We are told that Christ was killed for us, that His death has washed out our sins, and that by dying He disable death itself. That is the formula. That is Christianity. That is what has to be believed.
— C. S. Lewis
What is our death but a night’s sleep? For as through sleep all weariness and faintness pass away and cease, and the powers of the spirit come back again, so that in the morning we rise fresh and strong and joyous; so at the Last Day we shall rise again as if we had only slept a night, and shall be fresh and strong.
— Martin Luther
