The concept of being outside time is beyond my mind's capacity to understand. I would even say that the way you described it (Dann) is not convincing either, for I believe it to be far more complicated.So, back to the original question...from Scripture, do you think it implies that man goes to heaven or hell immediatly following death? And also, what do you think became of Old Testament people?Well, maybe I should throw something in here:Luke 23:43 - [i]"Jesus answered him, 'I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.'"[/i]and1 Corinthians 15:51-52 - [i]"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."[/i]
