JB, it seems like god-believers want to have their cake on earth and eat it and have pie in the afterlife and eat it and gain no weight from either.
1) If you are a good person and have had a lot of undeserved suffering, god will give you a wonderful afterlife to make up for the crap you went through here on earth. This is the situation of most of humanity, especially people in poor countries who get more famine, more natural disasters, more sickness, death, pain and suffering. But we have to conveniently ignore the fact that the supposedly loving god is the one giving the poor people all the extra crap...so he will have to give them the better afterlife.
2) If you are a good person and have had a really good, easy life, god is responsible for all the good things you have gotten even though you did not deserve them. This is the situation for a lot of people in wealthy countries. Nice earthly life, nice afterlife. Win, win. Thanks, god.
3) If you are a bastard and also have a terrible life, god is giving you what you deserve here on earth. The tormented alcoholic who abuses his family and then shoots himself, for example. Bad earthly life, bad afterlife. Lose, lose. But god made all that happen....
4) If you are a bastard and also have a very good life that you don't deserve (Donald Trump leaps to mind) god will give you a crappy afterlife. So there!
It seems that god gives out the crap and good things to people on earth in a rather scattershot fashion. For no reason we can fathom, god gives a lot more crap to poor people than to rich people.
Since god has his own rationale that makes no sense to us humans--mysterious ways and all-- why would the afterlife have any coherent logic either
? Given the way god runs things here on earth, the afterlife could be more of the same, with poor schmucks continuing to suffer more than the rich lucky bastards. Why would it be any different? Just because we wish it to be that way? I could wish to be Miss America, become a rock star, write a best-seller, be a superhero, win the lotto, live in outer space, star in a hit movie or be awarded a Nobel Prize, but so what? My wish has no relationship to reality.
Of course, there is no sign that any afterlife, good or bad, really exists. So you might as well imagine yourself getting your paradise JB. It won't affect your afterlife reality one way or another but if it makes you happy now, go for it...
