Dear brother,Well, you're the one asking what Heaven will be like. All any can do is take what little we have concerning Heaven in the Scripture and try and develop some ideas.
Scripture is clear that sex is not just about pro-creation. See again (Gen. 18:12) Plus, why would we not have a sexual appetite when we will have a food appetite? Didn't the resurrected Christ eat fish with the disciples? (Luke 24:40-43)
Do you think men and women having sex is wrong? Was it, and is it not a spiritual thing? Why do you say, we are not looking for things we may like to see?
I don't believe you. We are men and women because that is what God made us to be. We are not some sort of neutered creatures. Thus there will be relationships, I believe, in Heaven. Don't ask me how it will be, as I said, I don't know. But that it will be, I do believe.
Well, you say we will not have genitals in Heaven. Because as you say, they are for procreation only. That is strange since I showed you they are for pleasure also. What is wrong with that when in accordance with God? And, if Jesus Christ ate fish and honey, will He be required to go to the bathroom? Will we? How...if we don't have genitals?
Yes, I believe Mary will be there. And, she will be a woman. Is that a surprise? Abraham will be a man. What a bulliten. Your description of us in heaven is not of resurrected humans. It is of some other order of beings.
From your Paragraph-1 When I say what will Heaven be like, I am not asking a question for an answer but adding a question for readers to think what heaven is like, and most importantly what the New Heaven/New Earth will be like. All who are saved will be there a very long time brother, you wouldn't go on holiday to another country without first seeking some information about the place, why then do people have all sorts of ideas about heaven yet don't search the scripture for what God tells us, so we can be prepared for what we are to enjoy. That certainly gives me a thirst does it not give you one?
P2 - Sex is not just about pro-creation, agreed. God designed it for man and woman's enjoyment in this life, providing they are man and wife and married according to God's Word. I am not sure what Jesus eating fish with His disciples has to do with sex on earth in this life.
P3 - Do I think men and women having sex is wrong, it is not for me to say brother, except to go by God's Word. Of course it is not wrong in this life, providing they are man and wife in marriage as said, it is for multiplying in this life and for their enjoyment. We must take God's Word, all of it, even though some statements may not make sense at the time, we are not to look at things how we see things in this world and try fit scripture round them.
P4 - There will be loving relationships in heaven, God is love, we will be in His love, but as B-A-C confirmed with scripture there will not be male and female in the New Heaven/New Earth, so there will not be sex.
P5 - We do not know whether we will have to go to the bathroom, scripture doesn't tell us everything, yes Christ ate fish, and we are invited to the Banquet, we will eat and drink also in the New Heaven/New Earth. You may have lots of questions brother, we all do, but if God does not say we do not have the answer for that question, we move on to what He does say, He has given us enough to wet our appetite, to encourage us, to make us want to be there, for me that is enough, except I want to know everything He has to tells us, it will be such a wonderful place, and for all eternity. Wow brother.
P6 - Yes Mary will be there, as will all the others we have mentioned and more, but they will be neither male nor female in the New Heaven/New Earth, why? Because God has told us clearly in His Word.
I am sorry you felt I had not answered your question brother, the answers I give here are from scripture, they are available for us all.
Thanks be to God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
Bless you \o/
