Eschatology – Ok…soo….
I’m reading Jurgen Moltmann’s The Coming of God. This is a dense theological book about eschatology, which is so dense I probably have no business reading it.
But that has never stopped me before…
So..I’m reading about personal eschatology – you know – what will happen when, as we are to taught to believe, the resurrection of the body occurs – the life of the world to come…And it got me to thinking. (Dangerous, I know…)
IF we are all raised bodily – you know – all these good dead Christians, Jews, and some others who will unwittingly make themselve eligible for the parousia by virture of leading a more Christian life than most Christians – Exactly wtf is it that we are all going to live? Hmmm??? Earth is already fairly over populated with the living. What the hell are we going to do if suddenly, bodily resurrection occurs, and beings in their whole, with their Gestalt spiritual AND physical needs, are now pulling on the earth’s meager resources. What then? HMMM???
I mean…A LOT of people who called themselves Christians have died. Even if only a small percentage of them get resurrected…that’s likely a HUGE number.
So…that’s where I am with that. Y’all can carry on now.
ETA: Rick thinks maybe we’ll all come back tiny…like Liliputians! (bwahahahahaa!)
