    First problem is that our temporal eternity has a beginning, creation.
    God's eternity is timeless, unless one is involved in process theology or
    stuck in Greek theory.
    Second, the resurrected body is soma pneumatikos (spiritual), whereas our
    current body is psychikos (translated natural, literally soulish). How
    spirit and soul affect body is, in my mind, highly speculative.
