Joachim, who almost managed to convert three popes to his heresy, adopted the thesis that there are destined to be in history, not just two Ages (pre- and post-Christian) as orthodox Christians believe, but a Third Age aborning, of which he was the prophet. The Muslims will prepare a detachment (for fighting unto death) which will not return unless victorious. For they shall pasture and lie down, and none shall make them afraid" (3:12–13). We foresee the feasibility of redesigning the human condition, including such parameters as the inevitability of aging, limitations on human and artificial intellects, unchosen psychology, suffering, and our confinement to the planet earth.” 14 Another definition is offered by Nick Bostrom: “Transhumanists view human nature as a work-in-progress, a half-baked beginning that we can learn to remold in desirable ways.

Christianity has a number of theories about what will happen at the end of the world. Our canon has a room on IRC: #eschatology. Why should Christians settle for the anemic goal of eternity spent in heaven when the Bible's robust vision is one of a resurrected humanity on the new earth? They say that the Nephilim (demigod giants who are the offspring of fallen angels and human women), proliferated at such a rate during Noah’s day, that it resulted in an almost complete destruction of the human race through genetic corruption with Nephilim DNA.

The Messianic kingdom, being at best of mere earthly splendor, could not form the end, and so the Great Judgment was placed at its close and following the Resurrection. The synoptic gospels have relatively few references to the Spirit, but their eschatological significance can be seen once we recognize that the kingdom proclaimed by Jesus is an eschatological entity, already present (as well as still in the future) in his person and work. And maybe they aren’t the kind of folk that are willing to kill their own people?

This concept of transmigration, or metempsychosis, made possible the introduction into the future life of subtle moral distinctions, involving not only punishments and rewards for conduct in a previous stage of existence but also the possibility of rising or falling in the scale of being according to present conduct. His payment for our sin forms the backbone of the Gospel. Also, it would be helpful to see premillennialists do more to harmonize the references to the new heavens and new earth in Isaiah 65:17 and 66:22 with their New Testament counterparts in 2 Peter 3:13 and Revelation 21:1.

The believer's crowns are not royaldiadems (Grk=diadema), but champions’ prize-wreaths (Grk=stephanos) of glory. Paul spoke in 1 Co.15:51-52 and 1Th 4:15-18 of the living being “changed in an instant” and being “caught up into heaven” with the dead to be with Christ at his coming.

In the intertestamental lit. the messiah is sometimes presented as a passive ruler over a transfigured Israel (Enoch 83-90); at other times he is a warrior who slays his enemies with his own hands (Sib Oracles 3:652-660l), or by the word of his mouth, ruling in justice and holiness (Pss Sol 17:27, 31, 37, 39, 41).

(To break up the pedantry here, there is an amusing anecdote on this -a cake and eat it too theology- where the Sunday school teacher asks the little boy who he'd like to be.
