Does this scripture not say we are going to eternity with our human deformities?

And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It’s better to enter eternal life with only one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.b

It says "Entering ETERNAL LIFE" with one friggin' eye

does that mean Jehovah is going to let me live for eternity in paradise with my hairlip

    Believers in Jesus enter into life, which is life eternal, whenever they become Christians. Romans 6:13 speaks of them "as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness. For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace."

    The transference is accomplished in the here and now. They enter into the Kingdom, becoming children of God. It's a spiritual event, just as Jesus' words deal with a spiritual situation, not a literal, physical thing. Nobody in their right mind has ever thought that Jesus is telling people who lust after someone not their wife to literally gouge one of their eyes out! Besides, most men would still lust, even with one eye! They'd have to gouge out two eyes, and even then their hearts would still lust. We all know Jesus was not speaking literally.

    There will be no deformity in the Kingdom of God.

    We will not have a "body" as we know it today. The spirit (our soul) will enter paradise but nothing physical will. We will have a new, heavenly body different from our earthly one.

    “ Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, (die) but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality" (1 Corinthians 15:50-55).

    Pluck it out - cut it off -

    We must shut our senses against dangerous objects, to avoid the occasions of sin, and deprive ourselves of all that is most dear and profitable to us, in order to save our souls, when we find that these dear and profitable things, however innocent in themselves, cause us to sin against God.

    It is profitable for thee that one of thy members -

    Men often part with some members of the body, at the discretion of a surgeon, that they may preserve the trunk, and die a little later; and yet they will not deprive themselves of a look, a touch, a small pleasure, which endanger the eternal death of the soul. It is not enough to shut the eye, or stop the hand; the one must be plucked out, and the other cut off. Neither is this enough, we must cast them both from us. Not one moment’s truce with an evil passion, or a sinful appetite. If you indulge them, they will gain strength, and you shall be ruined. The rabbins have a saying similar to this: “It is better for thee to be scorched with a little fire in this world, than to be burned with a devouring fire in the world to come.”
