If we will have physical resurrected bodies that are immortal, indestructible, incorruptible, perfect, strong, healthy, everlasting, ever living, my question is how much can we expect to be capable of?

As immortals could we swim under water for extended lengths of time without coming up for air? How could we drown if our bodies are immortal?

Could we jump from a high cliff landing on our feet unharmed leaving a crater in the ground?

Could we survive in the vacuum of space or on the surface of the sun or the bottom of the sea?

This really does need to be scoped to a particular denomination. We had this discussion with a related question:… – Matt Gutting Jul 7 '14 at 17:49
Well I thought it some what different being that this question refers to our resurrection bodies rather than christ's but I do see your point. I still hope some people will answer as food for thought about what kind of activities will be at hand for us , like under water voyages. – eliyah Jul 7 '14 at 18:10
It is different; that's why I noted it as 'related'. Following the discussion I had on it on meta,…, you might want to specifically mark this as an overview question. – Matt Gutting Jul 7 '14 at 18:22
This is kind of a general philosophy question. That is off-topic. To bring it into site guidelines you need to scope this to a specific doctrinal framework. Reference: question types that the community finds acceptable. – fredsbend Jul 7 '14 at 18:42

1 Answer 1

Some of the questions asked, at least to my knowledge, are unanswerable as we are not told.

The closest one that could be answered is the one about the sea, as we are told it is no more in Revelation 21:1

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth. The former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.

As far as everything else goes, even as immortals, we would simply turn to the Word:

Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God

Thank you, you are correct, my heart gets excited in me just thinking of the implications of the resurrected body's capacity of enjoyment and adventure – eliyah Jul 7 '14 at 18:19
