The Tidings of the Resurrection (Author: [unknown])

section 31

This, then, is the death of the soul, its perishing and departure, through sins and vices, from the all-golden life, that is, from God. For as the soul is the life of the body so God is the life of the soul. And as the death of the body is its departure from the soul, so the death of the soul is its departure from God because of its sins and its vices. Then, however, there is a resurrection for the soul, when it returns, through virtues and good works, to the Lord, and that is possible no other way except through the voice of the Son of God, that is, through fulfilment of the teaching of the Lord.
