St. Paul called his body "this body of death". Romans 7:24 (NRSV)
This is because the body dies but the spirit lives on.
And so 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: 23 (NRSV)
But death is no place, no state, so kingdom.
Eternity, however, Eternal Life, is now.
My body is alive now.
I am never separated from God.
And I experience His Life in my body which is Love.
