the Week of Proper 21 / Ordinary 26
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary
In God, is underived and absolute: "who only hath immorality." In creatures, it is dependent upon the will of God. The immortality of the soul is argued from its boundless desires and capacities, is unlimited improvement, its desert of future punishment or reward, etc. All arguments, however, are unsatisfying without the testimony of Scripture. Christ "hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel," 2 Timothy 1:10 : the immortal blessedness of Christians, including the resurrection of the body, is by virtue of their union with Christ, Joshua 14:15 . The everlasting woe of the wicked, the punishment of their sins, runs parallel with the eternal life of the redeemed, Matthew 25:46 .
