Indeed, but you could still believe that you know what he is. You don't have to, but personally, I'd want to know exactly what I believe. it doesn't really matter though.

But that's the thing. If there's no wrong in Heaven, we don't need to be tested, because we will only be doing good in Heaven, since there is no wrong, right?

You must note that this was said before Jesus came, since then a god amount of things changed. After that it is said no where that all homosexuals should be killed.
True enough, but the bible still says it, nonetheless. What they should have done is removed the old testament from the bible when the new one came. The fact that it still remains shows that Christians (even if only a handful) believed that it had truth and worth (which moral logic contradicts).
