Rats on a Ship?
« on: April 01, 2019, 07:56:15 am »
One can imagine a very different scenario in early Christianity, that hearing Paul preaching about Heaven the disgruntled listeners would've challenged him, "Earth is already a heavenly place and these are fantastic bodies. What are you offering that could possibly improve this?"

Instead with the mere whisper of a "better place," humans are ready to jump like rats on a sinking ship. They didn't even ask Paul to fill in any details about how heavenly society would be different or how the bodies would be better. It's good they didn't ask, for he did not know.
