Giles Fraser gave the Thought for the Day on Ash Wednesday. I have had two people ask me what I thought about it! The transcript is here.
What Fraser actually says - so far as it goes - I would actually largely agree with, ie I also don't "subscribe to Platonic ideas about the immortality of the soul. When you die, you die", and also, "When theologians... speak of entering eternity they mean something altogether different from this: for eternity is outside of time". So far so good (nb great weight on 'Platonic ideas' about immortality, not immortality per se). Where Fraser goes against orthodoxy, so far as I can tell, is that he stops there. What he has missed out is the rather central teaching about resurrection!! Orthodoxy doesn't teach a disembodied future, it teaches that there will be a general resurrection, wherein we will each experience in the future what Jesus experienced in the past. If I am right in how I read him, I have to say I have difficulty understanding how he can do what he does. Without some sort of anchoring in this non-symbolic conquering of death I think Christianity loses its point, and becomes just another form of feel-good therapy.
For a good summing up of orthodoxy see Byron's recent post here and listen to this:
UPDATE: a little more from Giles Fraser here, which would suggest that he does accept the resurrection! Well that's alright then :)
