THE GREAT APOSTLE Paul declared even as the earthly body undergoes radical transformation, death does not render it shelterless. The deteriorating earthly tent is replaced with an eternal home in the heavens. “For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” (II Corinthians  5:1)
