    You also think that Justification by faith is nonsense.
    Robert,

    The use of sleep is an "earthy" phrase, similar to Jesus' expression, John 11:11, "Lazarus sleeps," Paul's , "...many sleep," "sleep in Jesus," and Peter's, "...for since the fathers fell asleep," and to Stephen's martyrdom, "...he fell asleep."

    No one that is thinking aright by how the term is used in Scripture thinks that this "sleep" is a denial of the alertness of the soul in the intermediate state. Rather it is a phrase that has in view the appearance of one recently dead.

    The word "sleep" in the New Testament is very proper. When we sleep we are not conscious as to what is going on, otherwise it is not sleep. Some have been sleeping for thousands of years, but will awake at the last trump, 1 Corinthians 15:52. The word "death" means the permanent end of life. Those that have died "In Christ" are not really dead because they will live again.
