I've been meaning to write for awhile, ever since I took a trip
around the world when I was ten:
What language is spoken in Heaven?
Being an American, I assumed English was the official language
of Everlasting Paradise until I learned that there are about 7000
languages spoken on Earth.
When we get to Heaven, do we automatically know all of the languages,
or do we have to learn them? Or is there another universal Heaven
What about slang? You know, will a Gaul who lived centuries before
I was born understand me when I approach him and ask, "How's it
hangin'?" (Oh, wait... the Gauls were polytheistic, so they won't
be going to Heaven, will they? Okay, okay. Let's just assume the
heavenly stranger was of a different time and place but was also
actually worthy of being in Heaven in the first place...)
Boy, there are so many technical difficulties with getting of Heaven,
which reminds me of another part of my question: what about technical
jargon? Will I be able to converse freely and knowledgeably about
surgery with a doctor? Or the structure of molecules with a chemist?
Or the construction of a ballcock with a plumber?
