If I Became a JW, Could I Have My Cat on Paradise Earth?

    I wouldn't want any part of an afterlife/Paradise without my fur babies.

    Well, how about the animals that are living on Paradise Earth? Do THEY die or do they live forever?

    Now the GB had never revealed what our relationship with God and the anointed class is going to be on Paradise Earth after the Millennium. Will the great crowd be able to see Jehovah God? Will they be able to converse with the Heavenly Class? If the Heavenly Class are "like God" (1 John 3:2), how hard would it be to recreate a cat with the same memories, the same looks and a better attitude? (After all, everyone who is resurrected will be recreations of what they were. You won't be the same person you are now; you'll be an exact copy. The resurrected you will have the same memories, same thoughts, will look and sound the same. But in the end you'll only be a carbon copy. So just recompose my cat! 🐱)

    Oh, and while you're at it, can you also put Meg Ryan back the way she was?

    cold steel:"resurrected the same"... I hope not, I would hate to come back as a 70 year old and it would be weird to come back younger than my grandkids.

    In the resurrection, I believe you'll come back as you were in your prime. But you'll most likely be able to appear as any age you wish or even change your appearance. But I'd sure hate to be trapped in a crummy garden for eternity. I'd definitely want to be one of the anointed and to streak around the Universe at will and watch solar systems being created and others dying out. See black holes destroying massive stars. That would be better than going to a family reunion at the water fall for the 8,000th time!

    So don't worry. You'll be a young 70! And it won't hurt when you pee.

    Depends on if he "qualifies" for paradise.

    What are his field service hours?

    Cats don't need field service. They're doing YOU the favor by being resurrected and letting YOU feed them. They let YOU bask in their presence. Can't you tell that from the above photo? And am I going to be the only one posting photos of my cat?

    What if one named their cat Jehovah? Would the elders appreciate the humor?

    (You DO know God's real name was Yahweh?)

    My Siamese cross who lived to almost 19 years came back as a great horned owl. She perches majestically in the old lightning struck pine out back.

    They pass over the rainbow bridge into the elysian fields where they romp....barbaro the beautiful would have been triple crown winner is there as well.....

    Their spirits live on.....

    I strongly believe cats (and even dogs as much as I'm loathe to admit it) have immortal spirits and are covered under Christ's atonement. When I look into their eyes I see an intelligence that can't be just snuffed out. Each had a personality and when they die their bodies look every bit as empty as a human shell.

    Oh dear!. Here we go..

    Well, the Rainbow Bridge leads to Valhalla, where the warriors await the great day of Ragnarök (Armageddon), whereas the Elysian Fields were in the Underworld and required the crossing of the River Styx, the black river, by ferry. Cats don't require the requisite coin under the tongue. They go free of charge!

    Now about those photos....
