I've been reading up on Augustinian theology of time recently and while it's interesting, I can't find a clear answer to my question. According to Augustine, will we be Eternal in the same sense as God in heaven, as in timeless changelessness, or will our "eternity" merely mean endless time and succession? It's clear that with regards to God eternity means timelessness, but I'm not sure if that applies to us in heaven/after the ressurection. Anyone got any idea? And if so, what's the point of the ressurected body?

  • God alone is eternal. Eternal life is a gift which he gives. Those who possess eternal life, as a gift - now, in this life - shall be raised in a glorified body suited to that gift. Other than that, I am not clear as to your own definitions. Some more clarity and detail would be helpful. As to Augustine, that is a matter of studying his words and working out what he has stated in his own writings, but one needs to clearly understand your own definitions before looking at Augustine.
