Disability in Heaven?

“Disability in Heaven”.  That was the title of the article that I was reading.

How can there be disability in Heaven?  I wasn’t actually going to read this particular article until I saw the title.  I was so shocked that I had to read it.

The writer was arguing that there will be disability in Heaven.  One of the reasons given is that people with disability will not know how to function without their disability.

The writer goes on to say that there are people who don’t want to be healed and that we should not pray for healing for them.

I do not have a disability but a debilitating health condition.   I have no doubt whatsoever that I will be perfect in Heaven.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful” – Revelation 21:4-5
