This question seems to based on a misunderstanding of a difficult to interpret Bible verses.Here they are in ancient language:
2 Corinthians 5:7-9 (King James Version)
7For we walk by faith, not by sight.
8We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
9Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
And here are the same verses in modern English:
2 Corinthians 5:7-9 (Contemporary English Version)
7But we live by faith, not by what we see. 8We should be cheerful, because we would rather leave these bodies and be at home with the Lord. 9But whether we are at home with the Lord or away from him, we still try our best to please him.
