Catholic Definition – Heaven cannot be boring



Heaven can’t be a boring place. A Catholic magazine educates believers about how the Church of Rome defines heaven. An imaginative journey that goes far past the gospel.

Heaven couldn’t be boring

Is the sky really as boring as some pictures make it out to be? The Catholic “enlightenment magazine Catholic.com” takes up this topic and cites the widespread scene of little angels sitting on clouds and playing the harp all day long. Of course, these ideas were clichés. Nevertheless, the author speculates that the greatest longing for every believer is to go to heaven. Here, for those who believe in life after death, there are usually only two possibilities. Either you go to heaven or you end up in hell. With this choice, the question arose as to whether heaven was only chosen as the preferred location because it was the better alternative (Source). What’s so great about the sky?

The catechism provides information

Church of Rome determines the appearance of heaven

Sometimes the heaven is depicted as a picture of clouds and harps. A representation that does not have to be taken literally, according to the author. In this context, the believer must rather get out of the “standard mentality” for the terms “life” and “in”.

In principle, one cannot expect that life after death will be the same as life before death. Therefore, one should not attempt to imagine a time in a specific place. Basically, heaven is something completely different. Something for which there is no comparison, according to the author.

For the more detailed descriptions of heaven, let alone the condition of the dead, the author of the Catholic magazine does not rely on the Bible, but rather on the Catholic catechism. Heaven is defined there as follows: “Heaven is the ultimate goal and the fulfillment of the deepest human longings, the state of highest, final happiness.” So there will be no boredom. “Saint” Augustine already described this: “Our hearts were created for you, and they are restless until they find rest in you.” It follows that in heaven there will be no distraction from earthly worries, and that includes boredom.

The emphasis here is on “definition”. Accordingly, the church does not describe the properties of heaven, but simply determines what it should look like.

Furthermore, the Roman Catholic Church teaches about heaven: “This perfect life with the Most Holy Trinity—this communion of life and love with the Trinity, with the Virgin Mary, the angels and all the blessed—is called ‘heaven.’”

Excerpt from a biblical statement

The author ventures into the gospel and quotes John 14:2-3:
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
Proof that the rooms in the father’s house were already prepared. However, this verse gives no information as to when this will be relevant for a deceased person.

Collapse like a house of cards

House of cards
Very unstable theses

However, the visions of the author of the Catholic Enlightenment Magazine fail due to two circumstances. Firstly, there is no immediate travel anywhere for people after their death and secondly, the “hell option” is generally not possible. All you need to do is turn your gaze away from the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and turn to the statements of the Gospel.

The Bible describes, and the Church of Rome knows this only too well, that man has no(!) immortal soul. This means that “wandering” of the soul is completely impossible, no matter which direction. The church knows the statements of the Bible, as it proves in the “New Catholic Encyclopedia”, Vol. 13, starting on page 335. Nevertheless, she creates her own fantasy world and spreads it using her catechism, which is binding for all believers. Attitudes that deviate from this are condemned by the church as heresy. The Bible is clear on the subject of the soul (Info).

Even hell, as planted in people’s minds, is merely a product of the confused minds of the Church of Rome. Simply an effective means of exerting pressure and spreading fear, in order to suggest to people that there is no alternative to their dependence on the only church that brings salvation. The Bible is clear on this point too (Info).

Personal responsibility is required

The Bible – It’s in there, the truth

This article from the Catholic “Enlightenment Magazine” is once again clear evidence of how untruths are intended to be cemented in the minds of misled believers using imaginative representations, alternatives and options. A working recipe that is used again and again in completely different areas of society. In order to find the truth, the only thing that remains is the self-responsible initiative of looking after the sources yourself, finding out the origin of theses put into the world and, above all, the motives of these apologists.

Every person is and remains an individual and will one day have to answer individually for all of their own actions and omissions. It is no coincidence that individualism is one of the biggest enemies of the Roman Catholic Church (Info). Everyone is free to believe the stories of a self-proclaimed “Holy Bombam” more than the Word of God. But the resulting actions all come into play and woe betide you if you are found “too light”.

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2 Corinthians 6:16-17
