven.

        "just eternity for ever and ever" sounds boring :) but what if we do what we love to do? Would that change anything? Anyway have a look and see what you think.

        All the best, and any questions would be appreciated.
