17. The resurrection of flesh
1. The resurrection of flesh
Every day people die, and some of them are relatives, friends or acquitances. Some of them are old people, some young or even children. Death is the separation between body and soul. The body start to decay few hours after death, but the soul is inmortal, that is, it cannot die.
At death, man is presented to God to be judged according to his works. From this judgement he can go to Heaven- to stay with God -, to Purgatory- if he needs to be purified- or to Hell if he dies in deadly sinand without the grace of God.
We, as christians, believe in the resurrection of the dead. At the end of times, during final judgement, all of us resurrected with our own body. Bodies joined with souls to never die again. Jesus resurrected and defeated Death, and we will do it with him.
