Heavens’ Slums?

Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada

Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada

Could Lake Louise be considered Heaven’s Slums? Obviously I don’t believe that heaven will have slums but recently I’ve been contemplating the beauty and majesty we will experience in heaven. The more I read about heaven, the more I realize that this world’s beauty won’t even come close to it’s majesty. One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been is Alberta, Canada. I’m overwhelmed that the Canadian Rockies are only a “taste” of what’s to come.

Revelation 21:18-23 The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald, the fifth sardonyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass. I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.”
