St. Paul called his body "this body of death" Romans 7:24b (NRSV)
This is because the body dies but the spirit lives on.
And he assumed that all physical pleasures were sinful and brought about death to God. This is abstract thinking extrapolated from the material.
"For the wages of sin is death." Romans 6:23a (NRSV)
But eternity, eternal life is now.
My body is alive now.
Death is no place, no state, no kingdom.
I am never separated from God.
And I experience His Life in my body which is Love.
