According to N.T. Wright, the rabbis said of the Sadducees, “those who don’t believe in the resurrection won’t attain it.” Really? Isn’t that convenient. SO the people you don’t agree with can’t possibly make it to heaven. In fact, they just stay in the ground. Bah – as if you are saved by getting a high score on the theology quiz at the pearly gates and not by the holy immortal Son of God who actually raises everyone from the dead all by himself, whether they like it or not. Yes, they will be judged, but when he blows that terrible trumpet blast, NO ONE will be sleeping any longer. Not even the Sadducees. This sort of thing is why I don’t like the opening line of the Athanasian Creed. Sorry.
