Questions about Heaven asked by Students from VERB!!

1st Question - Is there Sex in Heaven?

- The Bible does not give a direct answer such as "No Sex in Heaven or Yes there will be Sex in Heaven". But Jesus kind of answers this question in Matthew 22 when the Sadducee's (religious leaders) asked him about marriage and resurrection "At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven” Jesus teaches here that marriage is a relationship to be enjoyed in this life, but it will not carry forward into the next life. While we do not lose our identity in heaven (Luke 16:23), we will not hold the same relationships that we do on earth. Our existence will be quite different from what we are used to here. The fact that there is no marriage in heaven implies at least two other things: 1) There will be no procreation in heaven; the number of the redeemed is set, and, with no death, there will be no need to propagate the race. 2) There will be no sexual intercourse in heaven, becuase there will be no marriage. The appetites and desires of this world will give way to higher and infinitely more gratifying delights in the world to come.

It may not be the answer some of you were hoping for, but hopefully it answers your question. Stay tuned for more questions to be answered.
