What really happens when we die?
Your best friend is crushed when his 10-year-old son dies of cancer. He tells you that he is comforted, at least, that one day he'll get to see his child again in heaven.
Later that day, you begin to wonder... Is there life after death? Are heaven and hell real places? Do our souls continue to exist in some form?
What do you really believe?
Following an accident in my early teens, I had been stabilized after receiving nine units of blood. Then one night, while lying in a hospital, I began to bleed out for a third time. I soon found my conscious self floating near the ceiling and looking down on my own body as three nurses and a doctor rushed in.
This might be the biggest subject religion ever has to tackle. Death as the ending of a cycle gives purpose to our lifespan and yet it is also an incredible unknown (and heading into something unknown is, frankly, terrifying)
I'm going to Hell when I die.
I have come to a comfortable place of agnosticism concerning the afterlife.
God will continue to inspire us on a holy adventure beyond the grave.
One's closeness with God today affects our comfort level in the afterlife.
Life truly ends with death.
I believe in the eternal personality of souls.
Reincarnation depends on the individual's karma.
There is more to Life than the material world.
We will all be held accountable on the Day of Judgment.
It starts with passage, a sense of homecoming, and a meeting with God.
If someone asked me if there is a heaven and hell, I think I would say, "Surprise me."
It is not what I know about the future that anchors my hope.
Heaven is like college . . . so much to learn, so much to do.
Whatever happens after we die, it will be good.
