"If there are restrooms in heaven, then I think the more important question is: Do they adhere to the "if it's brown flush it down, if it's yellow let it mellow" policy?"
---Jed on 7/16/12


You're one carnal minded sick hound Jed! :D
---Leon on 7/19/12


"There will be no such thing as "the draught passing through"...those in Heaven will eat, but the food will become a part of their spiritual bodies. The 'atoms' of the food will merge with the spiritual 'atoms' of the bodies of the Saints in Heaven...I believe [that's] the only thing that makes sense...There will be no 'going to the bathroom' in Heaven. No 'repulsive' bodily functions will be done in Heaven..."
---Gordon on 7/16/12


Ditto Gord!!! Reference my response to Francis 6/30. As it originally was with Adam in the garden, I believe it will be with believers in Heaven. Now, that's heavenly! :)

---Jed on 7/16/12


There will be no such thing as "the draught passing through". I believe that, in Heaven, it will be as Kat Kerr has explained, as she was shown Visions of Heaven. That those in Heaven will eat, but, the food will become a part of their spiritual bodies. The "atoms" of the food will merge with the spiritual "atoms" of the bodies of the Saints in Heaven. Sort of like taking vitamins that nourish the body. I believe that it's the only thing that makes sense. Sense, that is, when you learn more about the spiritual bodies of those in Heaven and in Hell. There will be no "going to the bathroom" in Heaven. No "repulsive" bodily functions will be done in Heaven, as hard as that is to imagine.
---Gordon on 7/16/12


aka thank you for the answer to idol,to me anything is an idol if it is more important to a person than serving God,not just a figure made of stone. I would never put myself above any other person. I knew a woman who always told me one day she is going to heaven,but she was still married to the wife abuser she left and sleeping with another man,I told her "you have to make your life line up with the Bible to go to heaven". Praise the Lord she did,she married a minister and has served the Lord for the last twenty years. God's truth may not line up with what a person believes but we have to tell them anyway.

"I'm unaware of such a thing. I know that on earth, during the Lord's Day, men will be eating...Scriptures make no such reference of [restrooms] in heaven."
---Phil on 7/7/12


Phil: Let's zoom out & take a look. Earth hangs in space aka heaven (Job 26:7). Wherever the Lord is, varying degrees of heaven exist. That being said, the Lord is Omnipresent (everywhere).

My question has to do more with a time when believers will be eating with the Lord in heavenly places. As such, we won't be in our current flesh bodies because they will have been radically changed. The Bible says they'll be incorruptable (non-perishing). This is the point of my blog question. Thx for your interest & expressed concern. :)
---Leon on 7/7/12


I am unaware of such a thing. I know that on earth, during the Lord's Day, men will be eating there. But the Scriptures make no such reference of that taking place in heaven.
---Phil on 7/7/12


leon, refreshed with what? like normal, you are evading a reasonable question and in the meantime you put down somebody you claim to edify. so, again, please explain how this answer edifies or builds up the body of christ?

(now, you respond with some quip intending to demean me and puff yourself up and put a smiley face on it. we know how it goes.)

darlene, idol worship is in the scripture that you quote. i have a heart for my sister in christ, that is why i spoke for the man with no voice. jesus did it for me. atheist is God's creation also, and nobody should put themselves above him especially christians.
---aka on 7/6/12


aka I'm sorry I don't know what you mean "in action is a must" and "idol worship". Blogging on here hardly makes us being best buddies with unbelievers. We come to a Christian site,expecting other Christians to be here and they are and if unbelievers come here Glory to God because giving the Word of God to a lost world is what we are supposed to do. Being bosom buddies is nothing like Christ eating with sinners. Christs is a passing relationship the other one is an ongoing relationship.
---Darlene_1 on 7/6/12


"Leon, now that we have your answer to your own question, please explain how this answer edifies or builds up the body of christ?"
---aka on 7/5/12


If you don't find Bible insights to be refreshing, you should examine & rid yourself of the old baggage you're holding on to. Let that mess go along with your stinkin' thinkin' (stuck up attitude)! Afterwards, you'll feel so much better, i.e., be strengthened. :)
---Leon on 7/6/12




darlene, jesus shared meals with sinners.

you and shira constantly blog on a site where we are not separated.

we separate in physicality if we need but in action is a must.

idol worship.
---aka on 7/5/12


aka 2 Corinthians 6:16,17,17 therefore come out from among them and be separate. Whether Shira's message was the Good News Jesus saves,it is the other side of it,they are part and parcel of the same message,accept Jesus or die in your sin and be punished. We humans are good at finding a reason or a way to do our own will instead of God's,His Word says be separate,and that's what it means. Most creatures in this world know where they belong and herd,flock,school,etc with their own kind. Christians need to minister outside their zone to take the Gospel message to the lost,but when it comes time to go to roost they should be with others of like fellowship.
---Darlene_1 on 7/5/12


darlene, bible verses...where?

Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

if, by your use of separation was correct, Jesus would have not given this command. again, separation means to not participate in what they do. it does not mean absolute physical separation. not counting the apostles and his father in prayer, who did jesus spend most of his time with?

btw, is blogging with unbelievers and heretics separating oneself or is it in a way gathering with them?
---aka on 7/5/12


aka Sorry I'm not sure what you mean if my interpretation of "separate yourself" is correct etc,Jesus is incorrect. I didn't interpret anything,I just gave the Bible verses. I think the key there is not to fellowship,of company with a lot,since the ones we are close to need to be Christians,that's friends of course,since we don't pick our family. Shira told the truth no matter what anyone thinks about it.
---Darlene_1 on 7/5/12


warwick, it's not my way, it is the way it is.

you are just to proud to admit it.

let's review. toilette - the process of washing oneself, dressing, and attending to one's appearance: "Emily got up to begin her morning toilette".

restroom - a place to rest the bowels.

bathroom - see toilette.

toilet, bathroom, restroom are usually interchangeable.

leon, now that we have your answer to your own question, please explain how this answer edifies or builds up the body of christ?
---aka on 7/5/12


Aka: Spurious?! :) It contentious (rude) people, like you, who are always crying foul the loudest. No one made you participate in this blog. It's probably best (for you...) to butt out if that's the way you feel. This blog, like many others I've posted, seeks to find a deeper scriptural level of understanding that'll build up & edify believers. It's not for people who choose not to rise above their carnally based & natural way of thinking.

By the way, I agree with you regarding "restroom" versus "toilet". But, neither will be found in God's pristine pure Heaven since it's a place devoid of corruption of any kind & "believers" will all have put on "incorruption".

Aka, have it your way. I, and the rest of the world will call them toilets as we do not go there to rest or to have a bath.
---Warwick on 7/5/12


Actually, toilet and restroom are both euphemisms for privy.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/5/12


warwick, your initial argument is all backwards. restroom is a more accurate word than toilette is as you initially argued.

your pride keeps you from the truth.
---aka on 7/5/12


leon, you always ask questions that are spurious at best and put down people as the blog unfolds no matter what direction it takes. big surprise.

do you really think that this is a blog that we take seriously?

Aka, I have made my point. I don't like unnecessary euphemisims. Just call things what they are. If you are happy with them please continue to use them.

Let us, as Leon asks, just drop it. It is part of this topic but not really important.
---Warwick on 7/4/12


darlene, what shira said was presented as Good News? And, if your interpretation of separate yourselves from them is correct, than Jesus' instruction to go and spread the Gospel is incorrect?

to spread the Gospel, we have to go among them, but we are not to be like them. Jesus spent his time among the sinners which included unbelievers.

talking and spending time with an unbeliever is not having fellowship with darkness. it is called evangelism. talking about somebody who does not understand to somebody else while that person can hear is having fellowship in and with darkness.
---aka on 7/4/12


Don't y'all think this whole discussion about heavenly toilets is absurd?

yes, i am touchy. is there something wrong with standing for the truth.

can you see you are being high-minded and crotchety and incorrect?

i know toilet and toil are not related. i am trying to make a point. your point is that rest and restroom are related because of shame, and I say restroom IS named for our bodily functions.

now let's look at toilette or the process of washing oneself, dressing, and attending to one's appearance: "Emily got up to begin her morning toilette".

Honestly, doesn't that sound like bathing in a bathroom and not resting in a restroom?

touchy or touche?
---aka on 7/4/12


Do you guys suppose you can give it a rest & not continue to waste this blog with your strife contests? Can you bring yourselves to let your verbal refuse go? I sincerely hope so! Thx. :)
---Leon on 7/4/12


Aka, a little touchy aren't you?

I have been to the US quite a few times, and travelled all over. There is a lot to like there. I look forward to going again. However the US, like any country has things which are strange, and as I see it the 'restroom' 'bathroom' euphemisms are one example.

BTW the toil in toilet has no connection to the English to 'toil' but is from a French word.

I wonder if there is a euphemism for 'euphamism?'
---Warwick on 7/3/12


aka Shira didn't say anything wrong to atheist,what she said is what we all are suppose to tell a person who doesn't believe in God. That is our primary purpose to bring the Good News Of Christ to unbelievers. Frankly what you said to her was far more wrong. You insulted her and judged her wrong and bad when you insinuated to her the company of a nonbeliever was better than hers to be around. You also judged her salvation with the "eye of a needle" comment. Where is your heart for a Sister-in-Christ ? The Bible says what fellowship does light have with darkness,2 Corinthians 6:16,17 What agreement is there between the Temple of God and idols? Therefore come out from among them and be separate. atheist I mean no disrespect to you.

shira, think about it. if you do not understand what someone is talking about yet knows your language, and that person turns to another in ear shot, and then seemingly speaks down to you, what would you do?

if someone tries to pop your moving bubble plastic yet you have an endless supply, does it really matter?

atheist is also a creation of the Lord. hear with your heart.
---aka on 7/3/12


well aka, I didn't know I had said anything wrong. I was really trying to get him to understand the conscequences of living with unsaved people is really taking a chance. I would be afraid to make that change. I made my choice because I wanted a better life and I want to serve God.
---shira4368 on 7/3/12


---shira4368 on 7/3/12

shira, you just made atheist's chance to fit through the eye of a needle than yours. despite my differences with atheist and reading the posts of many of you, i'd rather eat at atheist's house. the demeanor is probably more tender there.


Warwick, another chance to bash the US. again, the word restroom comes from to rest ones bowels. like micha said, we prefer to rest our bowels and not toil when we use the toilet in the restroom.

secondly, the words bathroom and restroom are misused. over time, it has become a function of colloquialism not embarrassment.

yes, about the US, One country says "too crass"...the other says "too embarrassed".
---aka on 7/3/12


Shira,


Well, if I chose the wrong "god" I will still end up in that everlasting fire. And why would I chose your "god" who won't even give out reprieves for a day to clean toilets. At least Warwick's "god" does that.

But neither of your "gods" seem to be very loving if they are going to torture me forever for not believing in them.

Too many god to chose from.... and they will all torture me for disbelief. Aren't you never afraid you've got the wrong one?
---atheist on 7/3/12

Shira, I was only joking but it was also a dark joke as any atheist given a day pass to heaven to clean the toilets would see what they have missed out on. As you rightly say everyone should seriously endeavour to find out if the God of the Bible exists. Long ago, when it occurred to me that He did I wasted no time in asking for forgiveness. And praise God for that.
---Warwick on 7/3/12


warwick, atheist won't get close to heaven unless he gets saved. I sure would be afraid if I wasn't saved. atheist why would you even take a chance...just what if you knew there was a God (and there is) and you did nothing about it. you won't die in hell but will burn in an everlasting fire. why do you even take that chance?
---shira4368 on 7/3/12

Leon you are correct in writing "EUPHEMISM: A pleasant way of saying something otherwise unpleasant." But that assumes that 'toilet' is a "crass" word. It isn't as it is but a word which correctly describes a place. That it is considered unpleasant says much about those who consider it so.

If you travel the world you will see in most countries toilet or varieties thereof e.g. 'toilette' is the common term, not a crude term, and no one faints from embarassment.

It appears to me that 'bathroom' and 'restroom' are terms coined by those embarassed about their God-given bodily functions. Very much an American thing.
---Warwick on 7/2/12


Good question NR! I thought someone might ask that. If you don't mind, I'd rather not go there today & keep this blog focused solely on us, the human specie of whom God made specifically in His image for His divine purpose & pleasure. Thx. :)
---Leon on 7/2/12


Warwick, when we use the restroom, we are resting our bowels. thus, the name . Bathrooms havetoilets as well as bath and/or showers. i suppose that it might make a few ill mannered happy to use a crass name. or should i have said 'crotchety ' to be more crass?
---aka on 7/2/12


I must agree with Leon...only for a different reason.

My Orthodox Jewish friends inform me that when the Israelites were in the wilderness and ate the heavenly mana, it was a perfect food and there was no waste from it. Meaning, no defecation from the mana.

Therefore, since we already have an example to work from, I am convinced that we will not need restrooms in heaven.

Why is going to the bathroom a sin or bad?
Maybe it's just because some of you think it's dirty.

Reminds me of Adam
Gen_2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

This is Amazing!
Gen_3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked,

This I don't find so amazing, expected.
Gen_3:12 The woman whom thou gavest to be with me,
Gen_3:13 The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.

The tree of the knowledge
Anyone see any good in it?
All I hear about it is evil!
Where the good?
Or was it just a prop that set the stage for our human growth/development.

1. I agree w/Willie_c, 7/1, i.e., no decay, no corruption/putrefaction, no "waste".

2. G1 & 2 says everything God made was "good": It was sweet (incorrupt), prosperous (a successful accomplishment) & well-pleasing to God.

After A'sinned: the ground was cursed (G3:17) ~ A' was demoted from gardner to lowly dirt farmer ~ A & E's loss of innocence was unpleasing corruption (waste) before God & needed to be covered up.

They are toilets so let us call them that."

EUPHEMISM: A pleasant way of saying something otherwise unpleasant.

REST: To cease work or "movement" in order to relax, refresh oneself, or recover strength.

"this corruptible must put on incorruption," we have in 1 Corinthians 15:53. So, if there is no corruption possible with our bodies, I can see there won't be corruption of food we eat. And so, there won't be decay of food that goes into our intestines, therefore no need for restrooms.

All will be resurrection quality > we have how "the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God." (in Romans 8:21) So, food etc. is included in "the creation" which will not be corruptible, I consider.
