Salvation as Restoration of Human Nature

“Through his sin Adam perverted human nature by causing humanity to lose the ‘glory of God,’ which corrupted our reflection of God’s image. Salvation is not a further diminution of human nature, for we do not simply leave our bodies behind us as our souls float up to heaven. Rather, salvation is a restoration of human nature as God intended it. He raises believers from the dead bodily, just like Christ, by restoring their participation in divine glory with Christ.”

– Ben Blackwell, Reading Romans in Context, p. 112.
