Immortality

I have not the slightest doubt concerning the truth and validity of immortality. I believe absolutely and certainly that, when you die, you will meet your loved ones and know them and be reunited with them, never to be separated again. I believe that identity of personality will continue in that greater sphere of life in which there will be no suffering or sorrow as we know them here in the physical sense. I hope there will be struggle, for struggle is good. Certainly there will be ongoing development, for life with no upward effort of the spirit would be increadibly dull. In the teachings of Jesus Christ, death does not refer to the body but rather to the soul: "The soul that sinneth, it shall die" (Ezekiel 18:20). But the sould that is in God will live forever.
