What is the official church positions on whether a person retains individual consciousness in heaven for these two religions?
That should say Question and I don’t know why it doesn’t. It says “Question” when I go back in Explorer.
I fixed the title for you.
Thank you, Czarcasm.
What an interesting combination. Why Catholics and Presbyterians? You don’t mean Catholics and Protestants, do you?
Answer to question is “Yes”. God made us individually, albeit with the capacity to choose to work and live in harmony. In fact, according to some philosophers, just cooperating and living peacefully is a small slice of heaven in and of itself. One retains full choice in heaven.
Save for one little thing: Mankind, having recieved the grace of God, would no longer sin. In fact, purged of all evil, we would become like Angels in many respects. And unlike the fallen ones, we would truly be free of evil.
