    Nope. Heaven is absolute and perfect happiness, peace, fulfillment, without our having to do anything.

    Scripture says precious little about life and duties in heaven.

    There is work in heaven but it's not the same thing as expending time and effort in exchange for something.  It not a matter of "doing and having", but a way of 'being and becoming'.  In nature, a river doesn't "do or have" anything, as a result of anything volitional, but is being 'what it is' as a result of the fulfilment of it's potential to become a 'river'.  When the water dries up, the river goes on to serve another purpose.

    In Heaven, we're positioned in our roles much in the same way, and serve all of existence as a consequence of what we 'are'.  The boundaries of a 'this-and-that', 'here-and-there', 'now-and-then', are irrelevant.

    What you wrote is more evidence for the idea that Christians like to make stuff up.

    It is the nature of God to work.  However, work in heaven is not tedious.  Instead, it is joyful and effort-free.

    No. It was a very long time by the automatic control of robots. People lived by the laws of the universe.

    A whole lot of ruling and reigning with Jesus, goes on in Heaven.

    I'm trying to imagine a child who worked in a tin mine in Cornwall going to church and praying that he be allowed to go to Heaven and work in a mine,  twelve hours a day, for ALL OF F[intercourse]ING ETERNITY!

    Are you SURE that would be HEAVEN???

    Are you implying that salvation needs an IT infrastructure and e-mail?
