This is one of the great questions of life: What happens when we die? Is death the end of human existence and consciousness, or do we continue in some other place or state of being? Do we go to a place of everlasting reward or eternal torment? Are we destined to be reincarnated, coming to life again in a different body in a seemingly endless cycle of living and dying? Will we ever see deceased loved ones again? Is there somewhere you can go to find the answers?In spite of centries of research, science cannot tell us when, where or how life began. Only one source tells us how life began and for what purpose. Shouldn't we go to that source ...view middle of the document...

For example, if we were good and helped the sick and went to church every week, we would be given a lifetime of happiness in heaven, whilst someone who's been to mass once and killed a bus load of people will go to hell. Personality, I believe that no one knows, sure, people can guess and pray they go to heaven. I on the other hand, don't. I believe that were we go after life is a surprise, a reward if you will for eternal love and worship of our god.Britannica DvD 1999, says on the subject: "Death is the renewal of life, it's the leaving behind of old skin for new skin to be put on, but if you have abused your skin, you'll be left with it when life on earth is over and its time for judgment" I find that very interesting, the "skin" is used to mean our life, the leaving behind of our life to begin a new one, and if you have abused your life (drugs, rape, killing, stealing etc) you wont be rewarded with the new life, you'll be stuck in your old life, but in "hell". Many people would disagree with this though, like people from the Catholic, Anglican churches, who believe that life after death Is told in the bible, as It is, will be and always shall be. I however disagree.In conclusion, life after death, is whatever you want it to be, because no one knows, no one will find out, till the day of judgment, the day they die.Sources used:Britannica DvD (1999)
