Monday Morning Musings #3

Welcome to week 3 of my asinine questions.

I brought the following question up during a Wednesday night men’s bible study that I have belonged to for about 3 years now.  The question:

When we reach heaven, will we still have freewill to choose?

That question needs a little fleshing out to make more sense, so consider these points:

  • This question is about the ability to choose to obey or not
  • Heaven in our minds is purportedly perfect and free from sin
  • Angels appear to have freewill as Lucifer and the third of the heavens that were cast out should attest
  • What do our thoughts on this question say about our beliefs on the character of God?

So, do we lose freewill? Or is it more of the fact of having lived a life here on the fallen earth that by comparison there really is no choice as it would be like choosing between a plate of dog feces or brownies for dessert?

Feel free to weigh in on your thoughts.  Don’t be afraid to tell me if you feel this is a silly question that needs no answer.
