I  fail to see what the problem is with the Castle, it is a large building and
needs to be large for the purpose of what it accomplishes. Making it look like
a castle could be just a design to make it look nice. I would think that when
it was built, that the builders wanted to take pride in their work and make
some thing very beautiful. If you were building a large building for
furthering the cause of the Overlord, wouldn't you want to make something
grand and wonderful? What is more grand and wonderful then a castle?
    I would feel that I did not give him my all if I just threw up four walls
a floor and a roof. Why does a castle have to be built just for functional
purpose.
    Jesus said "In my father's house, there are many mansions.", and he was
going before us to prepare a place for us, I hope that the place he has for me
looks like a castle, and there is definitely no need for security in heaven,
LOL.
