^^^^Yeah. What or who is it that will be brought back to be judged?
I hadn't intended it to be read that way but that is a cool version/idea/question. More in keeping with kcrady's post.
My idea was intended (however poorly worded) to point out the massive change death is and assuming we have a soul that enables us to 'live' on we would still not be the same person because of the literally soul-altering change wrought in us by experiencing death. The (presumed) soul goes from being housed in a familiar body with a set of senses to a bodiless existence - however temporarily - that is radically different.
During the end of my time as a believer when I was trying to work out how this stuff could be real, I realized that getting a new meat suit in heaven would be strange at best so we would have to be living in heaven as our meatless soul. But then you have the problem of being so different from your genuinely living days that going to heaven or hell would be beyond illogical.
And a new meat suit? What age is it? What condition is it in? And the questions just pile up with no answers.
As for the idea we just rot in the ground until we're reconstituted - that makes no sense whatsoever. It makes more sense to say people in the future will dig us up and clone us. <--- Now take that sentence and send it into the past and you've got a better answer to what was meant. Yes, I and whoever develops time travel for webpages just created that bible passage.
But to reconstitute us only to kill us again? Who makes a bowl of stew only to pour it into the garbage disposal? Only an idiot.
Operation is not demonstration, so he can pee in his pants and still claim it is not wet.
Thank you for this.
