“Absent from the Body, Present with the Lord” -Heaven at Death or Resurrection Hope?

In this short video I demonstrate that 2 Corinthians 5:8 almost certainly refers to Paul’s hope for the return of Jesus in order to cloth him with his resurrection body. The popular view, which suggests that Paul is here teaching that his immortal soul leaves his body at death to go to be present with the Lord in heaven, is to be rejected as confused.

Be sure to share this video if you think it will speak truth to others.

  1. Though you didn’t say it you apparently believe in a “soul sleep” state upon the death of a believer? Or did I hear you disavow the existence of an indwelling soul or spirit altogether?
