If you've been following "The Barron Blog" for any length of time, you would know a "New Age Vision Of Christianity" is coming through these pages.
I'm not dealing with experiences from 1st century Christianity, but Christianity as it developed over the last 1900 years. It would not be enough just to obtain rudimentary salvation of an individual soul and its memory. The being saved would have to be empowered sufficiently to operate as a guardian angel, healing spirit, invisible warrior, etc. This is development towards being a spiritual superhero or a son of God.
It's a thankless difficult job handling the lost and weak souls on earth, but someone has to do it.
Part of the training is being able to handle and build different bodies from different civilizations(e.g. cyborg, android, photonic, stick, doll, liquid, etc.) Another part of the training involves handling high tech equipment like space ships, advanced computer systems, virtual reality machines, etc.
Those who have difficulty coping with advanced technology of one kind or another are relegated to "The Continuum Worlds". Basically, these are worlds that look like the one you recently died out of: "Amish Paradise", "The Big Post Office In The Sky", "Jehovah Witness Sleeping Area." These would be part of speciality continuums.
Being trained to operate effectively without a body on earth could take a long time. The end result, however, would be a viable superbeing and son of God that can effectively improve conditions here.
Does this appeal to you? Maybe you'd just like to go to a quiet rest(nursing?)home in paradise or bum around a high-tech Disneyland.
