It is my impression that there are plenty of Christians through the entire history of the faith who do not want to follow Jesus to the resurrected (embodied) life everlasting he promised; but want instead to live a spirit life outside of time and space: they want some version of Nirvana.
They do not want a body - because bodies are dynamic, differentiated and localised, and represent a point-of-view; instead they want to be homogeneous, everywhere, and to see everything, all the time, equally, from everywhere without change. For them, anything other (or less) than this is incomplete, because personal.
Such people are motivated by a strong aversion to the human condition (past, present and in any possible future) mortality, to this corruptible, illusory and intinsically flawed world; in their hearts they regard this our life and earth as a mistake; something it would be better not to have been.
Their 'Heaven' is not this life raised to divinity; but something qualitatively-other than this life - hence the tendency to express what is Good in terms of denials and negatives; what it is not.
For such people, the ideal state is an eternal present moment; their ideal is perfection - which means no change; their idea of love is an unvarying state of absolute and complete and undivided being - which means no change.
They want happiness to be absolute and unalloyed; they want nothing of desire, variation, striving, or sorrow- because these are incomplete, and finite states.
They want an end to consciousness, self-awareness, to their own separation from divinity - they want to cease being a person - an 'ego', cease being aware that they ever were a person - to be assimilated back to divinity - without a residue to memory or hope, but instead an eternal bliss-full now.
Such people want nothing more than peace*; in the sense of absolute silence, stillness, cessation...
What such people want is always expressed either negatively or as infinites and abstractions. They emphasise that mystery is the highest understanding, because their Heaven is everything Good all at once - there can be nothing to want, nothing unsatisfied.
The difficulty is this group who don't really want what Jesus offers, but something else, have probably included plenty of the most famous, prestigious, influential Christians: great theologians, contemplatives, saints, theologians.
I suspect that this misunderstanding, this projection of what such people want onto what Jesus actually offered, is a source of sadness but not surprise to Jesus himself. I think he will be disappointed but not angry - because this is just the kind of thing that people do, and in a sense can't help doing.
What Jesus truly offered was simple, and can be known by anybody, anywhere at any time - by direct intuitive revelation meeting the desire of a true self. It can - and shall - be known (or at least offered for knowing) to every human spirit after death.
Only at that point will the people I describe realise that they never did want what Jesus came to bring us - but wanted something qualitatively different. They will find out that they never were followers of Christ, because they do not want to go where Christ went. Their hope does not need Jesus.
I don't seriously doubt that God will give them what they want (if they continue to want it, when given the chance to understand accurately) - but it will not be the Heavenly Life Everlasting that Jesus made possible.
Their fate will be individually-tailored, but of the same kind ('Nirvana') as is sought more straightforwardly by the Eastern deistic and theistic religions.
That Heavenly destination and life will be for other people, who do want it; and who will therefore literally follow Jesus through death, through transformation and resurrection, to reach Heaven.
*When people wish for the dead that they will Rest in Peace - and mean by it the modern understanding of 'peace' - then perhaps they do not really want what Jesus was offering.
