    The difficult thing for me to understand is this idea of the attainment of
    perfection. Does that mean we no longer change nor develop? Does that mean
    we have perfect knowledge? Does that also mean that all species will live in
    harmony and nothing will die? Does perfection leave room for individual

    You raise some good questions. I've always (well, for as long as I can
    recall) been under the impression that, eventually, Jesus will physically
    return to earth and will usher in a new heaven and new earth with believers
    as its inhabitants ("I believe in the resurrection of the body"). At that
    point, I would think that perfection will been been accomplished. One could
    also ask, if we are to have eternal life, will there then still be the
    concept of time? If not, IMHO, evolution then be inconsistent, as it
    requires a dimension of time.
