I will be writing about the concept of eternity and how not to be afraid with it. If I will be the one to be ask if I am afraid of eternity, my answer is yes. Even if I am a Christian, there is some anxiety I feel when talking about death and eternity. How can we be relaxed or feel sure of what will happen to us in eternity?

Dear friend, I could explain the meaning of eternity, as scientists call it. You imagine a cube of granite on each side measuring one kilometer. Imagine that every day a bird is going to rub them on his beak. When the entire block of granite will be completely consumed, it will only passed a instant of eternity. From the point of view of Religion, it speaks of eternity, or rather, Eternal Life, would be that we shall live to the end of our earthly existence.

I may not completely get your illustration and have never heard of that before. Eternity simply means our earthly existence comes to an end..but I guess there is really more to this life.

I think we are afraid because we are slaves of time in this universe but come on, i think you will get used to it...you`ll have enough time for that.

I like what you said we are afraid because we are slaves of time and this universe, as if we are trapped, we don't know what to do exactly. For the meantime let us relax we may have plenty of time left.
