I grew up going to churches and sunday school etc.
I was given many versions of heaven, many of which after i was diagnosed with bi-polar at age 10
centered on heaven being a place where this wouldnt exist.
i would never be depressed sad angry etc in heaven, every emotion we classify as negative gone.
on top of this many included spending eternity praising/worshiping this god.
to me this says everything that has made me who i am is gone and im now forced
to spend eternity worshiping this god. why the hell would i want that?
i really dont get it.
yet my dad has made it clear that for him the idea of this life being all there is makes him feel life is pointless.
for me it means lie for today, not for death.
