And stay forever as they are
Without the slightest change to leaven
Their mortal clay is just bizarre.
Don’t think that Heaven’s immortality
Would satisfy our rationality;
How much can any person take
When there is nothing we can’t slake.
To last forever means infinity;
And if you wish to stay the same
Then only you will bear the blame
For being bored. It’s asininity
To not know that each human breath
Is made the sweeter by our death.
BASKING IN GOD’S GLORY: ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN? (2)
And as for basking in God’s glory
So that you lose yourself in Him,
You’ll find that it’s the same old story,
If reasoning is not a whim.
If you’re absorbed in God’s reality,
You’ll have to lose your personality:
For totally absorbed in God,
Means that you lose your mind and bod.
For anything that’s all consuming
Would leave no room for what you are.
So, not yourself, you’d bid bonsoir
To you and then whoever’s rooming
Inside your mind gets room and board.
If not, then you’d go off your gourd.
