Thanks for posting that! In the analogy between Christ rising on the third day and the imminent desirability of acting rightly, I saw a point of similarity with what we Methodists would call “holiness” in our particular sense. I was also reminded (no surprise) of the doctrine of resurrection of the body, which, as I understand, even Aquinas found somewhat problematic (e.g. how God would reconstitute the cannibal and his victims). I am inclined to accept metempsychosis, which I think eliminates the philosophical and scientific problems of resurrection of the body. Now there’s grist for a future discussion! In any case, we’ll all find out one day, won’t we?
