First Corinthians 15:22


I read this yesterday;

Now I have always leaned on this verse as a cornerstone to hoping that UR is true. Does this put a chink in my armor?

Why or why not?


Well since eternity is not a place, whoever interpreted this verse, did so with a temporal understanding.

I like the Message Bible’s interpretation.

1 Corinthians 15:22 (The Message)

21-28There is a nice symmetry in this: Death initially came by a man, and resurrection from death came by a man. Everybody dies in Adam; everybody comes alive in Christ. But we have to wait our turn: Christ is first, then those with him at his Coming, the grand consummation when, after crushing the opposition, he hands over his kingdom to God the Father. He won’t let up until the last enemy is down—and the very last enemy is death! As the psalmist said, “He laid them low, one and all; he walked all over them.” When Scripture says that “he walked all over them,” it’s obvious that he couldn’t at the same time be walked on. When everything and everyone is finally under God’s rule, the Son will step down, taking his place with everyone else, showing that God’s rule is absolutely comprehensive—a perfect ending!
