For the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be complete ...full, whole ... it must include two main parts: the Earth side and the Heaven side. The Apostle Paul said that if we only have hope in Christ after we die, we are to be pitied more than all men.
First of all, we are spirit with a mind which is part of our soul, living in a body, our "Earth Suit", which allows us to function in both the physical and spiritual realms.
We are living here right now in the tangible, physical Earth realm. In the future we will be living in the spiritual realm. God needs and wants to be the major Player in our lives in both of these realms. This means that we need to have a life in Christ that benefits us here and now ... and one which will benefit us later in Heaven.
