    Christians have an unfortunate tendency to use the word ‘heaven’ as an eschatological term for the eternal state.

    Heaven is a place, not an event. I believe Christians have an heavenly destiny (unlike N.T. Wright, I believe), but to use the word heaven in an eschatological sense is unbiblical and clumsy.

    God Bless

    NT Wright believes that our eternal state is the new heavens and earth (or better renewed heavens and earth.)

  3. Matthew C / Apr 8 2007 2:52 pm

    I believe that resurrected Christians will dwell in the heavens and the heavenly city, but those converted during the Millennium will dwell in the New Earth in non-glorified bodies.

    What about after the millennium? Will those believers receive glorified bodies? Do they then go to heaven?

    I guess texts like 1 Thess. 4 and 1 Cor. 15 make me think that all believers will receive glorified bodies at the Second Coming.

    No, I believe they will not be resurrected, having never died and there not being another rapture (translation).

    They will stay earthly for eternity. And continue to marry and have children.

    Will those “earthly believers” die?
