Matters of life and death
Christian beliefs about life after death
Why Christians believe in life after death:
Jesus rose from the dead. Creeds taught this.
John the Divine teaches in Revelation that at the end of the world the dead will be raised and
brought before God for judgement (Good enter Heaven).
Jesus taught he would come again at the end of the world for a final judgement.
Many Christians believe the sol will never die and will leave the body to live with God.
Many Christians believe in life after death because it gives their lives meaning and purpose,
like life to end at death doesn't make sense and being judged on how you lived your life
does.

Christians try to avoid committing sins in their lives so that they will go to heaven.
Islam and LAD
Why Muslims believe in LAD?
The Qur'an teaches there is LAD which Muslims believe is the word of God therefore should
believe whatever the Qur'an says.
Muhammad taught there is LAD and Muhammad is a perfect example for Muslims to follow
therefore they must believe whatever he taught.
Muslims believe that this life is a test from God which involves the need for judgement and
there is a reward for those who pass. Judgement and reward can only happen if there is LAD.
Islam has six fundamental beliefs (belief in: Allah, his angels, holy book, his messengers, the
last day and LAD) Muhammad said all Muslims must believe these.
How Muslim beliefs about LAD affect the lives of Muslims
Islam teaches that on the Last Day all humans will be gathered before God on a vast plain and
judged by God. Muslims will be judged on how good they lived their lives so Muslim's all try
to live a good Muslim life to go to Heaven.
