Universal Resurrection – The Philosophical Salon
“To argue against salvation is as mad, it seems, as salvation itself.
What would we be as beings that cannot die? This question seems innocent
and has been asked many times already. But the question is insistent.
To imagine a life not limited by death has to be far more difficult than
it may appear, if, indeed, it is not impossible. What would be a being
without concern for its own existence? This new being would have to be
radically different from any being we know: and it cannot be as we are
now because it is precisely what we are not since it is not
limited by suffering and death. In this respect, the simple irony of
universal resurrection is that it is the end of our life and of any life
as we know it—it is a radical turning away or departure.”
