Great Regulars: The upshot of this is that death

makes sense, not as something natural, but as something condign: a just punishment for a grievous transgression, "the proper existential response" to which is "to think of the badness of death in conjunction with the still greater badness of the previous fault, and freely submit to the punishment."

I mention all this, not to argue in favor of it, or to object to it, but simply because I think it is so different from what we usually hear on the subject.

from Frank Wilson: When Falls the Coliseum: That's What He Said: The resurrection of the body
