    Says the guy that interpreted it to take place in heaven because he saw the word heaven which has multiple meanings. What is poor about my interpretation?

    No one said it is. You said we were off topic because when isn't in the parable, but verse 8 does. Since the parable was told because of what preceded, and what preceded tells us when, it is perfectly acceptable to discuss.

    These concepts aren't in the context. Contexts and parables do have limitations.
