So my question is will there be human birth on the new earth?
The real questions for me come up after the answer to that though.
How will there ever be enough space for infinite immortal people? Not on this world for sure, but God claims to renew this very world. So how would that work?
Besides that the children being raised in the perfect world won’t have sin so no salvation needed. Won’t that get weird as well with them not really needing Jesus?
If infinite people can be born on the new earth wouldn’t that make the percentage of people that were saved here infinity small and the sacrifice of the cross irrelevant?
This is probably the right answer in the first place based of Matthew 22 - 30 and Luke 20 - 34-36
There won’t be marriage and probably not even genders since we will all be angels. I don’t recall there being any female angels in the bible.
Besides that gender doesn’t make any sense to me when there is no marriage.
God clearly has an opinion on how to do marriage and raising children right. So I would assume he thinks those are in it’s essence good things.
Genesis 2 - 18 God said that it’s not right for the human to be alone.
The rest of the chapter makes it clear that the human companion ideally an equal being is to become one flesh with.
This again makes me think God finds gender and marriage a good thing.
Most people would say that their wedding and the birth of their children are the best things that ever happened to them.
So finally the real question is…
If marriage and having children seems to be a good thing from ours and God’s perspective.
Why will God ban it for all of eternity on the new earth?
I know the common answer is that we will be happy just to praise God and we shouldn’t worry about it.
But Adam didn’t seem very happy without his partner dispite he was in paradise with God. So why would we be?
