Christians: How can you possibly enjoy an opera, or a fine meal, or a church service knowing it must End?

Update:

Do you understand how stupid it is to think life has no meaning if it is finite?

And to Bill B. - I guess no once in a lifetime vacations for you. If it can't be repeated, why bother?

Update 2:

Motivational Raven - You nailed it. Anything that was never-ending would be unbearable after a point. Including "ever-lasting life with Jesus"

    Nothing ends. Things just change.

    I get your point, although I wonder how much "meaning" there is in a fine meal, and I'm not a big fan of Opera.

    I think there is more "meaning" in finite lives than any of the examples you've suggested, but I am in agreement that life on Earth is meaningful.

    Okay, I'm onboard with you most times, but you seem to be suggesting no Christian is enjoying this lifetime. I beg to differ. I'm atheist, but I know happy Christians who are enjoying this life.

    I'm thinking if you tweaked your question a little, to fundies or something like that.

    PS: Sorry, apparently I'm missing half the story, I never saw the original Q this parodies....

    i can only enjoy an opera if i know it will end soon. Life has a meaning even though its finite. Its to serve God. At least thats my beleifs as a Christian. if you disagree then im not going to force my beleifs on you.

    All Earthly things will end one day, so why not enjoy them? But a never-ending life with Jesus is my cup of tea

    Massive assumption failure. Most Christians I know to include me think a spiritual life is an existence that is infinitely different without repetition.

    Keep banging that square peg into that round hole.

    ......wait what? All earthly things come to an end. It doesn't mean we shouldn't enjoy them. We enjoy ourselves quite nicely living for a purpose.

    That is HOW we enjoy it, it would not be very enjoyable if those things never ended
