Im asking. Has trek questioned your faith, your core?
In "The Emissary" the Wormhole aliens make Sisko relive various moments of his life.
He exists in the moment his wife died. It was the worst moment of his life.
That would be hell.
My view of actual hell is pretty close to that..... an amalgam of all your worst moments, sins in particular I would assume.
My view of actual heaven will be the flip, the amalgam of all the times we've honored God.
For the Christian, that amalgam is all that's left after all our sins have been purged.
The non-Christian has nothing from their life that honors God, [context:
(Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
so nothing of that person will exist in that heaven dimension. Thus an eternity reliving all those awful moments like Ben Sisko.
I am thankful my sins are forgiven. Because I am not worthy to stand in God's presence.
He loves us enough to send Jesus (yes John 3:16 for a reason).
We are V'Ger seeking the Creator. #STTMP
We want to merge with the creator. We cant do that with our sins in tow, He is perfect, we can not merge with anything that isn't perfect too. Only Jesus can forgive & perfect all of our sin data. He highlights the entire column of sin in the spreadsheet of our lives, and hits delete. Then clippy asks if you really want to do that. Fuck yes he does. He died on a cross for that very reason. That's not something he takes lightly I'm sure.
Kahless had to be cloned to come back.
But Jesus our ultimate data processor, all he had to do was go to the "Living" field on the spreadsheet of life, and change the "N" value to a "Y" value, and QAPLA! He lives again. 3 days later he strolls out of the tomb like a badass.
All he had to do was change the value of 1 field on the spreadsheet.
So those Bajoran Prophets tho. DS9's view of God where TNG clearly had Q.
In "Tapestry" Q has Picard relive a section of his life. Picard was able to make changes tho where I believe all actions are final but some are purged and some are saved.
By Jesus, our data processor.
The Holy Spirit is the Printer tech bringing all this to life.
God the Father is the programmer that wrote the code for #Earth(and all in this existence / dimension), and we all live happily ever after in the heaven dimension inside the Wormhole to the center of the galaxy.
And at the end of the day, aren't we all searching for God? #ShaKaRee When The Walls Fell.
Notice how God (all 3 in 1) is on the other side of the curtain? I'm lead operator. I don't cross that curtain. I have to have FAITH that the stack of invoices coming through the curtain is correct. I don't have to see behind the curtain to know that they are doing their job behind the scenes. Jesus is in his cube deleting our sins and making room for us in the cloud storage. #heavenisaharddrive
These are beliefs down to my core. And that is my answer when Trek has questioned my faith.
