Not quite what I meant... I meant more of his presence can be felt in everything, after all he did create it all. I think he is a being of some sort, though I don't think he is restricted to residing in only one form of existence. Meaning he could appear as anything he wanted to. Like he did to Moses, he appeared as a burning bush.

People could show their love to me there.
It's easy to Love when all is perfect around you. It's much more difficult to Love when you face challenges, the likes of which you will not ever face in Heaven. Also, there's the whole thing in the beginning with Adam and Eve.. Before that we did basically start out in Heaven.

There will probably be some truth, yes, but that doesn't refute that fact that it still has a lot of scriptures which I am quite simply shocked by - unlike the new testament.
While that may be true, if you omitted those things, then you wouldn't be able to see the changes that transpired after Jesus' coming as well as you could with those sections in the OT.

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

A friend is one who knows you, but loves you anyway.
