An often overlooked blessing of our resurrection is the absence of corruption in our new resurrected body. There will be no more evil desire against which we must fight.

A READING FROM THE BOOK OF CONCORDTHE RESURRECTION OF OUR LORD
FORMULA OF CONCORD, SOLID DECLARATIONARTICLE I: ORIGINAL SIN

In the article of the Resurrection Scripture testifies that precisely the substance of our flesh, but without sin, will rise again (1 Corinthians 15:42,54-57). In eternal life we shall have and keep precisely this soul, but without sin.

If there was no difference at all between our corrupt body and soul and original sin, one of the following would be true (contrary to this article of the Christian faith): our flesh will not rise again at the Last Day, and in eternal life we shall not have the present essence of our body and soul, but another substance (or another soul), because then we shall be without sin. Or at the Last Day sin will also rise again and will be and remain in the elect in eternal life.

It is clear that this teaching (with all that depends on it and follows from it) must be rejected. For it is asserted and taught that original sin is the nature, substance, essence, body, or soul itself of corrupt mankind. It is taught that between our corrupt nature, substance, and essence and original sin there is no distinction whatever. For the chief articles of our Christian faith forcefully and emphatically testify why a distinction should and must be maintained between mankind's nature or substance (which is corrupted by sin) and the sin (with which and by which mankind is corrupted). [To conclude: the substance of our flesh and soul, without sin, will be raised to eternal life.] (paragraphs 46-48)
