    Though looking forward to living in the Kingdom of Christ, I hope that technology will exist there, as I would not like to cease computer programming upon entering eternity. Also, I've found it difficult to maintain interest in programming stuff over the past several years, and hope that in God's kingdom, I will be able to do programming without those problems.

    Do you think there will be technology in God's kingdom?
    Will we have computers?
    Will we create software?

    Or will God just destroy all of mankind's inventions and assign us to cultivate plants?

    An observation from another programmer - I'm of the opinion that DNA is God's version of "computer programming". Animal instinct like birds migrating each year and finding their way to the exact same spot is baffling. Not only that, but God's programming has 0 bugs. You or I code something and there's always going to be bugs in it. God programs some DNA and there are no bugs. I.E a fish doesn't spontaneous combust, there are defined physical limits God places on the world that cannot be breached.

    I don't know if we'll have computers or software, and as a farmer I'm also good cultivating plants, but I'd like to see how God coded the DNA for all these different species. He even has multi-use "packages" if you think about how many different species share certain amounts of DNA.

    I suspect it would be so much better than that. What we think of as technology now, would be in the New Heaven and New Earth as if having no technology now.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the Lord my Righteousness and spending eternity with Him. I don't know what else will be involved in the new heavens and new earth other than it will be where righteousness dwells. Even if there is nothing of what I am familiar with on this earth, I am quite certain that God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit will be more than enough.

    ??? Looking forward? The kingdom of Christ is NOW. While you're living, breathing, thinking, eating, sleeping, whether you're programming or not programming. Go there: 2 Peter 1:2-11,

    Yes, NOW! God's elect, when He regenerates them, are immediately in Christ's kingdom.

    Colossians 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.
