What do these mean, I have read some Karl Rahner books which make the subject extremly vague, some writtings by Pope Benedict 16 but he beats aroudn the bush it seems to the point of vagueness as well and the catechism is to short and does not give enough detail.
Can someone help give me some answers to this (not a 2 word answer either). I know literally Christ will come and judge all mankind and usher in a new Jerusalem etc, what does that mena though?!
All human beings that have ever lived are part of a finite line leading to eternity. Obviously no-one but the Father knows when time is up, and we are to stand ready every single day in joyful anticipation of Jesus’ return.
God is essentially building His eternal family to join Him in the New Jerusalem (Heaven) through all eternity.
Jesus will return and make a final judgment of all souls, past, present and the souls alive at the time of His return.
I was lookgin for something a little more concrete than that. I neeed to do a full page on the dffference btw the general and partiuclar resurrection… a page on what the 2nd coming, resurrection of the bodies and ushering in of the new jerusalem means…
and going along with that line of reasoning then what is the difference btw being in hell after the particular judgment but before the general? IS their an experiental difference? This is why i said i need more than 2 line answers
