No doubt the natural love for parents and kindred will be spiritualized, but it will certainly not be destroyed. In heaven we shall be supernatural, not unnatural. He that has decreed the resurrection of the body, certainly wishes us eternally to lead natural human lives, glorified and exalted indeed, but not changed into something inhuman and alien to the instincts He Himself has instilled in our breast.
