~after Death ~ Where Do We Emerge?

This is one critical question that demands for critical an@wers both amongst the Christian folks and the general world. There is a life after death, how true is this? When a human being dies where does he go? Heaven or Hell or where? This are arguable questions amongst us Christian. The Bible says in Hebrews "It is appointed unto man, once to die and after this the judgment".

Im sorry to disappoint those that believes in re-incarnation as there is nothing of such.

Pastors & Christians in the house pls tender your critical views on the above subject matter.

Thank you.

@ brein,

I only recently came across your post so I apologise for not contributing on time.  Nevertheless, Truth11, peacemaka and No2Atheism have done justice to the question you posed.

@ Viable,

Are you saying that the likes of Hitler and co. will only suffer death in the grave as a punishment for their sins (that is, if they have not repented before they died) just as those who got killed by him?  Where is the justification and judgment in that, if and when all sinners die and be no more? And for your information, the story of the rich man and Lazarus was the account of an actual event as parables do not contain the names of the characters but this does.

When you're dead,you gone forever!

Your body is six feet under decomposing to form crude oil millions of years later.

SO LIVE YOUR LIFE,YOU'VE GOT ONLY ONE CHANCE. . . .

to add to what Viable said: It amazes me that some christian think that after they die they go to heaven! where does resurrection fit in? you mean to tell me that after you are in heaven, then you will come back down to the grave and be resurrected?

@Ndipe      Quote/question from Ndipe-- What happens to the soul?

A human being is a soul. While alife a human being is a living soul. Dead human being becomes a dead soul. See gen. 2;7-" And the LORD GOD formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life:and man became a LIVING SOUL'

Meaning that human being is made up of two thing:

1. Dust of the ground.

2. The breath of life from God.

When a living soul dies, the remains goes back to the earth/ground and the breath back to the source.

Is like an electric bulb. When you switch it on, the current comes up, but when you switch it off, off the current goes.

The story of lazarus and the rich man is an allegory. Jesus used it to teach that there is no repentance in the grave. An allegory is like a parabble.

Remain Blessed.

1. Blatant lie, I called you no name.

2. Yes, if you are half as wise as I think you to be then there is no need for me to explain. My words speak for themselves within the context of what went on before. If you still want to make an argument out of it please proceed and I might be tempted to indulge you.

3. Perhaps you are not as smart as I took you to be but you said:

4. Not at all, I am in no way more confused than you are.

This question, along with where did we come from? and how do we predict, understand and contol nature? defines all religions. Since the Homo sapiens sapiens came to the realization of the innevitability of death, and hence his morality. He then began the quest for mortality. But on finding out that it is impossible to defeat death, he then created Gods, demons, Spirits, etc that had the ability to not only defeat death but to bestow immortality on those he favours. eg Roman and greek Gods.

But when those Gods outlived their usefulness (they died), so new concepts had to be fashion. Gods that used to be seen by special people who are the ones allowed into the God's abode became and invisible God, that can only be heard (by special people of couse) and not seen. Then physical immortality became spiritual immortality and all sorts of concepts were spawn arround spiritual immortality. We have re-incarnation (a form of physical immortality) and heaven and hell. So man found the comfort he his looking for in spiritual immortility.

I wander if we can have our pets with us in heaven or hell?

to the real question, when we die, we DIE. Our bodies are used to replenish the earth and half of us live through our genes(offsprings)

1. Does that mean it is a fact when Atheist say there is no Creator.

2. Does that mean it is true that Atheist can prove the fact that they believe a creator does not exist

keep on believing in what you believe but don't disparage or write others off for not sharing your beliefs, because it is just what it is a belief and beliefs are not facts. . . . .

1. what is with the name calling, is it not possible for u to make a point without name calling.

2. Is narrowmindedness always a bad thing and broadmindedness always a good thing, please explain.

3. what bar has been raised and how (please explain).

4. I think you are confusing me with some other people you might have encountered.

5. I am not a politically correct bible believer, hence I believe there is only one way to the Heavenly Father and that that one way is the Messiah/Saviour as detailed in the Bible. By the way, I know there is only one way because the Messiah/Saviour said it Himself that there is only one way.

- Islam is not part of the way,

- Talmud based Jewish believes is not part of the way,

- Kabbalism is not part of the way,

- Atheism is not part of the way,

- Deism is not part of the way,

- Polytheism is not part of the way,

- Agnosticism is not part of the way,

- Environmentalism is not part of the way,

- Humanism is not part of the way,

- Catholic Church is not part of the way,

- Apostate bible believers is not part of the way,

- Buddism is not part of the way,

- Hinduism is not part of the way,

- Get rich quick prosperity gospel is not part of the way,

- Billy Graham is not part of the way,

- the Pope is not part of the way,

- Mary, Peter, Paul, John and others are not part of the way (they themselves must be saved),

- Pastors, Bishops, Elders and Deacons are not part of the way

Only the Messiah/Saviour in the Bible is the ONLY WAY, pastors, elders, bishops and other Saved True bible believers are only there to give directions to that only way.

I do appreciate your honesty but I must point out to you that in your narrow mindedness, you are blind to the fact that the bar has been raised (by you religionists of course) and belief in the bible no longer covers all your bases. If you would pursue your reasoning to a logical conclusion, then you should be a believer of all religions and not just a christian.

Yu can choose to beleive what you will, no one has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that an after life exists and you are the sucker for beleiving what has not being conclusively proved. What has been conclusively proven however is that your body decomposes when you die. Any other assumption(s) amounts to claiming to know what you know nothing about, but wait a second, that is the life blood of religion isn't it?

After death the soul leaves the body, the issue of where we go after death is known while we are still alive on this earth, i mean personally you can know where you will emerge after death by your relationship with Christ. As a sinner one goes to hell while a saint will spend eternity in Heaven. If you have not accepted Christ as your your personal Lord and savior, is better you do that now cos no one knows when death will come or when the trumpet of the Lord will sound. You can surrender your life to Christ by following these steps:

a. Accept that you are a sinner

b. Confess your sins

c. Forsake your sins

d. Accept Christ as your personal Lord and savior

e. Ask and pray for the grace to go and sin no more.

Now is the accepted time. do not postpone your salvation. DO IT NOW!!!

I assure you that if you sincerely followed this step then your mind will be @ ease after death that you are going home to God (Heaven)

I have broken down your post into 4 parts. My belief:

1. Yes, there is life after death. "The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried. In hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.'

2. After death soul goes either to paradise or hell.

3. I believe Hebrew verse has much to be read in the verse, `to die once and face judgement' speaks of a long time in between both. For unbelievers on Christ, the final Judgement for sinners is in Rev.20, for believers the judgement seat of Christ as in 2Cor5. So all dead without Christ will wait a long time for final judgement and thrown into the lake of fire. The unbelieving dead however will know immediately on death that they are doomed to hell, ex. the rich man in Luke.

4. There is no re-incarnation, but resurrection of the body of both sinners and saints - unrighteous will be resurrected for eternal damnation and the righteous in Christ to eternal glory.

Unbelievers will scoff these truths of the Bible, but will be enlightened immediately the day they die but too late to realise after death when the fate is sealed.

Believers will live by faith on the Bible while on earth, but cannot prove it to unbelievers - it is by faith. Believers will accept the testimony of the Holy Spirit because their spirits are quickened due to the gospel of Jesus Christ and cleansing through the blood of Jesus Christ. Therefore they are able to hear and believe clearly all of God's word, the Bible.

Blessings.

Nowhere, you decompose and become part of nature and possibly part of your component elements becomes part of someone and you continue the circle of life again. I advise you watch the first "Lion King" cartoon if you've never done so until now.

After death one goes to the grave. Life after death is the doctrine of the devil. The devil told our first mother in Gen. 3:4 "you shall not surely die" That is indeed the origin of immortality of the soul. The dead sleep in the grave. On the day or resurrection, the dead in Christ shall rise first to eternal life while the dead sinners will rise to eternal destruction.
