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?

I've heard it said that if God can make us out of nothing he can sure put us back together WITH something.
