Chap. xxxii. Of the state of men after death and of the Resurrection of the dead S


THE bodies of men after death return to dust and see corruption but their souls (which neither die nor sleep) having an immortall subsistence immediatly return to God who gave them the souls of the righteous being then made perfect in holiness are received into the highest heavens where they behold the face of God in light and glory waiting for the full redemption of their bodies and the souls of the wicked are cast into hell where they remain in torments and utter darkness reserved to the judgement of the great day Besides these two places for souls seperated from their bodies the scripture acknowledgeth none


AT the last day such as are found alive shall not die but be changed and all the dead shall be raised up with the self same bodies and none other although with different qualities which shall be united again to their souls for ever


THE bodies of the unjust shall by the power of Christ be raised to dishonour the bodies of the just by his spirit unto honour and be made conformable to his own glorious body
