Your opening post was pretty much crystal clear.
Well, that is
the reason that I wrote it.
I hope when or if I get resurrected, I will be able to shred on my guitar!!!
No "if" about it.
The argument here, of course, is that it has "alreadyy occurred". You just have not yet received any memories
of those previous lives;
something which, of course, could change in an instant...
Especially if you fall head over heels in love and the relationship does NOT succeed.
The Vision of the "Son of man" is a Revelation which is received in solitude; the Revelation of the "resurrection" emerges out of the context of a
very intense experience of sorrow in the context of a relationship
This, of course, is why many of the apostles of Jesus received those memories at the time of the crucifixion of Jesus, as is described figuratively in
the Gospel of Matthew
Now Paul, of course, condemns as heretic
anyone who says that the "resurrection" has "already occurred".
He even names them specifically in 2 Timothy 2:something or other.
And the fundamental perversion of that Doctrine lead Peter to choose to be crucified upside down as a sign that the church that he started would
ultimately turn the Teaching of Jesus upside down.
Although, to say so, would probably be considered "hate speech".
