It's too abstract, I can't work with that, how do you make plans for the afterlife? I'm interested in this life, this is where the meat is. If there is a god and he gave me a gift, then this life is it, this is what I've got.
If I did someone wrong yesterday and made it up to them today - or - if I want to stop what I'm doing, think about my mistakes and try to improve - then that's my work, and, if I succeed, my salvation.
As far as I'm concerned, the rest is just fun and games, especially games.
