26. THE QUESTION WAS:
The moment we die, our souls are detached from our bodies.
When are our bodies reunited with our souls for eternity?
a. Judgment Day
b. When we leave purgatory
c. 40 days after dying
THE ANSWER IS .A Our souls and our bodies will be reunited on Judgment Day, which is the last day of Earth, which is the day Christ will return to Earth in glory to judge the living and the dead.
Those in heaven get glorified bodies, which will be incorruptible. They will never be sick or feel pain again. Those in hell get bodies which will feel severe pain. No matter how severe the pain, the bodies will be incapable of dying.
Our bodies are sacred, and well have them eternally, so we are called to take care of them.
