A HOUSE NOT MADE WITH HANDS
When we are about to pull down a house, intending to rebuild it, we remove the inhabitants out of it, lest they should be injured by the fall, and we provide for them some temporary residence; but when we have rebuilt the house, then we bring them back to a much better habitation. Thus God, when He pulls down the body, calls but the soul for a little time, and lodges it with Himself in some other place while He is repairing our bodies against the resurrection; and then, having made them beautiful and glorious. He replaces our souls again in their former habitations. (2 Cor. 5.1).
