Is the highest tier of heaven a paradise for pedophiles?

cherubsAccording to scientist/theologian Emanuel Swedenborg, he directly observed the angels of God’s highest heaven. He reported that they were all naked and looked like little children.

Of course, since heaven is a non-physical realm, we have to give Swedenborg’s observation spiritual considerations, too. Since individuals in the spiritual world are seen according to the qualities of their heart (and according to the qualities of the observers’ hearts), this picture is not the same for everyone.

The reason why angels of this highest level of heaven (who are closest to the Lord God) look like naked children is because they live and act with the greatest degree of innocence. Therefore, they are seen in a heavenly form that most communicates (and corresponds to) this innocence—no matter how old they are.

Since a pedophile is not in a mental state of spiritual innocence and purity, such a heavenly view would only cause the quality of a nefarious spirit to detect fear, self-horror and a choking atmosphere (which envelops this rarefied heaven from the activity and exhalations of those angels who most perfectly emulate innocence). Evil individuals love opposite things from that of the highest angels and cannot endure the atmospheres and environments created by these angels, who support an opposing love.

What is unknown to the majority of the human race is that the biospheres of the different regions of the spiritual world reflect the qualities of those inhabiting these realms. Therefore, final justice is self-imposed on each human spirit after the death of their terrestrial bodies and they then gravitate to the region that supports their genus and species of love. This love reflects the innermost nature and fiber of their spirit!

Each of us is currently cultivating the things we desire and love most. Where will your love take you?
