Per Spiritum Sanctum Reviviscimus
Rudolf Steiner: "Paul knew that if the Mystery of Golgotha had not taken place, if Christ had not risen, the soul would be involved in the destiny of the body, that is to say in the dispersion of the elements of the body into the elements of the Earth. Had Christ not risen, had he not united Himself with earthly forces, the human soul would unite with the body between birth and death in such a way that the soul would be united, too, with all the molecules which become part of the Earth through cremation or decomposition. It would have come about that at the end of Earth evolution, human souls would go the way of earthly matter. But in that Christ has passed through the Mystery of Golgotha, He wrests this fate away from the human soul. The Earth will go her way in the universe, but just as the human soul can emerge from the single human body, so will all human souls be able to free themselves from the Earth and go forward to a new cosmic existence. Christ is thus intimately united with Earth existence."
