I was in church listening to my pastor talk about Heaven from the book of Revelation, chapters 21 and 22, and it got me to thinking… What will Heaven be like for geeks?
Being a “geek” is such a large part of my personality — who I am — that I believe God has planted the seeds of that in my life. I am not what I am ultimately intended to be, but I do believe I must be a shadow of that. If I am right, then Heaven is for geeks, too. We won’t have our “geekness” removed from our souls like a bad appendix. We will express ourselves perfectly through the reality of who we are in God.
But what will that look like?
Mind you, this is all totally supposition. Aside from any direct quotes from the Bible I might give here, I speak with no authority. This is just my geek imagination working.
The implications of “death shall be no more…”
“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.’ And he who was seated on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.'”
If you believe in the truth of that passage from the Bible, geeks in heaven will get at least one “super-power”: Eternal life. And it changes everything.
