If God is false, we are simply enjoying ourselves without any heavenly objective at all.
Or perhaps, the universe does not exist or we wouldn't be around today huh!

Huh?

There is a lot to accomplish in this life. You don't need to worry about the end everyday. Stop and smell the roses. Do you only going to work and worry about payday? Can you help your neighbor without thinking of brownie points from above? Sometime it's nice to be a good person just because it make YOU feel good.

If God is true then:
What's the point of heaven?

and what's the point of God?

If God is true, heaven is where we will all heading for, living together with God Himself. God is just like our King/Emperor such Julius Ceasar, King Bumiphol, King Tut etc. God is not the figurehead; He control all movements/activities in heaven and earth huh!

If he is so great why doesn't he just tell us what he wants? Is he just playing games with us? Are we like lab rats trying find to the right path, never knowing till we get to the end if we get cheese or not?

You haven't explained what the point of God is only what you think it does.

What is the point of God? What's its purpose?

You haven't explained the point of going to heaven either? So we go there to be with God and do what?

There's not much point in learning anything since God already knows everything. There's not much point in working or building anything since God can presumably do everything itself.

What exactly is the point of being there? Sounds like a meaningless existence to me.

God is just like your parents. Your parents created and feed you to grow to make this world a lively place to live in. If you think that it is pointless to have parents, you won't be here. God gives life to a soul in a created/growing/evolving flesh. The Heaven is for the Spirit that leaves the flesh after it dies of old age; it is the ultimate place where we will spend the rest of our life singing hymns praising God the King. In Heaven, we will help God to take care of every human in this world and try to bring all of them together in the spirit of God.

In fact we already had all the essential things here that God had provided us. Mankind had survived in many corners of the earth, no matter how hostile the environment be coz they know how to make use of the things that God had created. All we have to do is to worship God only and He is happy with our little effort to love Him coz He had loved us so much.

The jews who worship many different gods are silly jews. Those jews who were obedient to Moses worship God. This God had come in flesh and He is the real and true God.

As long as their gods are coming from Heaven, they are worshipping the same God of the Jews.

But they're screwed if they don't accept Jesus, right?

Why can't they believe that Jesus is God? That means they have different gods.

O.K. Now let me straight, he only wants us to worship him. Unless it's Jesus, then it's O.K. Or it doesn't matter how many gods we worship. Please let me know how this works.

and this trinity thing

I guess god has a split personality

I always thought Jesus was the son of god

and the holy ghost is pretty much a catholic thing, not other xtian flavours
