“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more.”Luke 12:4
I read in the paper that the body of Kim Jong Il is going to be permanently preserved and enshrined in the Memorial Palace (I shot this picture from the paper, my header is a sunset I snapped awhile ago). This is not as unusual as it may seem. Ho Chi Minh has been on display for over 30 years. Also Evita Peron, though people don't talk about it. She is thought to be the best preserved mummy in the world. I won't give the details, but it has to do with bodily fluids and wax. When Lenin died, citizens begged the government to find a way to preserve him. He has been on view since 1924. If you're thinking of visiting, the hours are between one and four P.M. These famous people are long gone from their bodies, but I suppose it is comforting in a way for people to be able to still see them, unchanged. What do YOU think? The bible tells us that we will be changed, though.
"Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.”
1 Corinthians 15
