I wish i could live forever especially now that i have kids of my own. The idea of not being there for them in the future saddens me sometimes. I would love to grow old with my babies but sadly we can't live forever. My hubby says having an eternal life will make one very miserable for there's no end to it. What do you think ?

If one loves life than it would be good but if one hates life than it would be bad. We are individuals. However, there would have to be no pain, suffering, old age or evil of any kind. I for one am looking forward to living forever.

True . I wouldnt want an eternal live full of sadness and suffering. I wonder why God gave us 1 life and a cat 9 ? Though i know its to appreciate the value of life more but still....

if we had immortality and could still have children we would become an over-populating plague

A disturbing thought yet there is a possibility of it turning into a plague. This has got me thinking of zombies ...

I think your hubby has a point. Because what if you have eternal (flesh) life but your loved ones don't have it. Having an eternal life would be a gift but also a curse at the same time.

Yes ur right. I think it works better if everyone has it...other wise is indeed a curse.

There are so many things to learn on the surrounding, nature, universe and how is it related to us.

@id_peace ok i get you . Very true...

That would be miserable as we tend to grow in age and we are going to have age related problems and we need to face them that would be unending in nature.

It would be great. All the things that I could learn. The places I could go. The things that I could see and do.

God has promised to give eternal life to those who obey him, which means they love him and other humans - Psalm 37:29 Revelation 21:3 - 5 , There will be no suffering or sickness, and the earth will be peaceful.. You can find an online Bible in jw.org

It would be nice if we can live as long as we want and then when we are ready to go we just request permission to leave...i think that is better ...dont u ?

If our faces and bodies wouldn't age, then I would love to live forever. But I think God does that on purpose, so we'll wanna die.
