Augustine, Luther and Calvin - although Bible literalists in many ways - all rejected a literal, future resurrection of the dead . It was absolutely incompatible with their wrathful belief in Original Sin. Salvation, for them, was available to Christians alone. However the 1,000 year resurrection provides a time and a place when all nations, religions and races will be free to choose between righteousness and evil. Salvation is available to all who seek righteousness because there is one God, the creator all and, yes, as New Age-y as it might sound, we are all beloved children.
