153. How should we interpret eternal life?

“The life of the spirit is eternal, while that of the body is ephemeral. When the body dies, the soul re-enters eternal life.”

a) Would it be more accurate to use the term eternal life for that of purified spirits, as they have reached relative perfection and no longer endure any trials and tribulations?

“That would be eternal happiness, but this is a question of words. You may call things whatever you want, provided you reach a collective agreement among yourselves regarding the meaning.”
