What do you think happens after we die?

Do you believe in reincarnation, heaven/hell, simply being gone? What do you think and what exactly supports your beliefs?

Report as

I think that you are just gone, kaput, no more, dust in the wind, fertilizer.

I think we are gone. Everything we know about death and human body supports that, and what we know about how people make up stories to feel better supports the other beliefs to not be real.

I was simply asking him or her not to do that. If I came off the same way, then I am sorry. I saw it as no different than asking someone to not use profanity. It is something I do not like, and someone else might take offense and try something a little more drastic. If I was wrong, then I again apologize.

I can't MAKE anyone believe things I do. so why you all freaking out when I state what I know to be true?
Report as
You could never make me believe something that I don't believe in. That's not the point. You're being forceful and rude and acting like your religion is the only religion out there. How would you like it if someone else from another religion told you that you were wrong and were going to hell? How would you like it if I started insulting your religion and saying that Agnostic Atheism is better? I'm sure that you wouldn't care for that, and that would be very rude. And that's why I'm not saying much of anything about my religion, because you obviously don't believe that same things, and I don't want to insult anyone.
Report as
no I wouldn't care if someone else shared their thoughts about what they believe. you see our Society thinks many different things. " Its not offensive to state your belief " everyone says, UNTIL Christians come along. its not shoving anything down your throat for me to say ill pray for you, and frankly you technically shouldn't care if I do. because if what I believe isn't true, why would it be ofensive if it can't do anything for you?
Report as
No it's not a problem to state your beliefs until you sound threatening, offensive, or rude. From the start you have been sarcastic and rude and acted as if everyone has the same beliefs as you. You have acted with out of line. My statement was merely about heaven and hell, not Christian religion and God. And then you overpower the conversation, telling me I'm wrong, that I'm not a good person, say that I'm foolish for not believing what you do, and then say you'll "pray for me" to find YOUR God. How insulting!!

State your beliefs as much as you like, but Christians acting like this is the reason why so many people avoid conversations with Christians. I've had many pleasant conversations, calmly, without insult with Christians. But this was just insulting.

JD...
Here's your gods plan of salvation.
God decides to save mankind, to save them from his eternal damnation. To do so, he will send his son, who is one with himself, to be sacrificed to himself, in atonement for the sins committed against himself.
He chooses a people to help him do it. He makes sure that they know his plan by sending prophets. But if his people know his son is the the messiah, they will not kill him, and his plan will be spoiled.
So, he makes his prophecies murky so that the people he chose to help him will kill him.
His scheme works.
What a divine script.
Report as
You need to care about your relationship with God through Jesus. If Jesus forgives your sins, then you are saved. Repent and ask him into your heart. There is an afterlife. (Heaven or hell forever). Read the book of John 3 times. go to a Full Gospel church.

Regardless, that point is, ravenenan, respect his religion. JD, respect our (lack of) religion. We don't agree, and never will. You're not going to convince us of yours just as much as we aren't going to convince you of ours.

Everyone disperse! lol Have a Good Day. ^_^
Report as
@JD: Not only are your statements and prayers for those who do not share your beliefs disrespectful, they are incredibly condescending. First, to suggest that it is difficult for you to put things into "human terms" for those of us who are beneath you and your superior understanding of "inhuman terms", suggests how out of touch you are with the rest of the human race. Secondly, acquaint yourself with the study of people who all were suffering from the same life-threatening illness, and who all had identical treatments and surgeries. Unbeknownst to them, half had an army of people praying for them, the other half did not. The people that had been prayed for had significantly worse outcomes, many of which did not recover. Conversely, the ones who did not receive prayer, recovered faster with less complications and only one ultimately lost his battle. So, irrespective of your questionable intentions, you do not have the right to harm others by inflicting your superstitions upon them. Thirdly, you need to locate the verse in the Bible that clearly states to pray in private. It is an outlandish demonstration of pride to engage in this blatant and blasphemous display so publicly and does nothing to foster any kind of reverence for the Almighty. Lastly, although the Pope is no more qualified than anyone else to speak on behalf of God, as far as I am concerned, he has said that atheists who endeavor to do good works on Earth by loving thy stranger as thyself, will inherit the kingdom of God. He, by the way, has far more followers than fundamentalist Christians and their greedy, corrupt, money-grubbing TV evangelists. Wasn't it the Bible that said, the love of money is the root of all evil?

I see you posting that around a lot." Who are you or me to judge God? " that's what people often answer to that. And it is true.

God will still use man's stubborness to His glory.

Population growth is from many older souls returning now, no souls are not split and they get a new life according to how good their last life was. There is always new souls as people pass away.

I believe we go to heaven or hell based on your standings with God through the christian faith. I can give several reasons:

1. There are many startling things pointed out in the bible that pre-date what was known at the time. (Earth was a circle, the universe is expanding, ETC)

2. When you ask for forgiveness and to be saved you feel a whole lot better. You can really tell something has happend.

3 . The christians holy book (Holy Bible) is not as contradicting (I think I spelled that right, you get the point) as other Holy books.

Actually the earth is not the center of the universe as the bible states, or even the first creation of the biblical God. And at one point they did believe it was flat, maybe a circle, but flat, a ball however is not flat. I've never heard of the universe expanding from the bible. You'll have to inform me on that one.

It contradicts itself in nearly every book more then once, sometimes over and over again.

Feeling good because you confessed something to a God that already knew you did it is not an evidence, it's a feeling because you think someone understands and forgives you (you can do that to a close friend and have the same feeling).

Revelation 21:8 says, "But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” Hope this helped! :)

Well Jesus said to Nicodemus in John 3:1-7 when he asked the same question:
"1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."
Also in Acts 2:38 {Look it up} He said ye must be born again. In Acts, it says you NEED to be baptized in the name of Jesus and recieve the gift of the Holy Ghost. All this in order to get into the kingdom of heaven. Ye MUST be born again.

So if I want to be saved I should go to a pastor correct? I've heard of people being saved by simply asking God ? btw Thank you!
Report as
What you need to do is pray to Him, ask God to save you. Your pastor can do nothing but pray for you. But what you need to do when you go to your pastor, ask him to baptize you in the name of Jesus Christ as it says to do in Acts 2:38. And show him the verse. That'll prove it. :) But just pray and ask God to fill you with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. He will give it to you. And you will know when he gives it to you cause you feel a sudden peace, understanding, hope and love. The peace that passes all understanding! Don't give up, go all the way, your almost there. You just got to believe. Ask God to let you be born again. And look up what speaking in tongues is. It's the best thing that has ever happened to me.

To truly be saved, I recommend getting your hands on a Life Application Bible (Amazon is the cheapest I have found). Sit down without distractions and start reading the gospel of Matthew. Read the footnotes along the way. They will help you make sense of the scriptures if you have any trouble understanding.
At the same time, if you struggle with your belief in God, as you open the Bible, ask Him to show you if He is real. Read on, and be ready for His answer to come.

Whether you believe in it or not you will go either to a wonderful place that is bright and soothingly warm where the music is like out of this world and you have a feeling of absolute contentment and bliss. Where as if you go to the other place you will be reliving every mean thing you did to get there and all of your victims well you will experience their sadnesses, their heartache, their terror, their pain that you inflicted upon them. That is what I believe occurs.

Well for the longest time I thought it was either Heaven or Hell, and naturally I automatically thought that I would be going to Heaven. (Until I decided to be a "wise guy" and take yet another bite of the fruit of the Forbidden Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Hell, sometimes I think not only did I take another bite; I ate the whole thing! Which is not as bad as what others have done--Plucked additional fruit from the Tree and made "Pruno" with it!!)

Whoa that's crazy! Because because we are sinners, God thinks (KNOWS) we should go to hell for our sins.but God WANTS Us to join him in heaven! He sent us His Son to save us from our sins. we need to accept Jesus as your Savior, in order to be clean so we can enter into heaven with him. That's what His Word says in John 3:16.

I think that If you live a good life, are baptized, live the commandments, repent your sins, and perform the ordinances asked of us, we go back to heaven and live with Heavenly Father, your family and your close friends forever. This is a personal belief, and I cannot point to any universally accepted facts that support it, but there is also nothing to disprove it. These are the things I have come to know through reading my scriptures and feeling the guiding hand of the Holy Ghost as I pray about it.

when we died, our soul will leave our body,some want to stay close to their beloved one, some died with regrets, some got kill by an accident which lead to them to despair and wonders, some got kill by a human hands which lead them to hatred which lead to commit sins which is causing harms or activity in the human world, they are the most cruelest spirits that will hurt/haunt/kill a beings just to satisfy their hunger for revenge or go after those who kill them intentionally. some decide to go to a big door that lead to what we called 'reincarnation' some are caught by the hell guard cause of their undo sins that they committed in the human world.some are guided by a ray of light or what people called it, 'angel' that guide them to heaven.I know alots of things about spirit related, I have also seen ghost back when I was in Cambodia.

We have a dual nature. You are made up of body and spirit....you are a physical AND a spiritual being. At the moment of our death, our two natures separate. Our bodies decompose and decay, returning to the ground. But our spirits return to God. According to the Bible, there are two intermediate states after death. Paradise and Hades. Those who have faith in Christ will go to paradise. Those who reject Christ will go to Hades. This is not heaven and hell. These are precursors to heaven and hell. Souls will not be sent eternally to heaven or hell until the second coming of Christ and God's final judgment.

I believe this is all we have, why? Because there is not one shred of evidence to the contrary. Religions preach life in heaven or reincarnation and such, but being there is no evidence outside that "someone" or "some book" says there is, does not make the whole thing to be true.

The problem here is you search for evidence alone. The reason you can't find God your way, is the same reason all other skeptics and or atheist's can't. Why? Think about it, why would God reveal himself to a person who seeks only with his mind, and their only aim is to better themselves?

When we "die" we will either go to Heaven or we will go to Hell.

I know this is true because God has given me new life in Christ. I know Christ is true because of my experience and because of the testimony of His life as was given by the apostles. I believe the apostles because they died for Him.

The apostles, all who witnessed the miracles and resurrection of Christ were killed and they never denied Christ, even in the hour of their deaths they remained faithful to the Gospel.

"Many men will die for what they believe in, but no man is willing to die for a lie."

If Christ was a liar, and He never rose from the dead, the apostles would have withdrew, but they didn't, and to me this is the greatest testimony to Jesus Christ.
He is risen!

when we die we will all be before the throne of God to be judged. those who are washed in the blood of the Lamb will go to heaven, and those who are living in their sin will be sent to eternal punishment in hell. not very sexy is it, if you're not washed in the blood of the Lamb. if you don't believe it, doesn't mean its not true. if you don't believe it up police officer, and you're speeding, you'll still get pulled over. I was hunting in the woods one time, what I saw a moose, the Moose ran off about a hundred feet and stuck his head behind a tree . moose I think that if they can't see you then you must not see them.. people are that way a lot, they don't want to see the truth so they try to prove it wrong with science. but that still doesn't change a thing. I pray that everyone who reads this message will be convicted by God.

Here's your gods plan of salvation.
God decides to save mankind, to save them from his eternal damnation. To do so, he will send his son, who in one with himself, to be sacrificed to himself, in atonement for the sins committed against himself.
He chooses a people to help him do it. He makes sure that they know his plan by sending prophets. But if his people know his son is the the messiah, they will not kill him, and his plan will be spoiled.
So, he makes his prophecies murky so that the people he chose to give birth to the savior of all will kill him.
His scheme works.
What a divine script.

raven,
I see you posting that around a lot." Who are you or me to judge God? " that's what people often answer to that. And it is true. But God is a just God so I can't help but think we need to look at his nature to understand His reasons. often times people harden their hearts in the Bible, like Pharo in the old testament,but look back in the book of proverbs where it states something like "he who hardens his heart will suddenly be broken beyond repair ". God will still use man's stubborness to His glory.

What I think happens is that we go to heaven, then you stand before god and then he tells you what sins you commited and might ask you why you did these sins. And he'll tell you of the good things you did and after that you find out if you stay in heaven with God, Jesus and the other people in heaven forever or if you've been bad enough of a person then they go to hell.

Well simply, in the bible it says that I you are a true believer in Jesus Christ, that when you die, you would be buried, but your soul would be in Heaven, it would be like your living in the world, but instead of all the bad and sinning, it would be purfect. No crying, loneliness, or dreadful times. But, if you do not believe in Jesus, you will go to hell. Crying, upset, hard times, and everything that is horrible. So please, if you are not a believer, please become one. Jesus loves you and died on the cross for all of our sins. Trust me, I'm a believer and it is the most wonderful thing ever! Jesus gives me comfort and happiness. So, please start reading the Bible, it is the best book.

But do you think that Jesus just made up the part about h*ll that way he would have more followers and believers?

srry I just saw your question. well, no Jesus did not make up hell. what happened was Lucifer(satan or devil) was once an angel, but he wanted to overcome God and become king, which obviously did not happen. God sent Lucifer away, and he created a thing called hell. after that, Satan will stay there until God calls all his followers up to Heaven(what some people call the end of the world) and then he will let satan and his people(non believers) have a hell on earth. if you have other questions, please feel free to ask.

There is a large body of evidence from near-death experiences and they are consistent across cultures. http://www.near-death.com/experiences/evidence06.html

As to written evidences, the Bible has some very compelling imagery that seems to fit within the evidence as gathered from NDE, so my money is on there being something to it.

Well, since Jesus said, "You must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God", then this is what is important. Either we are born again or not, although some can be born again of the spirit and not use the term born again, and Jesus saves those who call upon his name. See Romans 10:9-13.

There is an afterlife because God created us to live forever. We must know the Lord and follow Jesus to be part of the Kingdom of God according to John 10:27-29. We must persevere to the end according to Matt. 24:13.

Simply being gone. Not only do I believe but I know and every body knows. Support ; mourning, eulogy, burial and never to be seen by the love ones except when one comes back as a ghost especially to haunt.

Heaven and Hell. Yes I do believe. Ever since I was introduced to the Heaven and Hell thing I came to know right and wrong the more. True and false the more. I sin everyday and feel sorry sooner about them. The process of sinning being sorry and remaining sinless for a moment has never ceased in me. Hopefully when the Judgment day trumpet is blown my cycle shall be terminated at sinless state:)

Now these are my beliefs and not subject to debate. They are copy righted.

If there is a Heaven and Hell.. they are not what the Christians.. or any other Religion will tell you.. because they do not know. Religion has screwed way more people then it has helped.
There was a beginning (many call God) I call The Great Mathematician... (TGM for short)
Created all that is and all that will ever be in 1 moment at the beginning... energy... gravity .. and matter... we were there also... just not realized yet...when we die our energy (spirit if you will) leaves the body (matter) and joins all the other energy out there.. our body rots.. poof.. but TGM remembers you... you are never forgotten.

Only God can reveal this information, the Bible says: “As the [beast] dies, so the [man] dies; and they all have but one spirit . . . All are going to one place. They have all come to be from the dust, and they are all returning to the dust.” (Ecclesiastes 3:19, 20) There is no mention here of a fiery hell. Humans return to dust—to nonexistence—when they die.
In order to be tormented, an individual has to be conscious. “The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten.” (Ecclesiastes 9:5) It is impossible for the dead, “conscious of nothing at all,” to experience the agonies of hellfire. When we die we paid for ors sins. “The wages sin pays is death.” (Romans 6:23) Jesus died for our sins so that even though we die we can live again if God has searched our heart and dreamed us worthy. One day soon many will be resurrected to life again. “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out,...to a resurrection.”—John 5:28, 29 www.jw.org
