Form of the risen Christ

"...if the cells' dissolution did not reverse, the molecules reknit, the amino acids rekindle, the Church will fall."

I'm glad for those who find comfort in this. The question of the form of the risen Christ has certainly been a master [matter] of debate — and sectarian schism — since he first told Mary not to touch him but allegedly let Tom poke fingers in the holes. Never found it necessary to faith myself to believe in the reanimation of his battered corpse.

I had a JW explain to me once that all 144,000 of the Saved (yes he believed that's all) would be reconstituted from their original molecules, down to the utmost subatomic particle. I asked, you know, what about some part of a past mortal's dust in a present mortal's body? Oh, God keeps track of it all so it can be sorted out on Judgement Day. Right. Seems like an awful lot of tedious heavenly inventorying of matter for a Deity who can build universes from scratch.

He has prepared a place for us, he said. Many mansions. Additional technical details may be intellectually intriguing, but that promise is the part that matters.

I hope this didn't come across as arguing. Blessed Easter FenelonSpeaks! He is risen!
